Ten years after – a repeat booking

We had a lovely booking inquiry a few months ago:

The Skamonics played at our wedding, just under 10 years ago, and were one of the highlights of the day! We were wondering whether you might be free to play at our 10 year wedding anniversary party, which is on 24 November this year.

And so last night we made our way to the Hackney Coffee Company to play two sets. This was our first gig for some time and we had a blast. Remi joined us on guitar as special guest for his first gig with us, and having played in a ska band in Poland for ten years he was a natural fit.

We took a rushed picture at the sound check (before we had changed) and this is what we played:

  • Chinatown
  • Guns of Navarone
  • Latin Goes Ska
  • The Tide is High
  • I’m in the Mood for Love
  • My Baby Just Cares for Me
  • Work Song
  • Alley Cat Ska
  • Mambo Number 5
  • Enola Gay
  • Mad World
  • London Calling
  • Monkey Man
  • Red Red Wine
  • One Step Beyond
  • Mountain King
  • Come Dancing
  • Simmer Down
  • Pata Pata
  • 10 Out Of 10
  • 99 Red Balloons
  • Tainted Love
  • Rudy A Message To You
  • Baggy Trousers
  • My Boy Lollipop
  • Night Boat To Cairo
  • Gangsters

A Southgate sixtieth

We had a great time playing a sixtieth birthday party in Southgate last night.

It was a bit special as the party was celebrating the birthday of Chris’s mum – so we put him centre stage.

We got to play a full two sets, and as a special request, we slotted in some Stevie Wonder tunes – only one of which has any relation to the ska, rocksteady and early reggae that we play, so we made Chris play the tricky bits.

We don’t have any photos, but this is what we played.

 

  • Chinatown
  • Guns Of Navarone
  • Latin Goes Ska
  • Tide Is High
  • Mood For Love
  • You Can Get It
  • Harder They Come
  • Man In The Street
  • Mambo Number 5
  • Enola Gay
  • Price Tag
  • Red Red Wine
  • I Wish
  • Sir Duke
  • Master Blaster
  • Simmer Down
  • Pata Pata
  • Tainted Love
  • Rudy A Message To You
  • My Boy Lollipop
  • Monkey Man
  • Baggy Trousers
  • Night Boat To Cairo
  • Baggy Trousers
  • Gangsters

A party gig

We played a private party gig on Saturday – in fact a significant birthday for our bass player Nigel.

We managed to video and record the gig, so after we have had the chance to do some mixing and editing, we should have some reasonably good quality live video of the band.

This is what we played.
