    SANTA BARBARA, CA – Today, Slightly Stoopid announce the first round of dates for their Summer Traditions 2022 tour, which will make a stop at Santa Barbara Bowl on July 17. Joining Slightly Stoopid for their Summer Traditions 2022 tour are special guests Pepper, Common Kings, and Fortunate Youth.
    This tour is a nod to the summer outdoor amphitheater circuit the band has performed annually since 2007 but hasn’t taken place for the last two years due to the pandemic. Fans gain first access to the artist presale beginning Wednesday, February 23rd at 10 AM local time, where a very limited amount of “early bird” tickets will be available in each market for $24.99 + fees. Tickets will be available at SlightlyStoopid.com/tour. Slightly Stoopid’s top fans will be notified via email for Spotify presale. Local presales will run on Thursday, February 24.
    Summer Traditions was originally intended as the 2020 tour package, later canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. After a consistent 2 decades on the road came to a halt in 2020, Slightly Stoopid has committed to deliver the same line-up and same experience, amongst many of the same venues in 2022! In an abbreviated 2021, Slightly Stoopid performed a handful of shows including Petco Park in their hometown San Diego, and a landmark two-night sold-out Red Rocks “Double On The Rocks” weekend, which also streamed worldwide on FANS/Relix/Twitch channel to over 3 million viewers. Summer Traditions 2022 is sure to remain an annual rite of passage for the group’s diehard fanbase known as “Stoopidheads”, as they travel the states, sharing good times with one another through music and community, as they have done since the band’s inception 25 years ago.
    Miles Doughty exclaimed, “We’re super pumped to hit the road this summer and finally bring the Summer Traditions Tour around the country!! Always a blessing to share the stage with our good friends Pepper, Common Kings, and Fortunate Youth. We’re looking forward to some epic collaborations on stage and are stoked to keep our summertime tradition going! See you soon Party People!”
    Since 1995, Slightly Stoopid continues to be a musical brotherhood. Founded by Doughty and Kyle McDonald, two musicians determined to succeed on their own terms, the pair of long-time childhood friends, has created a multi-genre fusion of rock, reggae, and blues with hip-hop, funk, American folk, metal, and punk. They remain unwavering in their principles of independence, honoring their diversity of influences and mentors, and furthering their inherited legacy of the Southern California sound. Slightly Stoopid has built a sweeping legacy for itself, continuously expanding in diversity and repertoire. Warriors of the road, their touring has grown exponentially both domestically and internationally with sold-out headlining dates across the world, and festival appearances at famed events such as Coachella, Lollapalooza, New Orleans Jazz Fest, ACL, Outside Lands, and Cali Vibes amongst countless others.
    Twenty-five years into the journey, the prolific collective has much to celebrate; the band founded their own record label, Stoopid Records (over one mil catalog sales and two RIAA certified Gold singles), created and curate their annual sold-out Closer to the Sun destination music festival in Mexico, launched a line of unique, high-quality cannabis products under the guise of Stoopid Organics, and continue to explore (and master) the art of musical collaboration, most recently with such artists such as Bob Weir, Cypress Hill, Barrington Levy, Don Carlos, Chali2na, G. Love, the Marley family, Snoop Dogg, and more.
    Slightly Stoopid is currently riding high on their latest single “Everyday People (Headhunter remix)” featuring hip-hop legend B-Real of Cypress Hill, and long-time collaborator and friend G. Love (G. Love & Special Sauce). The track was produced by Miguel Happoldt (Sublime/Skunk Records) and George Spits (Llama Beats). The foundation of the remix is built upon a drum sample from Herbie Hancock’s Headhunters’ 1975 anthem, “God Make Me Funky,” lending a brilliant jazz fusion and funk vibe elevated by B-Real’s (of Cypress Hill) fresh bars and coupled with G. Love’s original lyrics.
    Don’t miss your chance to see Slightly Stoopid with Pepper, Common Kings and Fortunate Youth at Santa Barbara Bowl on July 17. The Santa Barbara Bowl is located at 1122 North Milpas Street, Santa Barbara, CA 93103.
