Jazzy ska from London

The Skamonics play Hackney | The Skamonics - London ska band


Nov 25, 2018 setlist, wedding , , Comments are off

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:
