The band bring their infectious blend of Ska & Punk to a venue near you in March & April, when they’re tour support for the legendary US Ska Punkers Less Than Jake.

Every so often a country, city or a scene throws up a couple of acts, that has the A&R men scrambling for their company credit cards, an A-Z (usually a motoring atlas that features places outside of London) and a glint in their eye. In the past it’s been Wales, Seattle, New York, Glasgow, Bristol, …

If you asked the average music fan what Fatboy Slim, JLS, Rick Astley, Manic Street Preachers and Liam Gallagher have in common, it’s unlikely that their answer would be that they’ve all played free concerts for NHS staff!
