Yes folks, you didn’t hear it here first. You might have heard a rumour, and suddenly it was announced. Skata Tones will be performing at this year’s Boomtown Fair, on the Friday at the Chinatown Courtyard stage.
We’re totally stoked. Can’t wait for the next few gigs, including the fantastic local bands night at The Plough Arts Centre and a showcase gig at The George, Braunton next weekend.
The calendar is filling up fast and it looks like the miles will be racking up over the next few months, with dates in Bristol, Fareham, Salisbury, Sidmouth and Exmouth, along with plenty of appearances in our native North Devon.
A year in the life of Skata Tones. What a year it has been…

We’re over the moon to announce that we’re adding trombone to the instrumentation.
