The Skatalites are the seminal ska band from Jamaica. Officially formed in 1964 after playing in studios together all over Kingston, these musicians came together to perform live shows. In addition to these live shows, these musicians were the backing band for Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff and Toots and The Maytals to name just a few. They are the roots to the tree whose branches include rocksteady, reggae, rap. dub, punk, two-tone, 3rd wave, ska-jazz, ska-core and ragga. Now in their 41st year, they continue to please crowds throughout the globe.

The Phenomenauts' style of spage-age bachelor pad science-surf received early recognition during their infamous commando-style performances in front of legendary venues such as the Fillmore to unsuspecting crowds. LIve, their style and music honors vintage sci-fi with punk rock furiosity and their fans pack the place dressed as robots and what look like extras from an r-rated Jetsons episode.
