The Skatalites | Basement Roots
The Skatalites Band are Jamaica's premier Ska band since 1964 who backed artists like Bob Marley, Toots and The Maytals, Alton Ellis, Ken Boothe and most of the singers of the day. Their infectious brand of bluesy, jazzy Ska spread like wildfire around the island and spawned the entire genres of Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, Dub,Two-Tone,and 3rd Wave Ska. The tiny island of Jamaica has probably had more effect on music globally than any other country or place in the world, and The Skatalites were the pioneers of the music that originally caused this.
Local Reggae ambassadors Basement Roots gonna open the night with their heavy weight 70ies Roots and Dub, mixed with some sweet Rocksteady and some Ska songs as well. They'll present the new songs of their upcoming album!
