Jazzy ska from its vintage 60s roots, 2-tone and unexpected covers

skams36x36The Skamonics are rooted in the ska, rocksteady and early reggae of 1960s Jamaica. Together since 2004, they have an extensive repertoire that takes in authentic 60s classics, songs from the swing era and evergreen covers given a ska treatment for the very first time.

skams36x36Top jazz horn players, strong vocals and a driving rhythm section give the Skamonics a distinctly different take on songs known and loved by all ages.

skams36x36From West End clubs to East London pubs, vintage festival stages to weddings and vintage days the Skamonics have filled dance floors and won repeat bookings – even taking their authentic vintage sounds to the Jamaican High Commission.
