This five piece are the embodiment of the ska movement starting out as a swing and jazz outfit and converting in early 2007 to pure ska vibes.In keeping with their jazz roots, Skazz have chosen the original Jamaican scene Ska of the 1960s – when Caribbean mento and calypso first met American jazz and rhythm and blues. Fans of the 2 Tone sound of the late 1970s will feel at home on the dancefloor with the added bonus of an education in pre-reggae/rocksteady tempos and cross rhythms.
Having already shared stages with the likes of The Skatalites, Prince Buster, The Pioneers, Syramip, Dennis Alcapone, Winston Francis and Delroy Williams, and with dates this year including the Cork Jazz Festival, Electric Picnic and Waterford Spraoi and Bray Jazz Festival, this promises to be a very special band.
Getting everyone into the skanival mood, Skazz will be skanking the weekend away in style. This lively Clare band have appeared at venues all over Ireland, and with rave reviews everywhere have acquired a huge following. Ska! Ska! Ska! Skandalous Skazz will be joined by a host of musicians to have you all moonstompin.
