Vote for us because: Samurai Pizza Cats are a Ska-Punk Reggae-Funk band that screams diversity and creativity, something that very directly describes that of Long Island and it's inhabitants. The members are all equal writers and owners of the music, giving a democratic approach to the world of music writing and performing, giving them a very unique and enjoyable sound. It's for this reason that SPC gets so much attention from a wide variety of age range with most shows typically packed with fans ages 18-70! On top of that, they're all from Long Island! That sounds pretty Long Island to me.
