THE SKATONICS came crashing onto the scene in 2007, and since then have performed to the ever growing enthusiastic Ska followers at venues and festivals across the UK and Europe.
They have backed Suggs recently at a charity event in Whitstable and have supported the mighty MADNESS at the Kent County Showground. They have also supported the likes of The Selecter, Bad Manners, Geno Washington, Neville Staple (The Specials), Bruce Foxtons ‘From the Jam’ and many others. They have also been regulars at large VW events, Dub Aid, numerous scooter rallies, BMF meetings and Folkestone’s annual ‘Skabour’ Festival since it's started in 2010 when the guys were the very first band on supporting The Beat.
The Skatonics pride themselves on an authentic look and sound. Sharply dressed in tonic suits, pork pie's and loafers to match the tight, energetic sets they perform to loyal followers. At any event, you can expect to hear most of the hits from the bands of the 2tone era (Madness, Specials, Bad Manners, Selecter etc) as well as some older Trojan ska classics and a few 'others' the band have given their little ska twist to.
