Launched in Duxbury, Massachusetts, Stick Figure showcases the talents of multi-instrumentalist and producer Scott Woodruff. Stick Figure’s music has a unique style that creatively blends upbeat roots reggae with the reverberating echoes of dub. Often referred to as the “one man band,” Scott single-handedly created 4 full length albums from 2006-2012 (a fifth album, “Reprise Sessions,” was recorded with a full band and released in 2010), and has sold over 30,000 albums worldwide. Each of Stick Figure’s songs are created by recording instruments individually, layering tracks on top of one another in unison.
The Huntington Bank Pavilion is packed tonight for some reggae rock. Stick Figure takes the stage and the crowd is soon transported to a tropical beach. They play Breathe and everyone sways back and forth to the music. This California band knows how to set a groove and keep it going. They leave the stage with the audience wanting more.
Slightly Stoopid know how to keep a party going. They bring their San Diego SoCal vibe wherever they go, and tonight they’re rocking Chicago. With the temperature hovering right around 80 degrees during their night time show and 12th Street Beach just beyond the venue’s fences, it feels just like California.
Here are the Top 5 Moments:
- They opened with “Schools Out” by Alice Cooper since it is the School’s Out For Summer tour.
- Kyle, the lead singer, kept giving praise to Chicago. “We’ve been coming here for 17 years and we love it!” Chicagoans returned the love with continuous cheers and dancing along for the entire 2 hour plus set.
- The horns were on fire tonight. It was a highlight every time they took the lead on a song.
- They played Tom Petty’s “You Don’t Know How It Feels” in tribute the late great singer
- “Closer to the Sun” – This is such a great tune!
