Intensified (Ska Special!)

November 17 @ 8:30 pm - 11:30 pm

- FREE ENTRY

INTENSIFIED have been fortunate enough to share a stage with dozens of bands and singers over more than 25 years, from Jools Holland to an authentic Zulu choir, including most of the contemporary ska favourites around the globe: Hepcat, The Slackers, Aggrolites, The Toasters, Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, 2 Tone stars such as The Selecter and Bad Manners and original ska and reggae legends from the past and present including Prince Buster, Toots, Jimmy Cliff, Laurel Aitken, Desmond Dekker, Dennis Brown, Phylis Dillon, Morgan Heritage and the originators, Skatalites.

The band has also had the pleasure of working on stage and at the BBC with Jamaican greats such as Rico, Dennis Alcapone, Winston Francis, Pat Kelly, Dave Barker, and the late great legend of ja music, Alton Ellis.

The band remains standing defiant against a sea of pop, punk and other modern interpretations of original Jamaican sounds, not against progress or to put up musical limitations, but to continue sharing the pure, untampered and uplifting style with the world. The sheer energy and irresistible dance beat within the original ska and reggae forms are eternal and INTENSIFIED prove that it does not have to be turbo charged to have the whole crowd dancing, singing and smiling all night.
