The brainchild of Madness saxophonist Mr. Lee 'Kix' Thompson, Lee Thompson's Ska Orchestra were formed in the back streets of Hackney, in the early months of 2011. They came together from different parts of North, East, South and West London, with their common denominator being music, and in particular those good old Ska and Reggae rhythms that burst out of Jamaica in the mid to late 1960s.
As well as his usual saxophone duties, Thompson takes on the lead vocals in a hand-picked line up that features fellow Madness original Mark 'Bedders' Bedford on bass.
