Skank Bank: Skank Bank is an American reggae fusion band from the San Francisco Bay Area formed in 2013. The diverse collective of musicians is led by California born bandleader/arranger Gabriel Winter (guitar/vocals). The band has an eclectic sound that fuses traditional roots reggae with elements of jazz, funk, rock, and other roots music―known for their organ/percussion heavy grooves, vocal harmonies and heady psychedelic dub jams. Skank Bank is one of the hardest working, top reggae band's hailing from the East Bay in the last decade. Ranging from a quartet to a nonet, the group has had more than 30 members with the only consistent bandmates of Winter's being Liam King (trumpet/vocals), Adam Miller (trombone), Adam Fei Joo (guitar/vocals) and co-founding bassist Jiggly Streich. Emerging from the 924 Gilman Street Berkeley ska-punk revival in early 2013, Skank Bank explored various styles of reggae and ska. Incorperating harmonic dissonance and improvisational elements of jazz with textural elements, groovy jams, and drones of psychedelic music, the group created a cosmic and soulful sound rooted in the sounds of Jamaican one-drop, rockers, and dancehall riddims.
