The Aggrolites, an Orange County based reggae/ska band will be taking the stage at Alex’s Bar for a New Year’s Eve party here in Long Beach. Performing all around Orange County for the better part of a decade, The Aggrolites came together in 2002 when an old reggae and ska band decided to join forces. The band began performing all around the area including Long Beach apartments, homes, and other small bars, while soon garnering some attention from record labels.

The guys will be joined by special guest openers, as well as DJ Goodfoot and DJ Oldboy to spin music in between sets. Alex’s Bar will offer up the opportunity to take in the New Year with one of the area’s great reggae bands, as well as some other great music and activities throughout the night. The Aggrolites released a debut album in 2003, going on to sign a record deal in 2005 and releasing four great albums since. Continuing to grow, the band has opened for major bands such as Slightly Stoopid, Dropkick Murphys and Against Me, to name a few. Aside from touring with great bands, they’ve also collaborated with Tim Armstrong from Rancid on his acclaimed solo album in  2007.
