Jazzy ska from London

Booking the Skamonics

The Skamonics are available for gigs and functions within reasonable distance of London, and festivals throughout the country. We are a seven piece band so the more notice the better, as that gives more time to juggle diaries.

We have our own PA that is suitable for functions, weddings and smaller gigs. But we do not provide lighting.

If you are interested in booking us or want to make contact you can email us at:


or use the form below to make an inquiry – or simply ask a question.

There are more details of our technical requirements (for both promoters and wedding/function clients), logos and hi-res pictures available at our promoters page

Our gigs

We have played weddings, festivals, parties and country house parties:

A wedding

“A big thank you to you and all the band. We all loved it so much. It’s the coolest, most age and clique smashing sound I have ever heard. We had a diverse mix at the wedding and everyone loved it!!”

A wedding

“Thank you very very very much to the Skamonics for making our wedding reception so special. The band were absolutely brilliant and we had a fantastic time. If anyone ever asks to speak to a client please do not hesitate to put them in touch with us. “

A wedding

“You were brilliant. Thank you so much. You really made the party and thank you for playing so late.”

A birthday party

“Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your set on Saturday: we all loved the Skamonics and, as you saw, you certainly had the
punters on their feet for the whole evening.”

A birthday party

“a big thanks to all the band, everyone said how great you were and asked me where I found you (google and myspace) … Thanks for making my 40th one to remember”

A Ball
