The Skatalites are celebrating their 48th year as a band with a new single, a new album and a tour in the United States and Canada. A lot of the band members have passed away but that doesn’t mean the band is done with! Allstonians plus Riki Rocksteady & The Arraignments have been confirmed as openers for their show on February 15th at TT The Bear’s in Cambridge, MA. Subatomic Sound system, Top Shotta Band will be opening for their show at Brooklyn Bowl on Feb 18th.
The Skatalites have lead the world on a journey like no other and have traveled more roads than most artists ever will. 2012 marks their 48th(!) year and, while some of the band’s founding members have passed onto the great stage in the sky, they continue to bring the spirit, style, and music of Jamaica to people around the world. This year promises a revitalization of the band with a new tour, a new single, a new album and a determination to pave a new path into parts unknown – all roads lead to The Skatalites.
The Skatalites kick off the year with a round of dates in February around the Northeast including stops in Massachusetts, Maine, New York and Vermont. This is just the primer for a larger world tour touching various continents throughout the year.
