“The greatest easy listening ska band in the world!”  Lee Scratch Perry


Easyskanking play an eclectic mix of foot tapping ska tunes (from the 1960/70s) and well known classics plundered from the easy listening vaults and rendered danceable in a ska/rocksteady/reggae style. 

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!
