GLOBAL BEATS PROMOTIONS PRESENTS:
THE LEGENDARY SKATALITES + SUPPORT
Without ska, there is no reggae. Without The Skatalites, there is no ska.
It’s hard to overstate the importance of The Skatalites for the development of Jamaican music. They began life in the early 1960s as a loose group of Jamaica’s top session musicians playing together in various studios and producing hit record after hit record. In those studios, they backed all of the island’s vocal artists, including The Wailing Wailers (featuring Bob Marley, Peter Tosh and Bunny Wailer), Toots and The Maytals, Jackie Opel, Doreen Shaffer, Ken Boothe or Alton Ellis. Their recordings became the soundtrack to and the joyful expression of Jamaica’s independence in 1962.
THIS EVENT WILL TAKE PLACE IN THE KOMEDIA BASEMENT
