$1000 - $3500 per event
Rude Boy George is a band that does 80's New Wave classics and reinterprets them in ska/reggae/rocksteady versions. Rude Boy George formed in January 2013 with members drawn from several popular and long-standing NYC area ska bands: Bigger Thomas (vocalist Roger Apollon, bassist/Marco on the Bass blogger Marc Wasserman), Across the Aisle (singer Megg Howe, guitarist Jesse Gosselin and saxaphonist Jackie Chasen) and The Royal Swindle (keyboardist Pamela Buckley, drummer Dave Heise).

The band's live debut took place at Electric Avenue in Manhattan on April 13, 2013 to a very enthusiastic crowd and the band has played close to a dozen other gigs throughout the New York area since. Our perpetually expanding set list includes songs by Human League, Soft Cell, The Romantics, Billy Idol, INXS, The Smiths, Cyndi Lauper, Squeeze, Culture Club, Gary Numan, Psychedelic Furs, Talking Heads, Berlin, and The Pretenders.

In May 2013, Rude Boy George recorded three tracks at Bill Laswell's studio in West Orange, NJ with ex-General Public/Special Beat/English Beat bassist Wayne “WayyLo” Lothian producing. The result is our five-track digital EP Take One (with "(Keep Feeling) Fascination," "Don't Change," and "Talking in Your Sleep"--plus two remixes featuring Antonee First Class), now available through Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby and other major digital platforms. They have released their first full length album, Confessions, on Trilby Records on December 5, 2014.
