Skankstas have been together for five years.
The band have built up a name for entertaining, and involving audiences in their shows in clubs, pubs and festivals across London and the South East.
Recent gigs at Proud Camden, The Bedford in Balham and Folkestone Ska Festival have cemented their reputation as a great live act featuring top quality musicians.
As such, Easyskanking aim to put a smile on your face and a swing in your step!
A typical set includes songs ranging from Desmond Dekker's 'Israelites', through 'Monkey Man', via a reggae rendition of 'Walking in the Air' and over to a rather surreal delivery of Katy Perry's 'I Kissed a Girl'.
If you can hum it, we'll skank it!
A seven piece band consisting of drums, bass, guitars, keyboards, saxophone, percussion and three vocalists.
As above, plus a brass section. Usually trombone and trumpet.
We have a very good quality 2kw PA with an extra 1500 watts of foldback/monitors.
We also have a portable lighting rig.
South East based and will travel to these areas: South East, South West, Midlands, North East, North West, Wales.
The Bedford Pub (Balham), Vann Fest, Folkestone Ska Festival, Proud Camden, Sound Lounge, private parties.
‘The locals and I thoroughly enjoy EasySkanking everytime they play here. The music and atmosphere they bring each time turns them into the most whimsical snake charmers. 10/10 would hire again!’
The Manor Pub, London, Sw17
We are happy to play tunes chosen by clients in a ska/reggae style.
We play unexpected tunes such as 'I Kissed a Girl', 'The Model' and 'Volare', and skank them up.
We involve audiences in our show, inviting them to play percussion etc.
