Biography

Something To Do is ultra-catchy, high-energy, horn-driven rock that fans enjoy without any concern for how they'll feel the next day.

Something To Do’s (S2D) contest winning, duct-tape inspired song, "When I'm Stuck I Turn To Duck Tape", has brought the group national attention, being mentioned on CNN headline news, NPR and in over 150 other media outlets. Something To Do has appeared regularly on radio and televisoin including their hometown Fox6 News and FM 102.1. With nominations for “Group of the Year” and “Best Ska Band” in their home state of Wisconsin, S2D is definitely being noticed by fans and music industry people the like. They’ve rocked everything from the world’s largest music festival, Summerfest (6 times!), the Skappleton music festival, the Ska is Dead tour, and played over 300 other dates in the Midwest, Canada and the East Coast over the last 8 years.

Something To Do prides themselves on being entertainers. S2D works hard to be energetic on stage, and to give energy to the crowd. The band bounces around on stage, yelling and singing, prompting the crowd to participate in the madness "People go to concerts to escape and let loose," says guitarist and head motivator Kenny Maciejewski, "our job is to make sure that happens."

The bands discography includes 3 full CD's over the last 6 years which S2D wrote, produced and recorded in their home studio. The goal of Something To Do is to write instantly catchy songs that people can sing along with even the first time they hear them.

The future holds a busy festival season, with short southern tours and a new album which the band plans to start recording in Fall 2009. An S2D song will be featured on a European Release by Mad Butcher Records later this year.

A short list of bands S2D has shared the stage with: Reel Big Fish, Less Than Jake, Goldfinger, The BoDeans, Patty Smyth and Scandal, The Gufs, Cowboy Mouth, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Paul Sanchez,The Toasters, The Skatellites, Mustard Plug, Big D & the Kids Table, Catch 22, Streetlight Manifesto.
