Biography

Straight through the heat of the Mead Valley sun a "Tumble Weed" rolls across the road. Off in the distance you hear that familiar Ska/ Reggae sound that makes people Jam, Rock and Roll. Who is that you hear, it's Red Store Bums. For the past years Red Store Bums has been tearing the roof off venues all across Southern Callifornia to support their self titled debut LP.

Red Store Bums originated from Mead Valley, CA in 2001. The band started out with 3 members, David on guitar, Albert on Bass, and Manuel (Biker) on Drums. The first few shows consisted of an instrumental number given by the trio. In 2002 Jimmy brought his vocal and song writing talents on board. While recruiting a trumpet player, Edgar (La Banda Skalvera), helped out the band. Finally Victor on trumpet, and Manny on Timbales joined the band. At Ghetto Fest 2003 Red Store Bums made their official debut. Since then the band has not only grown musically but has added a few members. Steven was added on the guitar. To the horn section was added Big David and Ricardo on trumpet and Roberto on Saxaphone.
