The Players Band

March 29 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm


Sun Rider Rider 9 Productions presents The Players Band at the Reckless Shepherd on Friday March 29th 2024 from 8:00-11:00pm. Admission is Free must be 21+.



On the heels of the mid-90’s ska revival, The Players Band (TPB) was founded in 1999, drawn in by the infectious rhythms and horn-heavy ska sounds originating in Jamaica in the late 1950s. Over 20 years and 500+ shows later, Baltimore’s ska ambassadors continue blending the best of Jamaican ska and reggae with American rock and roll. With 9 to 11 members, depending on the night, TPB is an amalgam of accomplished musicians, including current members of DC Ska legends The Pietasters, Baltimore’s Jah Works, Bumpin Uglies, Unity Reggae, Scotch Bonnets, Kill Lincoln, and even California’s punk rockers Left Alone. TPB has had the privilege of opening for true legends; from the originators of ska-Grammy Winning Toots & the Maytals and The Skatalites to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Joe Strummer, to the B-52s, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, English Beat, Fishbone, to the Isley Brothers. TPB was recently featured at the 2021 Supernova International Ska Festival and has headlined Baltimore’s New Year’s Eve Spectacular, First Night Annapolis, and the Michael Phelps Olympic Tribute Celebration at Fort McHenry. Venues played include 9:30 Club, The Fillmore, Capital One Arena, Pier 6, Knitting Factory, Trocadero Theatre, Chance Theater, Bottle & Cork, Rams Head Live, 8×10, Ottobar, and many others.
