Given that they fell collectively in DC in 1994, the Instigators have already been churning out a potent combination of ska, rock and roll and golf swing. After honing their abilities for quite some time, including performing many sold-out displays in DC, touring with just about any main ska performer and playing for the Capitol yard, they released their debut complete lentgh recording, Happy Hour, in 1999. The music group, which boasted vocalist Mike Frank, guitarist Dan Golden, bassist Brad Saaks, guitarist Fritz Blanchette, drummer Pat Flynn, trumpeter Chris Newman, saxophonist Gavin Benke and trombonist Jonathan Fallin — a typically large ska ensemble — whipped up excitement for their 1st full-length by touring thoroughly over the U.S. in 1998 and 1999.
