The VRA is a peoples award. Fans will decide the outcome. Voting is the only way to guarantee that your favorite band wins. “Stuck On A Name is up against some big names in the Virginia Reggae scene and could use your support,” said band member Joe Gaskins.

Stuck On A Name’s new EP can be streamed at their Bandcamp site. The band plays originals and covers some classic favorites sometimes with a reggae/ska twist.
Virginia Reggae hosts two reggae festivals a year in Hampton—the Buckroe Beach Reggae Festival in the summer and Hampton Reggae Fest (at the Hampton Coliseum) in the winter.
