Skid Row Joins Kaces Artist Family

In 1996 Skid Row had top ten singles, gold and multi-platinum album sales, and a No. 1 slot on the Billboard album chart. Skid Row returned to the big stage, opening for Kiss in 2000!

New plans to conquer the world came together in an Atlanta recording studio, but in a different time and a different industry, they decided to record a series of EP’s. The guerrilla burst of recording a concise EP fostered a focused intensity that was liberating. The resulting sound is rambunctious exuberance. They got older, but Skid Row never really grew up. United World Rebellion is still the youth gone wild, their musical spark still burning gasoline.

Skid Row’s second EP “Rise of the Damnation Army – United World Rebellion: Chapter 2” was released on August 6th, hot on the heels of their triumphant appearance at this year’s Download Festival. Their current 18-month long United World Rebellion Tour has blasted at full volume in over 30 countries and leaves no doubt that Skid Row is back on the battlefield in full force.

Kaces is proud to support Skid Row, and welcome them to our growing family of artists.

Napa Based Irish Folk Band The Sorry Lot Joins Kaces Artist Family

Gig bag and instrument case manufacturer Kaces officially welcomes Irish folk band The Sorry Lot to their artist roster. Hailing from Napa, California, the 9 members of The Sorry Lot play many traditional instruments such as the banjo, fiddle, accordion and tin whistle. The band delivers lively renditions of traditional Irish drinking songs, modern ballads as well as their own original tunes.

Named after a snarky comment from a British bartender, the band was formed in 2007 by members of several local bands who shared a passion for Irish Folk music. Their energy and showmanship stems from their Punk Rock and Reggae backgrounds, but their music remains Irish through and through. Once a side project, the band is now the main focus of its members and they continue to perform year round.

The Sorry Lot can be seen playing regularly at pubs and breweries in and around their hometown of Napa, and they are constantly expanding their library of traditional and original songs.

Kaces is proud to welcome The Sorry Lot to their growing family of artists.
