Based north of the Mexicali border, Epic 18 is an Imperial Valley ska/punk rock band playing ska with a jazz, punk, and rock 'n' roll flair. Their 2019 album Epic 18 was produced, mixed and mastered by baritone sax player and vocalist Adam Marquez, a Berklee School of Music Graduate.
"This is a rerelease of the band's first album, Vs. Divides By Zero , but will feature new members, more horns, and a special cover for that little green frog in all of us," says the band.
Later in 2019, the band released an 11-song followup, Epic 18 II. Written over the course of about three months and recorded in-house by Adam Marquez, the band says "It was a collaborative effort on all members' parts, each bringing their unique sound and experiences to the table."
