Description

When talking about Ska Music one group of musicians whose name always comes to the forefront of the conversation are The Skatalites. Formed around 1965 and named originally after the Soviet space satellite which was big news at the time.

With a little help from band member Tommy Mc Cook making a play on the characteristic ‘Ska’sound made by the guitar when following the ‘after beat’ of the music. The band would have a name to go with its distinctive musical style. The time span of The Skatalites career considering their output of hundreds of tunes was a relatively short one of around two years.

We have caught a great set of tunes that the band cut at the legendary Treasure Isle Studios, built out of wood and positioned above Duke Reid’s liquor store, it somehow worked in getting a great sound out of the band. We have cherry picked a selection for your musical pleasure. We hope you enjoy the set!
