Slightly Stoopid Returns to Riverfront Park

Slightly Stoopid Returns to Riverfront Park

On the Sounds of Summer 2017 tour, the Ocean Beach, California based group continues the popular and successful tradition at Riverfront Park. Music Farm Productions presents Slightly Stoopid and their "contagious feel-good vibe" to the town of North Charleston.

Pollstar couldn't have said it better: "Where Slightly Stoopid plays is usually where the party's at." The party starts this Friday at Riverfront Park... Meet the hosts!

Co-founders and multi-instrumentalists Kyle McDonald and Miles Doughty, along with drummer Ryan “Rymo” Moran; percussionist Oguer “OG” Ocon; saxophonist Daniel “Dela” Delacruz; keyboardist Paul Wolstencroft; trumpet and trombone player Andy Geib; plus special guest and “unofficial 8th member” Karl Denson (The Rolling Stones/Greyboy Allstars) on saxophone.

When asked about Sounds of Summer 2017, Miles Doughty tells it how it is: "It's gonna be a summer of madness when we the hit the road with our boys Iration, J Boog, and The Movement for the Sounds Of Summer 2017 tour. Smokestacks and sunshine while spending the summer jamming, BBQ-ing, and hanging with friends. Doesn't get much better than that!"

The tour is already in full force and Slightly Stoopid has been moving down the east coast doing exactly that. The group has been continuously traveling and sharing their own subculture and lifestyle with their dedicated fans to keep the party going. No one can describe the intentions of the group better than Doughty: 

"Over the last several years we started our own studio and invested into innovations and equipment, upgrades in a quest to capture and progress our ideal signature sound. Having our own studio really enables us to make records at our own pace and to make the right records, hopefully (with a grin) at various stages of our career,” Doughty continues.

“What's nice about having our own environment to record in, and analyze the music, is it really lets us keep an organic feel. For Slightly Stoopid, I feel like it's a step into the next level, as far as understanding the process of recording, understanding the process of songwriting. We took everything that we've learned over the years and really put it into this place and into our music.”

"We started Stoopid Records around 1999,” Doughty clarifies. “At that time, we were in transition as far as what we were doing with our records, and we thought it would be good to have our own independent label. What's nice is we've had a following with the fans, where people understand that Stoopid Records is Slightly Stoopid, as well as other bands we want to help break out." 

The group is known for entertaining a wide fan base; KROQ Radio Los Angeles says, “Slightly Stoopid seems to have all generations of music listeners on tap, from 80-year-old blues lovers with their slinky guitar riffs and 18-year-old stoners with the energy-laden hip-hop inspired ska tunes." 

For a completely authentic sound and undeniably good time, meet the group this weekend. From reading what Slightly Stoopid, dedicated fans and members of the Music Farm Productions' team have to say about the upcoming event, I'd advise against missing Friday at Riverfront Park. The group is pumped to return to the local venue in North Charleston to keep the party going.
