About


The South London Ska Train are a group of young Ska and Reggae-mad musicians from South London. With a focus on horn-heavy big party tunes from the likes of the Skatalites, they're guaranteed to get any party bouncing up and down to the ska beat! They are perhaps best described as a collective as there can be anything from 7 to 14 of them (depending on how big you want to go!)

Between them, the members of The South London Ska Train have played shows all over the world with the likes of Madness, Rico Rodriguez, Kiko Bun, Holly Cook, Gentleman's Dub Club, Chronixx to name but a few. Be in no doubt, they are some of the top musicians playing Reggae and Ska on the London and European circuit. If you want your party to go off with a bang, then you can't go wrong with this band.

Wow, you blew us away! What an amazing band - so tight and groovy. We were skeptical that our elderly relatives would join in but you guys had the whole dance floor bouncing!
