Jazzy ska from London

A Christmas Party in Streatham | The Skamonics - London ska band


Dec 9, 2019 Comments are off

We were delighted to be asked to play at Dan and Dinah’s Christmas plus birthday party at the back room at the Hideaway in Streatham yesterday.

It’s not a venue that we have played before but it’s a great room with a good stage and fantastic sound system. It is recommended if you are looking for a function room in South London.

We played two hour long sets – which is the longest we have played for quite some time – so we were able to pull out a few that we have not played for a while. We ran out of time so were not able to do our Christmas number – probably a good thing.

This is what we played.
