SKABOX

"Top quality Ska, Dancehall and Reggae band for hire from West Yorkshire "

About the Band:

Skabox take the party to another level with their raucous brand of energy-fuelled classic ska and punk anthems. The incredible eight-piece band take popular classics from all genres and mould them into a high-octane cocktail of steady off-beat rhythms, bold horn lines and fantastic vocal performances.

Once you’ve heard Skabox perform, you won’t be able to contain your skankin’ moves from breaking out. Crafting Reggae, Rocksteady, 2 Tone and Dancehall versions of artists like Stevie Wonder, David Bowie, Madness and Bruno Mars – you can fully expect to hear wall to wall hits all night long. Fun is the name of the game with these guys and they don’t disappoint!

Skabox regularly perform at Wedding, Corporate events and festivals alike – so whatever the occasion, expect them to bring their A-game. Along with 8-piece band, Skabox also offer a 4-piece acoustic lineup for smaller venues and budgets. In either format, expect to book a band with stacks of energy, enthusiasm and professionalism. Take a listen to their demos and watch their videos to get a better flavour on what you could have at your event!
