Some Ska Band

Corn Hill Arts Festival Entertainment

Some time in October, 2011, five scrappy musicians formed a band with one simple dream. To pull off the biggest diamond heist the world had ever seen. In the process they discovered a shared love of Ska music. The band started covering early 60’s classics as well as 2Tone and Third Wave tunes before writing their own original songs in a contemporary Ska style. Soon the band was playing gigs across the region and opening for bands like The Pietasters, Pilfers and Bim Skala Bim. In 2018 the band released a self-titled, 9-track CD and in 2021 they performed at the Supernova International Ska Festival.

Over the years, new musicians joined and others moved on, but the band has remained true to its upbeat Ska roots.. In 2020, Tricia Lynn-Gonzalez, safe-cracker and lead singer with the legendary 90s band The Miggedys, joined the crew. .Today Some Ska Band is a tight, 9-piece outfit, and while they have yet to pull off that heist, they’re keeping busy with packing dance floors and recording your new favorite songs.
