Brothers and sisters! Skamel are returning to the stage for the first time this year! Come and join us for a dance at their spiritual home, Matt & Phred's, in Manchester!
The band will play a mixture of original tunes taken from their two albums (Skamel and C'est Un Safari) and Ska and Reggae classics from the past 60 years. You'll hear well-known tunes ranging from the early Ska of the Skatalites, through the Paragons, Gregory Isaacs and Horace Andy, to the Two-Tone Ska of The Specials - expect a night of high-energy skanking!
“They play with energy and skill and easily brought the crowd along for the ride. These guys are a seriously tight band that I can’t recommend enough.” - Now Then Magazine
“What a sound these guys get! The trumpet, trombone, tenor front-line could grace a Jazz Messengers line-up.” - Be-Bop Spoken Here
“Frenetic young band effortlessly delivering a punchy sound full of grooves and rhythms.” - Manchester Jazz Festival
“I highly recommend checking them out for a slice of unadulterated merriment.” - Shelley Hanvey, E-Festivals
