Nightboat To Skaville play all the 70s & 80s ska hits you'd expect, as well as a few rock 'n' roll, soul and disco and rock & pop hits for good measure, and all delivered with fun, banter and audience participation to ensure the dancefloor is 'skanking' all night.

The band members each average at least 15 years performance experience & have engaged in tours around various areas of the world including the Alps, The Caribbean, Dubai, America and Mainland Europe.

These guys are a powerhouse of experience! They've done it all – from theatre gigs to classical tunes, pop hits to studio recordings, even writing for TV and dance. They've rocked the stage at huge festivals like Glastonbury and The Big Chill.

They really made the party go with a bang, we had a really great night, everyone thought they were brilliant Kate & Gordon, Birthday Party

When they're not jamming in the band, these guys are spreading their musical love all over the place! Teaching and playing everything from classical to samba, salsa to traditional African beats, and even diving into the electrifying world of dance and live dub-reggae.

These Nightboat to Skaville stars are no strangers to epic stages! From wowing crowds at The Royal Albert Hall to jamming at Madison Square Garden in New York, and even bringing their tunes to the snowy slopes of Courchevel in France.
