profile

THE SKATONICS came crashing onto the scene in 2007, and since then have performed to the ever growing enthusiastic Ska followers at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe.

Over the years the band have played some prestigious venues and festivals in the UK and across Europe, county showgrounds, racecourses, Santa Pod raceway, The Dublin Castle and The Hope & Anchor, London (iconic early venues for both Madness and The Specials) and even a pre-kick off gig at West Ham F.C.

​In June 2017 they headlined the ‘Electro Love’ stage at the Isle of Wight Festival to a crowd of several thousand which impressed the band as their timings clashed with Rod Stewart and George Ezra.

They have backed Suggs recently at a charity event in Whitstable and went on to support the mighty MADNESS at the Kent County Showground and also at the 9th annual House of Fun weekender at Butlins. They have also supported the likes of The Selecter, Bad Manners, Reef, Geno Washington, Neville Staple (The Specials), Bruce Foxtons ‘From the Jam’, The Blockheads, Vapors, Rezillos and many others.

They have also been regulars at large VW events, Dub Aid, numerous scooter rallies, BMF meetings and Folkestone’s annual ‘Skabour’ Festival since it’s started in 2010 when the guys were the very first band on supporting The Beat.

The Skatonics pride themselves on an authentic look and sound.  At any event, you can expect to hear most of the hits from the bands of the 2tone era as well as some older Trojan ska classics and a few ‘others’ the band have given their little ska twist to.

The Skatonics would've blown the roof off, if we had one. Simply awesome

Evening Standard Newspaper

A raucous, rollicking, heavy heavy monster of a gig.
