The Skatalites :

2019 marks the 55th Anniversary of The Skatalites. The original members had played on hundreds of recording sessions before forming the band in 1964. They backed most of the vocalists in Jamaica at that time, including Bob Marley, Toots and The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Alton Ellis,Ken Boothe, and many more. After disbanding in 1965 the individual members continued playing in various groups as the music evolved from ska to rocksteady to reggae. In the late 70’s a resurgence of interest in the music began in the U.K. which caused the creation of many bands such as The Specials, The English Beat, Madness, The Selecter and Bad Manners. This became known as the “Two-Tone era” and these British musicians fused rock music with the ska and reggae. In the early 80’s the music started to spread to The U.S.A and other parts of the world and bands began to emerge everywhere playing different flavors of ska and reggae fused with whatever else they wanted to throw in, including hard core , jazz and even punk. In 1983 The Skatalites reunited to play Reggae Sunsplash in Montego Bay and subsequently in London at The Crystal Palace for the U.K version of The Sunsplash event. A few years later they began emigrating to the U.S.A and in 1986 the first US shows began at The Village Gate in NYC. In 1989 the band supported Bunny Wailer on The Liberation Tour and in 1990 they embarked on their first headline tour of The U.S.A. and have not stopped touring the world ever since. The band is available for festivals and also plays in intimate club settings. Their unique infectious brand of real Jamaican ska pleases audiences of all ages across the globe year after year. “We hope you will enjoy listening to our music as much as we enjoy performing it for you.”

Freddy Loco :

En 2004 il démarre son premier projet, Magwalé Freedom, et sort un premier opus intitulé “Arrêter vos machines”. En 2006, Fred crée le groupe Freddy Loco dédicacé au Ska et Rocksteady. En 2007, il traverse l’atlantique et réalise son second Cd, Taba, en collaboration avec Sidney Mills des Steel Pulse. Kevin Batchelor apparaît sur l’enregistrement avec quelques magnifiques solos de trompette. Le troisième CD “Satellites” vois le jour en 2009 mixé par l’excellent Victor Rice au Brésil. On y retrouve quelques figures majeures du mouvement comme Kevin Batchelor et Cédric Brooks des Skatalites mais aussi Rocksteady Freddie des New York Ska Jazz Ensemble. La même année Freddy loco enregistre une reprise, “Returm of the Los Palmas 7” pour la compilation anniversaire de Madness sur Big8 Records. En 2011 avec Fred Reiter (Rocksteady Freddie des NYSJE) en tant que directeur artistique, une quatrième réalisation voit le jour, justement intitulée “Round 4”, double labelisé sur Rocking records (DE) et Megalith Records (USA).
Actuellement il produit une nouvelle tournée très prometteuse avec les Skatalisers Kevin Batchelor et Ken Stewart !!
