About the Artist

For nearly six decades, The Skatalites have captivated audiences worldwide with their musical talents. Founded in 1964, they pioneered the Jamaican popular music genre of Ska, which has since grown to encompass various sub-genres including Rocksteady, Reggae, 2tone, Third Wave, Ska-Jazz, Ska-Punk, Ragga, and Dub. With a rich repertoire of instrumentals and an impressive history as the studio backing band for many Jamaican vocalists in the early to mid-60s, including Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Toots and The Maytals, Ken Boothe, Stranger Cole, and Alton Ellis, The Skatalites have paved the way for countless bands that play any derivative of ska or reggae music, such as The Specials, The Police, Hepcat, No Doubt, Sublime, and Slightly Stoopid. From packed festivals of 500,000 people to intimate clubs of 50, The Skatalites continue to wow audiences of all sizes and will celebrate their 60th anniversary in 2024. We hope that you will join us in acknowledging The Skatalites as Jamaica’s Greatest Band!
