AN EVENING OF SKA AND SKANKING WITH BANDS
Sat 3rd of Feb 2024
Time: 7:30 pm
The Reggaskas are an eight-piece female-fronted band, with a strong rhythm section accompanied by a lively horn section. Performing unique original songs and a few covers with an energetic reggae/ska vibe, which guarantees to get the crowd dancing.
Founded in 2014, The Reggaskas first single ‘Who’s the Daddy’ went down a storm. Releasing their first album called ‘Long way home’ in 2016, which has been played across local and national radio stations. Playing live at many festivals, weddings, and pubs over the years, this is a band not to be missed. Creating that unique sound has to be the bond between the band-members who share the same passion for the music and the creative spark to make something unique.
The band’s line-up consists of two lead vocals and front-girls Lizy Eames and Rozie Bond. On horns, we have Mike Bourne on Saxophone, and Steve (Fester) Bourne on Trumpet. The unmistakable rhythm section we have Ken Taylor on the keyboard, Chris Reeves playing lead guitar, Dave Nicholson on Bass, and Harry Colridge on drums. With a new album in progress, which I’m sure will bring you that unique Reggaskas sound which they create live on stage.

Purveyors of SKA…
The EMBEZZLERS are a 6 piece, 100% Live, SKA band based in Exeter, Devon.
Playing the best in SKA and 2TONE from Desmond Dekker, Toots and Jimmy Cliff to The Specials, The Selecter, Madness and The Beat etc. Oh… and there’s even a tiny little bit of The Clash thrown in for good measure!
Going back to the late 70s and early 80s the sounds of the likes of Madness, The Selector and The Specials were floating around on the airwaves, uplifting the spirits… and that music still does that to this day because SKA and 2TONE was, and still is, a movement that unites people. All sorts of folk turn out for EMBEZZLER Shows and no matter who they are and where they are from, they are all there for the same thing – The Music (oh… and maybe a few beers too!!!) So whatever your roots… Come join the extended family!
Comprising of a bunch of highly experienced and extremely dedicated musicians , The Embezzlers have every base covered with a top notch horn section, killer keys, perfect off beat strings, crazy tight drums and all fronted by ‘Murph’… Front Man with more energy than a Gallon of Red Bull! If you can keep up with him then you are a true ‘Bezzler’!!
EMBEZZLERS gigs are an experience not to be missed. HIGH ENERGY, HIGH SPIRITS, LOTS OF SINGING and most definitly LOTS of SKANKING going on. Crowd participation is by no means compulsory of course, but you wont be able to help yourself tapping your foot, let alone coming right down the front and getting fully involved!!
