For 7 years now, Pimpbot has been blaring infectious tunes out of Honolulu's dirty south... Waikiki. Pimpbot balances their audiences between Hawaii's booming tourist industry, and it's thriving undeground music scene. In a world of cover bands, they have always stayed true to their original material, carrying humorous stories from everyday life - from having a breakfast after a one night stand to driving with an empty gas tank. The members of Pimpbot are alumni of the University of Hawaii and Berklee College of Music.
Homegrown but well traveled, the band blends their acquired influences of reggae, dance rock, hard-core and rocksteady into their signature brand of ska/punk. Their sound has been quoted by the Honolulu Star-Bulletin as "a tribute to the flexibility and open minds of the members." Pimpbot has shared the stage with many celebrated groups such as Less Than Jake, The Toasters, General Public featuring Dave Wakeling, The Aquabats, Save Ferris, Buck-O-Nine, Go Jimmy Go, The Aggrolites, The Skeletones, and the One Man Ska Band-Chris Murray.
After receiving local award nominations and play on ska podcasts from all over the world, Pimpbot presses on with the release of their upcoming 2nd full-length release, "Admit One," released in Spring 2008. Songs from the album have already received airplay on Clear Channel's STAR 101.9 and the release has been followed by a supporting Canadian tour.
