Never miss another 'The Lee Thompson Ska Orchestra' show

This event takes place at Band On The Wall, which has achieved Gold Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
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. 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.
The Orchestra 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.
Debut album 'The Benevolence of Sister Mary Ignatius' released in 2013 was well received and led to major Radio and TV appearances including Later with Jools Holland and Glastonbury Live in 2014.
The Ska Orchestra's eagerly awaited 2nd album is due for release in 2016.
