Chase Long Beach
FILTER: ALL VIDEOS
Formed in Southern California in 2002, third wave ska/punk band Chase Long Beach toured heavily throughout North America and Europe, in the process developing a high energy sound that explored sophisticated lyrical themes while retaining modern ska’s trademark party spirit. The group’s big break came when dynamic lead vocalist Karen Roberts was invited to sing onstage during a Reel Big Fish concert. RBF singer Aaron Barrett was so impressed, he signed on to produce the band’s debut album, LEBEC. The album’s success and Chase Long Beach's hard-working DIY efforts led to opening slots with Buck-O-Nine and the Toasters, and the combo’s eventual signing with Victory Records.
