Seas. 4 - Ep. 22 - Pumping Out Great Music for Decades While Battling Chronic Lyme Disease with Scott Klopfenstein of Reel Big Fish and The Littlest Man Band


Hello and welcome to the Powered By Rock podcast where I am going to be speaking with a man who has had a great impact on my musical life today in Scott Klopfenstein of The Littlest Man Band and who was also a former member of the legendary ska band Reel Big Fish as well as a player in various other influential bands in the 90’s California ska scene like The Scholars.

I still remember watching “Sell Out” on MTV for an entire summer and rocking out to every Reel Big Fish album that came out for the next 15 years or so.

Scott left Reel Big Fish in 2011 but has been fronting The Littlest Man Band since 2003 or so with some gaps in there to pursue other areas of life like starting a family and dabbling in other artistic endeavors.

I recently saw him perform in Las Vegas, and I was very impressed with how much his style and sound had evolved…especially for a guy who I came to know as the goofball trumpet player in my early years.

He is truly a legend of ska and very much an icon of the scene in my eyes.

Today, I am honored to welcome Scott Klopfenstein to the show.
