Following on the success of a monster 20th-anniversary tour, which included headline festival performances in Mexico and Indonesia, Melbourne Ska Orchestra return with their signature "International Ska" sound and energy-packed live show. This unstoppable 21-piece behemoth is a turbo-charged freight train of pure dancefloor magic! 
With special guests Chutney!

Formed in 2003 Melbourne Ska Orchestra is an orchestra with a difference, this juggernaut contains some of Australia’s finest musicians and performers. Helmed by the energetic and charismatic Nicky Bomba (John Butler Trio, Bomba, Bustamento) Melbourne Ska Orchestra are more than just a band, they are an experience to behold.

Melbourne Ska Orchestra’s live performance is explosive and infectious. Their unique take on the genre of Ska has wowed audiences all over the world. From Montreal to New York, Istanbul to London, Tokyo to Mexico and with the approval of Reggae and Ska pioneers like Stranger Cole, Owen Gray, Carlos Malcolm, Ranking Roger and Neville Staples the Melbourne Ska Orchestra sound is resonating with audiences worldwide – young and old.

 

Supported by Chutney:

Chutney is an Aussie klezmer band with a twist. Drawing on their Eastern European and Middle Eastern heritage, they play a spicy mix of original bangers and fresh takes on traditional dance tunes. Comprising clarinet, violin, keyboard, bass, percussion and drums - plus guest singers - the band gleefully hopscotch from folk to pop, jazz to tango, classical to funk, east to west. Bring your dancing shoes and expect to get sweaty!
