10 Piece Old-Skool Jamaican Ska Band
Interskalactic are a brand new Ska band in this sector of the Universe. Playing traditional, old school, first wave, big band Jamaican Ska. The likes of which has not been explored before in Dublin!
Featuring a top quality line up of space cadets, having served aboard galaxy class starships such as, “The Candidates”, “Indica”, “Attention BeBe”, “East Coast Jazz Band”, “Shouting At Planes” and “Cops & Robbers”.
This is not Two Tone Ska, it’s not Reggae or Rocksteady, it is Ska, as it was first created in the “Big Bang” of Jamaican Independence in 1962.
It’s all about that party feeling, with the freedom of breaking orbit & going intergalactic with what was then, a new Music called SKA! Presenting booster rocket rumbles from the likes of “The Skatalites” & “Byron Lee & The Dragonaires”, to warp driven escapades by “Prince Buster”, “The Blues Busters” & “Toots & The Maytals”, Interskalactic are boldly going were no Ska band has gone before!
