The Skatoons initially formed in 2008 as a 5-piece band, but, quickly expanded to an 8-piece. The band is made up from ex-members of the Gangsters Of Ska and Alive & Kicking, featuring a 3-piece horn section and the most highly skilled engineers/tech team. Some band members have even been spotted playing in line-ups with Bad Manners, The Toasters, Penetration & The Clash City Rockers to name but a few. Doing covers from the likes of Bad Manners, Madness, The Maytals, UB40, Dave & Ansel Colins, The Specials, The Toasters, The Beat, The Piranhas & many more, Ska'd up with a bit of a twist.
The Skatoons tour dates listed on Ents24.com since Feb 2016.
