SUBURBAN LEGENDS & MC LARS+ THE BOTTOM LINE

Buddies since high school, third wave ska vets Suburban Legends are here with more of their distinct blend of fizzy ska and sugary pop, with accents of disco and funk. The Orange County-based group’s latest EP, Dreams Aren’t Real But These Songs Are (Rock Ridge Music), is a reverently played and imaginatively arranged collection of Disney classics.

Suburban Legends’ story basically begins in the early 2000s at the Disneyland theme park. For years, the guys held a semi-regular gig performing covers and originals, winning patrons’ hearts with boundless musicality and an unflinchingly positive live show that boasts dazzling choreography. This era coincided with height of the Cali ska scene that launched the careers of No Doubt, Goldfinger, and Reel Big Fish. Suburban Legends distinguished themselves from the pack by favoring sleek pop grooves that playfully and ingeniously recalled late ’90s Top 40.

Over their career, the band has released five albums, six EPs, and two DVDs. Suburban Legends have built an impressive live profile playing multiple tours throughout the US, UK, Europe, and Canada, undertaking successful runs with big names like Reel Big Fish, Less Then Jake, Bowling for Soup, and Goldfinger.
