Formed in 2014, Soul Ska is a Bay Area collective dedicated to keeping ska & rocksteady music alive. The 10 piece group is comprised of veteran members of many well known Bay Area bands such as Vinyl, Monophonics, Stymie & the Pimp Jones Love Orchestra, The Right Time, Albino!, El Radio Fantastique, Jethro Jeremiah Band and more.
Drawing equally from the original Jamaican first wave as well as the British second wave, Soul Ska has a rootsy, upbeat sound that leans heavily on vocal harmony as well as a full horn section. Over the last three years Soul Ska has become a Bay Area favorite and played rousing sets for large festival crowds at Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (Mendocino), Ocean Beach Fest (SF), Summer Arts & Music (Humboldt), Fairfax Festival, Muir Beach Fireman's BBQ and more.
Soul Ska has had the pleasure of supporting legendary acts such as Yellowman, Don Carlos, Capleton, Zulu Spear, Israel Vibrations, Fishbone, Third World and is honored to open for The English Beat January 12, 2018 at SF's Independent. Soul Ska celebrated the release of their debut album “Propaganda” produced by David Simon Baker (Jackie Greene/ALO/Mother Hips) March 23, 2018 at SF's Great American Music Hall. They are currently working on a music video with Agent Orange (Primus). Soul Ska is active on Facebook, Instagram and their web address is www.soulskamusic.com
