THE SKATALITES with guests The Valuables, Jonny & Corey of East Van Soul Club
This 4:20 make sure you head down to the Rickshaw for an awesome night of Ska Music featuring Jamaican pioneers, The Skatalites!
The Skatalites played a major part in popularizing ska music in the 1960s playing with the likes of Bob Marley, Toots & the Maytals & Jimmy Cliff. Consisting of some of the best musicians in Jamaica, they played together initially between 1963 and 1965 but recorded many of their best known songs in the period including "Guns of Navarone" as well as playing on records by Prince Buster and many other Jamaican artists who recorded during the period. They reformed in 1986 and have played together ever since.
Reigning from Vancouver BC, The Valuables gather influences from the roots music of Jamaica and late sixties soul of the United States. The classic sounds, the retro tones, and the vintage look of the Valuables are tearing up dance floors all over the Pacific Northwest.
