Meet the Band
The Flip Flop Republic
The Florida Reggae and Tropical Rock Band “The Flip Flop Republic” started in 2010 as the Flip Flop Boys. The Flip Flop Boys were the two founding members Joe Lowder and Doug Dolan, who just wanted to play music and head south from Tallahassee and get to the beach. They honed their sound and wrote songs playing in Tallahasse and St. George Island (Our beach!) The band evolved when adding Blake (Skinny B) Bosarge on keyboard and reggae influencer Miki Victor on drums from St. Maarten who taught the boys how to play true one drop style reggae.
The band added blistering lead guitarist Brad Foutch and drummer Jake Pepple to the mix and completed the 5 piece high-energy ensemble. Flip Flop Republic takes you away to a place where you can free your toes and free your mind. Each original comes from personal stories and inspiration to live life a little differently. Even if you hear a cover, it is remixed as a Flip Flop original!
Flip Flop Republic is a place for everyone to have a good time, escape and be a part of the fun. There are always tambourines, shakers, bongos and a mic for people to join in and escape everyday life for a few sweet hours!
The band has played at beaches, bars and festivals all over the south and the caribbean. The band has release one album, a few singles and are working on their next album to be released in 2020!
