Loose Nutts deliver tunes ranging from mosh pit hyper to pillow talk mellow. Born and raised in Oceanside, the group blends ska, reggae, and punk. The band has opened for the Misfits, the Briggs, Afroman, and Buck-o-Nine, and they've performed at venues like the Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas, Whiskey a-Go-Go, On the Rox, etc.
An EP called Ear Buzz was released in Autumn 2012.
