Stacked Like Pancakes
Reinvigorating the sounds of classic ska, Stacked Like Pancakes (SLP) piles on boisterous horns and punk
rock attitude to create high energy music synthesizing the vibes of Reel Big Fish, twenty one pilots, Foo
Fighters, Paramore, Cage the Elephant, and an untraceable amount of other artists and genres. Since
2007, SLP has shared the stage with national and international acts, toured on the Vans Warped Tour,
headlined their own self-booked tours, released their latest crowd-funded 15-track monster-album THIS
IS US in December 2015, and in 2016 went on the road with Reel Big Fish for a month-long nation-wide
The token with this group is their live performance. Concert venues and music patrons alike should be
prepared for the stage to shake, the crowd to be wild and unpredictable, and the show to be a
deliberate fusion of spontaneity and precision. Their community fan base – the #PancakeNation – is
hungry for their band to grow. Stacked Like Pancakes epitomizes a tough DIY band despite a meaningless
band name, and are rightfully on the rise to claim an international stage of their own.
