SKA FACE - sold out
Saturday, 15 April 2017 - 8:00pm
Formed from the desire to return to the classic sounds of their youth, SKA FACE contains ten individual members with a combined age of over 450 years between them. Old enough to know better but young and foolish enough to attempt to re-write the rule book and enjoy music with the passion and honesty that it was designed for. An antidote to the mass mediocrity that is played across the country in a world dominated by media hype, spin and untruths.
Ska Face keep it real and enjoy every minute with an infectious stage show of power, energy and damn good tunes that you just have to dance to. There is no better remedy to a stressful week than a few cheeky drinks and dancing like a loon... and that is just the band!
Fronted by the enigmatic Tony Montana and featuring a phenomenal four-piece brass section, Ska Face pack a punch from the first note. With a rhythm section as tight as Alberto’s wallet and lead licks that compliment the music perfectly, the legendary Rico Rodriguez praised the ‘heavy riddim section’ when first performing with the guys back in 2011. Specials guitarist Roddy Radiation has accompanied the boys on stage regularly since the same year and 2 Tone Records founder member and former Special Jerry Dammers was highly impressed with the energy and authenticity of the Ska Face performance when he joined them for a gig in June 2013. In 2014, the band has evolved another level, with bookings as support for both The Selecter and Bad Manners.
Revitalising the Ska and 2 Tone classics of The Specials, Madness, The Selecter, The Beat and Bad Manners plus many others from the late 70s and early 80s, Ska Face have sparked a 2 Tone revival across the north of England.
SKA FACE return to The Continental on Saturday 15th April.
Tickets for this event are now SOLD OUT.
