FUBAR is an original 5 piece reggae/rock & ska/punk band from the greater Pittsburgh, PA area. With 3 studio albums, hundreds of shows in the tri-state area and beyond, work ethic and hustle are not phrases unknown to them. building a loyal fanbase with locals in the scene and nationwide, FUBAR is guaranteed to get the party moving with their own special sauce of sound.
Over the past decade grinding out bar gigs and any opportunity they could find, FUBAR has stayed true to the vision of the style while tuning their approach. Having had multiple independently produced releases, their latest full length album “State Of Mind” has been gaining notoriety on its own via word of mouth both nationally and internationally.
Contributing to the "discography" are other works such as the first full length album "ALL DAY!!" a more street punk inspired mix with rock and reggae peaking through. Their second full length album "The Hunt for Inspiration" features more of the rock/reggae sound as well as the first to feature a horn section into the mix. The 3rd release, an EP titled "Get on the Bus!" provides a much more focused approach to the the style with improved musicality. The latest release "State of Mind" is arguably their most dynamic experience yet, blending rock/reggae/ska/punk with a soundscape of ideas that connect your mind to a working class band from the Steel City.
