"Concert Review: Stop The Presses, Antics & Boxwood"

I’ve caught Stop The Presses in the past, twice in fact. once was with boxwood at another venue near Grand Central. The guys in STP aren’t just your local punk ska/surfer band, they are also your friends! One of my favorite things about watching STP is watching the interaction between band mates. When they go on stage, what ever may go on behind closed doors instantly vanishes. They genuinely vibe, and watching them jump around allows the fans to see how much they love to perform and want everyone to be involved and to have fun. Front woman Ali Culotta instantly brings to mind vintage No Doubt, albeit with an edge attached. STP is a must see band. And c’mon, watching people skank and two-step is just classic. All in all, a great concert with some great up and coming bands. - Juan Hernandez - New noise webzine

"Music is Here"

Stop the Presses is a band that merged from the very deep of Miami’s music scene. Since 2010, this Hialeah group formed by Ali Culotta, Danny Portilla, Gus Rojo and Keko Kubat, had been spreading ska, funk and big band melodies all around Miami’s underground stages. With a Violent Femmes meets No doubt vibe their music can captivate any 90’s ska nostalgic – they even have their own fan club!- - Flor Frances - Wasabi fashion cult


"Stop the Presses"

One of those bands was Stop The Presses, who really wowed us (the smashed judges) by being both very professional (some band took about 45 mins to set up/soundcheck, it was fucking torture) and very talented. Their bright, ska/pop instantly snapped everyone at Churchill’s into a fun, bouncy vibe, making them forget it was like 2AM on a Sunday. - Omar - Antisteez tv

"This just in: An Interview with Stop the Presses"

It’s about 1,270 miles (2,043km) from Hialeah, Florida, a suburb just north of Miami, to Brooklyn, a borough in south-east New York City. It’s also the distance Ali Culotta and Danny Portilla traveled a few years back when they decided to take their band, Stop The Presses, to the next level. They’re traveling a lot more these days, last year on the Warped Tour and now wrapping up a US tour in support of their new album, “Money in the Bank,” recorded at the famous Relic Room in NYC, with The Slackers’ Agent Jay and friends spinning the dials. I caught the band early on their tour in Buffalo, where, despite it being a Tuesday night, they got the crowd dancing. - Reggae Steady Ska

After their debut show in 2018 at the Van’s Warped Tour in Holmdel, NJ, Stop the Presses has been busy touring multiple cities in the North East like Philadelphia, Providence, Portland, New London, and Washington D.C, anticipating the release of their latest album “Money In the Bank”.
