Interskalactic know how to keep a dance floor busy.
Adding their modern big band style to first-wave, old-school Jamaican ska, Interskalactic have brought this infectious music that first exploded worldwide with celebrations of Jamaican independence in the ‘60s back into the live music scene of today!
Their upbeat set features not just their own original music – big band ska with that old-school Jamaican flavour, but also covers from classic ska artists including Prince Buster, The Skatalites and Byron Lee & the Dragonaires as well as their own ska-ified versions of popular hits from the last few decades.
With an incredible few years of live shows behind them, a critically acclaimed debut EP released March 2017, and plans to record their first album in the pipeline, this band are set to stride towards this next big milestone in 2018 and beyond.
Stellar live performances since the band’s formation in 2013 include:
Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Cork Jazz, Sea Sessions Festivals
Opening for Madness’ M.A.D.H.E.A.D. Tour in the 3 Arena Dublin and Odyssey Arena Belfast
Performances in prestigious venues Vicar Street and Whelan’s and at countless festivals, events, parties and venues all over the country.
RTE’s The Late Late Show
Fête de la Musique 2017, Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris
