SKAZZ: 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 Cork Jazz 2021.
