Special C Background:
Special “C” is a product of Redondo Beach, South Bay, Los Angeles, California. The 3-piece reggae-punk group prides themselves on the laid back approach of bringing the garage to the stage with their style of reggae-rock. The group consists of Dustin Jones on Vocals/Guitar, Evan Pershing on Bass and Jason “Bubba” McMackin on the Drums.
Influenced by local bands, like Pennywise, Sublime, and Black Flag, Special “C” gives you their version of reggae/roots/punk rock. The group fromed, sometime in late 2007, which Bubba hit up Dustin to perform on his birthday in Redondo Beach, CA. From that point forward, Special C was born.
Huge thanks again to Special C for allowing us to share “Downtime” to post up for FREE download. Free music is a privilege that we’re grateful for and we appreciate the work these artists do! Please feel free to download this song for FREE and spread the awareness to your friends!
