"As for the EcoLimes, you should know them by now. They're that rock/reggae/pop band that takes hits from the '60s to now and, well, EcoLimes them. You know, the guys in the day-glo shirts." - John's Big Boone's Farm Birthday Bash

"Get Out magazine"

"It's pretty cool to have three dudes in lime green attire bang out some of your favorite songs from the '60's, '70's, '80's and '90's and rework them into new pop/reggae/classic rock jams of their own. That, my friends is THE ECOLIMES.
The Ecolimes perform tonight at Cortese's Banquet Hall, 1300 Sheridan Rd. Call 262-553-9469 and check for prices, as a lot of other goodies are thrown in to make it a party package." - Music Matters, Get Out magazine

"Paddy Fineran, Scene 262"

"The EcoLimes are a very fun band that takes hits from the '60s to today and Lime-izes them into reggae rock new gems." - Scene 262 magazine

Does anyone in the band play any different instrument(s) outside of the group besides their designated instrument in the band, if so, who plays what?
Yessir. Refer to question 1, or perhaps surf on over to and watch some pleasurable videos.

If you had to put a label on the type of music you play, what might that be?
We are a non-water soluble cover band with a Rock/Reggae twist. We play from the 60’s, 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, today and the future, as well as originals. We have played at every type of venue or event you can think of: festivals, bars, Grandma’s birthday, Brat Stop lunch hours, punk shows, children’s dance academies and residential care facilities.

Who is your favorite band to play with so far?
The Monarchs from Kenosha… as well as David Bowie and our great pal Phil Collins.

Racine, WI is a good 12 to 14 hours drive from Kenosha.

Hypothetically, if you could play with any artist (dead or alive) which one would you want to play a gig with?
Velvikis – Syd Barrett; Earl – Sublime; Algiers – Charles Manson

What's next for The Ecolimes?
Our first full length album is in the works. We will soon be doing some special shows with some newly acquired acoustic gear, drum equipment, and the recent addition of keyboardist Adam Maegaard. With all the shows being played and coming up, we learn an average of 6 new songs per week, mostly requests from our fans. We have a lot of new Ecolimes merchandise including t-shirts, buttons and stickers. With that in mind, we have been working hard on our pantless set. When all is said and done, we will embark on our tour to California, from which we have no intentions of ever returning.
