Ska Jeff’s triumphant return to SKA!!
The title says it all – come skank/dance the night away with THE BEATDOWN (mtl) THE SENTRIES (ott) plus DOUBLE D SOUNDSYSTEM spinning all ska, rocksteady, and reggae vinyl!


"They call it Northern Reggae…A one-hundred proof blend of raspy rocksteady, sizzling soul, surf swagger and punkrock pedigree shaken (not stirred) with a double shot of the roughest roots reggae your ears have ever tasted. Pour it into a highball glass over some ice-cold lyrics and you’ve got The Beatdown. Formed in the mean, cold streets of Montreal, The Beatdown rose from the ashes of the late, great One Night Band after their untimely demise in the winter of 2009. Although only together for 3 short years, this intrepid four-piece gang of hoodlums have played more than 300 shows in 15 countries. This is the real thing kids. Tough as nails, catchy as hell and good to go."


"Veterans of the Ottawa ska scene return with an 8 piece dance assault of the grooviest, soulful and catchiest ska jams to date. Think traditional Jamaican ska. Think classic skinhead reggae. Think soulful rocksteady. Think the UK 2tone era. All thrown in a blender coming out with upbeat, energetic, stomping, mighty ska. Not a band to miss."

+ DOUBLE D SOUNDSYSTEM spinning all ska, rocksteady, and reggae vinyl! And all the pinball and arcade games you can handle!!
