Is this 1991 or 2021? Mustard Plug was a favorite at Club Soda back in the day and the Grand Rapids ska band has just revealed plans for a 2021 tour.

Don't call it a comeback- these guys never really quit. The Grand Rapids-based ska band Mustard Plug brought the horn section, the energy and the attitude to all the best clubs back in the day: Club Soda and the Strutt in Kalamazoo, the Intersection (when it was in Eastown, not downtown Grand Rapids), the illustrious Mac's Bar in East Lansing, Ann Arbor's renowned Blind Pig, and the immortal Detroit clubs St. Andrew's Hall and the Magic Stick.

Since 1991, when they played their very first shows, Mustard Plug has performed nearly 2,000 concerts in 45 of the 50 states. They have played in 19 countries on 5 continents of the world. They have shared stages with top ska bands like the Specials, NOFX, Dropkick Murphys, the English Beat, Umphrey's McGhee, Sublime with Rome, Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Cherry Poppin' Daddies, Reel Big Fish, Reverand Horton Heat, and Bop Harvey. Mustard Plug has also played with more mainstream bands like Maroon 5, Fall Out Boy, Blink 182, Sugar Ray, Eve 6, and even Blues Traveler and Weird Al Yancovich. Mustard Plug was on the Warped Tour twice and on the bill at Riot Fest 2015 in Chicago.
