Ska & Soul Night
Featuring The SkaSouls and DJ Scooter Jay
Currently receiving widespread praise and critical acclaim wherever they perform, six-piece, West London based band, The SkaSouls have encompassed, through hard work and desire, a unique yet instantly recognisable Ska sound.
Borrowing styles and songs from the past greats, they have managed to rekindle the sweat and passion so necessary for real live performance, and have established an outstanding reputation and an impressive following.
Drawing on many years of experience playing with acts nationally and globally, they have merged their skills and abilities in order to create something new and extraordinary. Using strong vocals and a powerful brass section as the cream on top of a rock solid, hard- hitting rhythm section, The SkaSouls have rediscovered the formula to ignite the music scene once again; with immense levels of energy in their performances, leaving onlookers amazed by the band's on-stage presence.
No sampled sounds here! The original sounds and mixes from the Jamaican ska and rocksteady of the 60s and 70s (Toots & The Maytals, Desmond Dekker, Justin Hinds, Symarip etc) are perfectly merged with the urban ska standards of the late 70s and early 80s (Specials, Bad Manners, Madness etc) and contemporary sounds of the likes of Rancid and Paolo Nutini, with a few of the SkaSouls' own songs included for good measure - not to be missed.
The band will be joined in the Fuelers by veteran Ska & Soul DJ 'Scooter Jay'. Jay has performed at all the major Scooter Rallies and knows how to keep a dancefloor busy with Classic Soul and Motown, Northern Soul and Ska anthems.
