This five piece started out as a swing and jazz outfit and

converted in early 2007 to pure Ska vibes. In keeping with their jazz roots,

Skazz have chosen the original Jamaican scene Ska of the 1960’s – when

Caribbean mento and calypso first met American jazz and rhythm and

blues. Having already shared stages with the likes of The Skatalites,

Prince Buster, The Pioneers, and Syramip, and performing regularly at the

Cork Jazz Festival since 2009 and Electric Picnic, they are the resident

band of the Doonbeg Jazz Festival. They have also played Trier Jazz

Festival (Germany), Bray Jazz ,Townlands Carnival, Ted Fest , Fest Valle

Luna (La Gomera Spain) and countless other events . The strong brass

section leads the way with tenor sax and trumpet ably backed by a tight

rhythm section and skanking guitar riffs . Their music is happy, lively and

will have you up and dancing ! They look forward to returning to this years
