Hooliganz, became the evolving name of the bad boys of reggae, who founded their name in representation of their tough, rugged looks and their style of music. Although, many may have the misconception of the meaning of the word Hooligans, its true origin and meaning is--family. True to the name of the band and their Samoan roots, the Hooliganz, is very much a family.

Representing the South Bay area of California, the Hooliganz today began their journey in 2005. Like many bands that have gone through the struggles of working together; the Hooliganz have foregone changes, in which have made them to be who they are today. Through their music, the group hopes to share their messages of unity, love, consciousness, and a positive movement in overcoming the physical oppression and mental slavery of today’s society. Their combination of melody and harmony in their music is what makes them stand out from other reggae bands. With the distinctive reggae sounds that incorporates heavy distortion guitars along with their rootsy tones, the Hooliganz have made a resonance of their own. In addition to their auspicious sounds, they have recently accumulated a horn section to distinguish the blues/jazz/rock vibe that flows well with their already distinctive reggae sounds of lover’s rock/dub/ska/dance-hall/and roots.

The Hooliganz love to spread their rootsy ‘vibe so nice’ style that attracts music lovers from all genres of music. Their love, talent, passion for music, cultural heritage, and respect for each other is what holds this reggae ensemble together.
