Since the birth in 1998, a band with a complicated name and infective music, “Red Five Point Star” played close to 400 shows and thus the stage is definitely their best incarnation. Back then a teenage punk rock trio began to mix a variety of sounds like reggae, ska, swing, surf and rockabilly elements into a solid punk rock basics. This lay the foundation for the original RFPS sound that grew to now leading Slovenian 6-pack ska band. After the release of their long-awaited first album 'In Color' in 2005 Red Five Point Star started to break boundaries by not staying comfortable in their own country but venture out into the whole wide world. Stepping out of the norm, RFPS proved that as a live band, they have become world class. Red Five Point Star played in most of the European countries and crowned the tours by a very successful South African tour in February 2009.

This was followed up by an even bigger South African tour in February and March 2010 and a massive European tour supporting the American ska legends The Toasters in April and May 2010. The successful tour was crowned by a signature with one of the world's largest ska label Megalith Records, which will release Red Five Point Star's 3rd studio album in spring 2011. Red Five Point Star will tour USA in fall 2011. They sold out the first edition of 'In Color' and followed it by the second full lenght 'Stepping Out', released at the end of 2007. Both albums were released on the leading Slovenian independent label KAPA Records.

Kapa Records is runned by the most influential Slovenian underground venue Gala Hala and is based in renowned cultural center Metelkova City. After releasing the insanely popular studio albums, Red Five Point Star wanted to capture more of the live energy of which the audience craved for. As result they recorded 4 shows live in Ljubljana during 2009 which was released on a live CD (KAPA Records 2010). The live album serves as an introduction to the forthcoming 3rd studio album. Red Five Point Star established themselves mostly through their intense live shows, which are the outcome of constant live performing on numerous club shows and biggest festivals in the region.

New York Ska-Jazz Ensemble, The Toasters, Fishbone, Ozomatli and Royal Crown Revue are just a few names Red Five Point Star shared stage with in their odissey.
