Brought to you by Voice of the People and The House of TARG! The monthly Ska and Reggae Night featuring DJs Longshot, Snappy & guests with live bands playing the best Ska, Reggae and Rocksteady music to make you move.
HARMONAUTS (TORONTO Soul/Ska/Reggae)
Shattering the boundaries of what a live trio typically delivers, Harmonauts draw influence from Jamaican ska and reggae infusing their custom blend of up-beat British invasion, smooth American soul and gritty punk rock.
COPPER CROWN (TORONTO Ska/indie)
a Toronto-based 5-piece ensemble that melds several styles of rock and ska in a way that feels natural and never forced. Not easily defined beyond the broad label of “ska rock”; the bandmates take pride in writing individual parts directed by their own, unique backgrounds in music, which results in a lot of surprising outcomes; such as the dancey ska rock tune “The Messenger” which has a hard rock breakdown, or the 50’s style crooner “Irene” and its unexpected punk rock interlude.
STORK & THE BABY MAKERS (Hamilton Ska)
Aside from having one of the best names - STORK & THE BABY MAKERS are a Ska/Ska-Punk band hailing from Hamilton, ON. Since their formation in 2016, they've performed at a number of Hamilton venues including This Ain't Hollywood, Casbah, Doors Pub, Corktown Pub and Club Absinthe. They released their self-titled debut EP August 11, 2017 in conjunction with Toronto Ska Fest at which they performed.
And of course:
The VOICE OF THE PEOPLE DJs playing nothing but the best in Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae all spun live on vintage 45s. Expect classics such as Toots and the Maytals, Derrick Morgan, Prince Buster, and much much more!
