Welcome to our musical BLONDIE and SKA adventure. Our aim is to keep faithfully, creating the sounds we love in pubs and clubs across the UK.
Nothing is as exciting as the thumping sound of Ska; as warming as the mellow rhythm of Reggae; or as thrilling as the energy of MOD. Add the voice of Blondie and our vision is complete.
Music is a way of life, it's the banter and comradery, the sound checks, the performances and the meeting up with new friends and enjoying the exhilarating after-show-glow.
We aim to bring to you the passion of Ranking Roger, Selector, Madness, Bad Manners, The Jam, UB40, Blondie and so much more.
