Founded in 2002, the American Ska punk band from New Brunswick, New Jersey reconvened in 2007. Despite a number of lineup changes, they went on to create one of the most celebrated ska albums of that year. “Somewhere in the Between” spawned the singles “We Will Fall Together” and “Would You Be Impressed.” Following the album, Streetlight Manifesto was tapped to perform at the Bamboozle Left festival. In 2009, the band joined the Warped Tour.
In 2018, the band celebrated the 15-year anniversary of “Everything Goes Numb,” their debut album.
According to the band’s Facebook page, Streetlight Manifesto is made up of seven guys boasting seven different musical backgrounds and seven different personalities. Together, they form one band with one unique and unmistakable voice.
A mix of rock and ska, the band is also influenced by Latin, Klezmer, folk, world, funk, jazz and classical elements. Streetlight Manifesto has redefined what most people expected from a ska band. To date, the band has released five albums and toured the globe. “The Hands that Thieve,” their most recent release, marked the end of their association with Victory Records.
Since that time, Streetlight Manifesto have kept busy touring and performing live to sold-out shows. The band’s current lineup includes Tomas Kalnoky on lead vocals and guitar; Jim Conti on vocals and alto and tenor saxophone; Chris Thatcher on drums; Mike Brown on baritone and alto saxophone as well as backing vocals; Pete McCullough on bass and backing vocals; Matt Stewart on trumpet and backing vocals; and Karl Lyden on trombone and backing vocals.
