Bio

The Skatalites are the premier ska band from Jamaica. Officially formed in 1964 after playing in studios together all over Kingston, these musicians came together to perform live shows all over the island. In addition to the live shows, these musicians were the backing band for numerous prominent vocalists, including Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff, and Toots and The Maytals, to name just a few. They are the roots to the tree whose branches include rock steady, reggae, rap, dub, punk, two-tone, 3rd wave, ska-jazz, ska-core, and ragga. Now in its 47th anniversary, the band continues to please crowds while traveling the globe year after year.
