It’s lining up to be another big season of live shows for one of Reggae-Rocks top headliners, Slightly Stoopid, as the group has finally announced all the details surrounding their Summer Sessions 2014 tour.
There are many traditions associated with summer and for the past seven years, performing at amphitheaters around the US has become a tradition for Slightly Stoopid and their fans. This summer, the San Diego based ensemble will bring their Summer Sessions 2014 tour to 25 cities nationwide. Helping them deliver ultimate jam sessions will be some of Stoopid’s friends, and favorite artists, adored acts that have been on various tours with the group in years past.
Performing for the entire Summer Sessions journey will be none other than 7-time Grammy winner Stephen “Ragga” Marley.
