The Skatalites live in London

Once described by Rolling Stone magazine as 'Jamaica's answer to the Motown house band and Booker T. and the MG's combined', The Skatalites are playing live in London for one night only - Wednesday 24th November.

It's the band's first London date for two years, this time with a line-up featuring original band members including Cedric IM Brooks, Lester Sterling and Lloyd Knibb. Not bad for a band that formed 46 years ago.

The venue for the show is the Bloomsbury Ballroom, with tickets on sale now for £22.50 each.

I saw The Skatalites play in Deutschland earlier this year. The time before that, I saw them mash it up in Berlin with Dr Ring Ding playing the trombone with them, a few years back.

I've saw quite a lot of Jamaican stars while I've been over there, but The Skatalites are special. Always will be.

........Plus support from a band called Bombskare from Scotland. Had a quick look on You Tube and they look well good with a great sound. Looks like Monday is a double bonus.
