Formed in 1996, Slow Children at Play (SCAP) have evolved in to a widely recognized, respected and requested band. Their innovative brand of music has been described as Blink 182 meets Reel Big Fish and a jam band. Their energy and perserverence has resulted in two independently released studio albums, one live album and a number of spots on nationally distributed compilations.
In early 2000, SCAP were flown to Illinois courtesy of College Television Network (CTN) and Mentos (Van Melle Corporation) to open for Pink (Arista/La Face) and Stroke 9 (Cherry Entertainment/Universal).
Following this, SCAP were invited to play at the Frederick Brown Jr. Amphitheater, which has hosted the likes of B.B. King, Alabama, Third Day and Drivin' n Cryin'. At the Amphitheater, they opened for Helen Reddy. This appearance paved the way for SCAP's invitation to play with the Swingin' Medallions.
Meanwhile, SCAP were beginning a foray into cyberspace. Since then, they have grown on the Internet to become internationally recognized. With four domain names, free E-Mail accounts and tons of content, SCAP transfers more than a gigabyte of data each month.
Their presence on the Internet has also led to a number of awards, among which are mPulse.com awards for top song (for 4 songs) and top band. In addition, SCAP most recently won the Southern Local Area Bands 2000 People's Choice Award. Consequently, SCAP has been shipping merchandise to England and Japan as well as all over the United States.
MTV recently licensed and used SCAP's music in multiple episodes of their popular teen soap opera Undressed.
Simultaneously, SCAP were being added to FM radio stations and Internet radio stations throughout the world (Currently more than 65 stations have SCAP in their rotatione. Notably, Radio Disney has played SCAP and WUOG 90.5 in Athens, Georgia produced a live broadcast of SCAP.
Other media affiliates that SCAP have worked with include Georgia State University's GSTV; SweptAway TV in Boca Raton, Florida; 11 Alive News, an NBC affiliate and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Island Records gave SCAP consistant high marks for their musicianship on their latest album describing SCAP's style as "very good music." The Degenerate Press, known for it's no nonsense and sometimes-harsh reviews, mentions the "smooth, well produced ska with great horns and decent guitar work." The Global Muse, known throughout the Indie scene, goes further into detail by saying that SCAP have "a horn section that smokes and a rhythm section that drives it home ... [their] music is very hooky and contains just the right amount of upbeat posture that makes every song an experience."
The current line-up is Christian Jolly on guitar and vocals, Eric Henson on percussion, Chris Haugh on trumpet, Mike Coloney on trumpet, Ryan Haylock on tenor sax and Graham Ingram on bass.
