KlezSka, Skatelites, NYC, May 30

KlezSka logoKlezSka! will be opening for the legendary Jamaican Ska Band, The Skatalites this Sunday May 30th at The Knitting Factory, 74 Leonard St. in Lower Manhattan. 9:30 showtime.

The Skatalites created Ska music in the early 1960's and were the house band for Studio One where all of the greats recorded including Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Jimmy Cliff - everyone. Klezska takes klezmer and Jewish music and combines it with this traditional form of Ska (not to be confused with the 3rd wave or "Punk Ska" that one usually hears on the radio these days).
