Some Ska Band: In October, 2011, in the basement of a local ad agency, five scrappy musicians formed a band with one simple dream: to pull off the biggest diamond heist the world had ever seen. They also discovered that they shared a love of ska, that greatest of all music genres. From the earliest works of the originators like Theo. Beckford, Desmond Deckker and The Skatalites, through the 2Tone era of The Specials, Madness and The English Beat, to 3rd wave and contemporary powerhouses like Rancid, The Toasters and The New Town Kings, Some Ska Band has it covered. Plus, they have a growing pile of originals that have hit written all over them. All told, the band spans 5 decades and two time zones, bringing a loose, laid-back, “what’s-the-worst-that-can-happen?” party attitude to every show.
