MOTTO: "You can't argue with people dancing!!" We are rockin' psychedelic reggae funk that would get even the most comatose people tappin' their feet. Soulful vocals, over dynamic backbeat, exploring the cosmos with one toe in the Carribean.

Biography

Chronic Jester, based in Santa Rosa Beach, FL, is a high energy power trio whose strength lies in its own infectious brand of Reggae, Rock, Funk and Blues. Chronic Jester stands apart by being a song driven package that eschews self-indulgent noodling in favor of catchy tunes and vibrant melodies tied together with its own stylistic ribbon. Hypnotic reggae, booty shakin' funk, and scorching blues are topped off by spectacular instrumental interplay and deep in-the-pocket grooves. Live shows are further highlighted through use of the "Toy Box" (a collection of tambourines, cow bells, egg shakers, wood blocks, hats and hula-hoops) that lets fans contribute to the show.
