Melbourne Ska Orchestra - One Year of Ska
Sat 07 Sep
An explosive celebration of music unfolds, when the force of a dozen horn players, a mean rhythm section, and multiple percussion, keys and vocalists hit the stage to make the skankin powerhouse that is, Melbourne Ska Orchestra.
Conducted by the charismatic and energetic Nicky Bomba, the ARIA Award winning Melbourne Ska Orchestra never do anything by half measures. Not only does the band at times perform with up to 35 members on stage, but they also record and release material at break neck speed.
Paying respect to the Jamaican Sound System phenomenon, where artists would record and release new tracks on a weekly basis, MSO committed to doing the same in 2018. For one whole year, 52 songs, 52 weeks! We are not sure if any other band has done this before. It sure seems like a record of some kind has been broken.
Their unique take on the genre of Ska has wowed audiences all over the world, don’t miss them when they pack the Tanks stage!
