Ska/punk/Reggae band on Fat Wreck Chords label from Solvang, CA. While often cited as part of California’s Third Wave Ska scene, the Mad Caddies‘ sound is an eclectic brew that’s rooted in ska, but also takes frequent detours into reggae, punk, pop, surf music, and even trad jazz. Fronted by lead singer and rhythm guitarist Chuck Robertsonthe Mad Caddies came out of Santa Ynez, California in the mid-’90s, where they emerged after stints as Cracked Macaroni and the Ivy League. The group’s energetic and upbeat attack, fueled by cutting guitars and lively horns, was first documented on 1997’s Quality Soft Core, and they moved up to the established punk label Fat Wreck Chords for 1998’s Duck and Cover. The group’s genre-bending style was in especially strong form on 2003’s Just One More, which included the streaming favorite “Drinking for 11.” International touring occupied the band through much of the 2000s, but they bounded back in the 2010s with 2104’s Dirty Rice and 2018’s covers collection Punk Rocksteady.
