PRESENTED BY ZACHARY JOHNSON
Stop the Presses is a female-fronted four piece band that began in late 2010. Huge fans of all that is retro and vintage, the band marries old pop genres with a new approach to ska and reggae. Catchy choruses, innovative song structures and new wave/punk rock synth/guitar leads are what makes a Stop the Presses song.
Stop the Presses is Ali Culotta on lead vocal and keys, Danny Portilla on guitar and Elle Forte on drums.
After releasing the "Does it Still Look Pretty?" EP, Stop the Presses has both written and performed a musical by guitarist Danny Portilla, won First Place as Miami's Hard Rock Rising Winner, was nominated as The Ultimate Miami Band in 2013 and been featured as one of Miami New Times' Best Ska Band. Their success has also been noted across the United States after having released a 7-inch vinyl record featuring songs like "Skanking Private Ryan" and "Daddy Issues Volume II" with California label the Big Ska Gamble. They toured their latest EP "E-Ska-ndalo" in Fall of 2013 throughout the Midwest, and played the Vans Warped Tour in San Diego and Sacramento California Summer of 2014.
Stop the Presses has been honored to open for ska legends The Mighty Mighty Bosstones at Sunfest 2012, South Florida's largest musical festival and opened for other great acts like: The Slackers, The Supervillians, Reel Big Fish, Fishbone, Less Than Jake, Ballyhoo, Authority Zero, The Expendables, Big D and the Kids Table and Kayavibe.
