Lil' Drummer Girl


Aug 2, 2018

When I learned that Stick Figure would be headlining with Slightly Stoopid and Pepper this summer at the Vinoy Park in St. Petersburg, FL I knew I had to meet up with them and catch their show.

 

Kevin Offitzer is here today. He is the drummer with Stick Figure. If you're not familiar with Stick Figure, it was formed by frontman Scott Woodruff, a native from Duxbury, Massachusetts who has been portrayed as a one-man-band. Scott began recording a series of albums under the moniker of Stick Figure, he would sell tens of thousands of copies of each of his self-produced releases exclusively by word of mouth and social media, all tracks of which were recorded solo with Woodruff laying down the tracks one by one. The current live band line-up features Kevin Offitzer on drums, Tommy Suliman on bass, Kevin Bong (K-Bong) on keyboards and Johnny Cosmic on Guitar.

The band has toured with Rebelution, Dirty Heads, Collie Buddz, The Green and Tribal Seeds.

Their album Set in Stone Vinyl Edition is a double album set and has special features with

On November 13, 2015, the group released their sixth studio album, Set in Stone.  It peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard Reggae Albums chart and spent 78 weeks there.  The 14-track album includes collaborations with Eric Rahmany of Rebelution, Slightly Stoopid, Kbong and Collie Buddz.
