8pm - 4am
Doors Open 8pm - Band on stage 10pm.
Formed from the desire to return to the classic sounds of our youth, Ska Face contain ten individual members with a combined age of over 450 years between them. Old enough to know better but young and foolish enough to attempt to re-write the rule book and enjoy music with the passion and honesty that it was designed for. An antidote to the mass mediocrity that is played across the country in a world dominated by media hype.
Ska Face keep it real and enjoy every minute with an infectious stage show of power, energy and damn good tunes that you just have to dance to. Thereis no better remedy to a stressful week than a few cheeky drinks and dancing like a loon... and that is just the band!
Avoid disappointment and beware of cheap imitations, if you want authentic Ska and 2 Tone, then you would be hard pressed to beat the Ska Face experience...
Fronted by the enigmatic Tony Montana and featuring a phenomenal four-piece brass section, Ska Face pack a punch from the first note. With a rhythm section as tight as drummer Alberto’s wallet and lead licks that compliment the music perfectly, the legendary Rico Rodriguez praised the ‘heavy riddim section’ when first performing with the guys back in 2011. Specials guitarist Roddy Radiation has accompanied the boys on stage regularly since the same year and 2 Tone Records founder member and former Special Jerry Dammers was highly impressed with the energy and authenticity of the Ska Face performance when he joined them for a gig in June 2013. In recent years, the band has evolved another level, with support slots for From The Jam, The Selecter, Bad Manners and The English Beat.
Revitalising the Ska and 2 Tone classics of The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The Beat and Bad Manners plus many others from the late 70s and early 80s, Ska Face sparked a 2 Tone revival across the north of England.
Plus real record DJ's 'The Vinyl Countdown' Jimmy Mush & Jon DaFox Riley spinning classic tunes.
Over 18's only. Please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
