The Skamonics play a unique and floor-filling mix of authentic 60s jazzy ska, two-tone and completely unexpected covers.
A driving rhythm section provides a firm foundation for three blazing horns and a top female vocalist.
We play a wide mix of gigs, but specialise in weddings and functions and can provide our own PA and DJ to cover all your music needs. All of Hertfordshire is well within our travelling range, and we are happy to play gigs, weddings and festivals in Watford, Stevenage, Welyn Hatfield, Bishop’s Stortford, and Hitchen. We are a great Herts wedding band.
Ska appeals to a wide age-range, without becoming dull and inoffensive. It’s ideal for any event where there will be a mix of people – the Skamonics themselves have members in their 20s, 30s, 40s and 50s. And we’re not a tribute band – stuck copying what others have done before. Instead we have a wide range of material that we can adopt for any audience that wants to dance.
Ska evergreen “I’m in the Mood For Love” is a classic first song for any wedding.
Everyone remembers the Madness and Specials tunes from the two-tone era. We add a jazzy twist with our tight horn section.
Our covers of tunes as diverse as Tainted Love, Tears for Fears’ Enola Gay and Nina’s 99 Red Ballons extend our appeal further.
And of course we play old and new ska classics too. From My Boy Lollipop , dating from ska’s 60s birth to the up-to-date Paolo Nutini’s Ten out of Ten.
