about skazz

“This six piece are the embodiment of the ska movement starting out as a swing and jazz outfit and converting in early 2007 to pure ska vibes. In keeping with their jazz roots, Skazz have chosen the original Jamaican scene Ska of the 1960’s – when Caribbean mento and calypso first met American jazz and rhythm and blues.

Fans of the 2 Tone sound of the late 1970’s will feel at home on the dance floor with the added bonus of an education in pre-reggae/rocksteady tempos and cross rhythms.

Having already shared stages with the likes of The Skatalites, Prince Buster, The Pioneers, Syramip, Dennis Alcapone, Winston Francis and Delroy Williams, this promises to be a very special event.”

“Absol-fuckin-lutely brilliant JAMAICAN SKA, SKINHEAD REGGAE AND ROCKSTEADY, this band are the top banana for dancing and shaking your thang! A fantastic brass section leads the way with tenor sax and trumpet ably backed by a tight rhythm section and skanking guitar riffs that will have to jiving away as though you were on the beach in trenchtown, red stripe in one hand, a lovely smoke of collie in the other, the sun shining down as the waves lap up against the golden sands under your dancin’ feet! Yeah, too right!!

I had this band play at MANTUA FESTIVAL last year, they were the only band that had a crowd dancing in the mud and rain, such is the power of their music you will not be able to stand still, let alone sit down and finish that G&T. Take it from me, this is going to be one of the gigs of the year.”
