Clear Conscience
Clear Conscience
Clear Conscience began as a studio vision of Jeff Conscience and Scott Woodruff (AKA Stick Figure). Creating albums with huge names in Reggae music and success with radio play in Hawaii and California, gracing the Billboard Charts with every release. There was much demand for the live show. Clear Conscience has been playing some of the largest venues and festivals in the Reggae scene. Sharing the stage with such names as Damian “Jr Gong” Marley, Ziggy Marley, Rebelution, Iration, J-Boog, Passafire, Pepper, SOJA, The Green, Nahko & Medicine for the People, Stick Figure,Tribal Seeds, Hirie, Groundation…just to name a few. It became very much realized, the world was not only just ready for Clear Conscience to share their music, but we became a household name with heavy demand. Collectively with over Two Million Views through Youtube channels, to the Multi-Million Plays through Spotify & Apple Music Collectively.

Skank Bank
Skank Bank
Skank Bank is an American reggae fusion band from the San Francisco Bay Area, California, formed in 2013. The diverse collective of musicians is led by California born guitarist/singer Gabriel Winter. The band has an eclectic sound that fuses roots reggae/ska with elements of jazz, funk, and rock―known for their heady psychedelic dub jams and breakdowns. Ranging from a quartet to a nonet, the group has had more than 20 members with the only consistent bandmates of Winter's being trumpet player Liam King, trombone player Adam Miller, and co-founding bassist Jiggly Streich.

Emerging from the 924 Gilman Street Berkeley ska-punk revival in early 2013, Skank Bank explored various styles of reggae and ska. Incorperating harmonic dissonance and improvisational elements of jazz with textural elements, groovy jams, and drones of psychedelic music, the group created a cosmic and soulful sound rooted in the sounds of Jamaican one-drop, rockers, and dancehall riddims.

Skank Bank has toured in United States and has two full-length Albums to their credit; Dance Depository (2016), and Keep Complaining (2015). Their music is also well represented in a variety of films and compilations; James Franco's Metamorphasis Junior Year (2017), Arcane Drama: A Compilation of 924 Gilman St. Music Vol. 1 (2017), UnderCover Presents: A Tribute to Green Day's Dookie (2016), and Gilman Ska Night Vol. 2 (2014).

Skank Bank has shared the stage with The Toasters, Don Carlos, Green Day, The Supervillains, Human Rights (Bad Brains), Roddy Radiation (The Specials), Noorwood Fisher (Fishbone), Voodoo Glowskulls, Skankin Pickle, and many others.
