Book with confidence! After events, we ask our clients what they thought of our acts. We publish what they say here, so you can read genuine, unbiased feedback before booking.

“I have been a huge fan of Ska and 2tone for 35 years. I have seen hundreds of bands but never have I seen a band that had me gob–smacked the way you did. The entire performance from start to finish was amazingly faultless. Not only that but the choice of songs and the style in which you delivered the entire show was first class. Thank you for showing the people of today what Ska is really like.”

George, Private event at Butlins Madness Weekender, September 2019

“Love this band Ska City! Good work, keep it up!”

Lyndal Golding, The Specials, 2018

“Brilliant night – one of the best. Bringing back so many memories. I’ve never danced so much!”

Marcia, Public event, April 2019

“We enjoyed every second that you played and our guests have not stopped talking about, ‘The amazing band at Noel and Jade’s wedding!’… Our friends have asked for your contact details as a reference for future parties! We were totally blown away by the sets that you played for us and will forever be thankful for the truly amazing entertainment you allowed us all to experience. We have never danced so much in our lives! From the very bottom of our hearts, thank you!”
