The unstoppable explosion of ska madness that is Skata Tones will have you skanking and jumping with every beat. Front-man Robbie presents infectious, energetic, original songs that blend intense ska, reggae and dub beats, driving basslines and blistering guitar chops with crazy brass antics.
Skata Tones have raised the roof at some of the UK’s most incredible festivals, including a return to Boomtown Fair, Victorious Festival, Beautiful Days, One Love and House Of Fun (opening for Madness) as well as being guests at the inaugural Dub Pistols’ Mucky Weekender. The fastest moving ska band in the West has become a must-watch act and an unforgettable experience.
The Momentum Sessions was released in 2020. A set of genre-crossing, high-energy studio recordings featuring brand new tunes alongside some older originals that are enough to kick off any party mix. Showcase performances from each of the band members take you on a journey from symphonic textures and searing guitar lines to complex rhythms and quick-fire rap delivery. All this packed into some awsome dancing tunes!
Their 2018 release on CD and Vinyl, A Day At The Fair, captures all the fun of the festival and summer vibes with hints of gypsy jazz, ska punk, a touch of madness and a lot of fun…
It’s all about the party, the weekend, the music and the fun.
Skata Tones have a good time ALL the time!

What the people say:
David Rodigan: (playing Rolling Into Work on BBC Radio 1/1Xtra)
“It’s a bit nutty, isn’t it?”
“By their third song they had the crowd all dancing and on-board and mid set they upped the tempo and the room was bouncing.”
“musically they were tight and full of energy.”
Audience member Frankie Viggers, interviewed by MusoMuso:
“Honestly, it’s not often I enjoy support bands so much, but they were so hyper and up and readying the crowd.”
“Despite being relative unknowns the likes of Holiday To The Moon, festival anthem anthem Welcome To Boomtown and Something Real were all received as fan favourites as the tent seemed to groove and holler as one…”
