Jazzy ska from London

Newhaven – our first gig for 18 months! | The Skamonics - London ska band


Aug 1, 2021 gig, setlist Comments are off

Yesterday we got to play for the first time in 18 months at a delightful food and drink festival in Newhaven in Sussex. Here’s a couple of soundcheck photos.

Two years ago we played just up the road at a festival in Seaford. It was good to be back – and really good to be gigging again.

The weather forecast was dodgy, but we played in bright sunshine. We had to drive through a storm on the way but the site was rain free at least until we left. Given the amount of gin on sale and consumed it would perhaps be inaccurate to say that it was a dry day.

This is what we played. We had to cut the second set a bit short as there was a curfew on the gig.
