About The Midtones

Santa Cruz, CA

Bridging the gap between Santa Cruz and Salinas
the Midtones redefine California Reggae with
heavy dose of positive roots. Their unique mix o
skateboard-influenced rocksteady, dub and lover
rock reggae is inspiring people from all walks o
life to simply sing and dance. And some even
to skate

Pool Rebel—the skateboarders’ bouncy, rockin
twist on the Bob Marley classic Soul Rebel done i
a Gladiators style—has become a favorite of liv
audiences. Mid-tempo funky fare like I’ve Bee
Down and Love So Nice keep the crowds dancing
While the slow and soulful For You Girl and dark
somber Life Ain’t Easy provide expressive variety

Founded by Mike Marquez, Mony Lujan, an
Andrew Nack, the Midtones came together as
Livocation to friend and former drummer Eri
“Stello” Costello who passed away in a tragi
skateboarding accident

Stello—an energetic and talented drumme
credited with bringing the musicians together
shared a lifelong dream of playing reggae musi
with friend and vocalist Marquez. Just a fe
weeks after the band’s first practice, whil
skateboarding Stello suffered a fatal head injury

The remaining original trio were blessed to hav
drummer Jeremy Campbell step in to fill the larg
shoes left behind by his predecessor. They calle
upon Jason “Skinner Dread” Skinner on keys an
have continued the dream in honor of Stello
