BandWorldReggae

Take a skillet, put in the best Ska and Rocksteady Music from the 50’s and 60’s, mix and shake that with doo-wop, rhythm&blues, latin and balkan-like grooves, and let it cook! That is about the sound of BANG the Skillet!

Biography

In 2008 some local rude boys and girls from Delft decided to put new life into the almost forgotten Jamaican Music history. After a bandname-contest they called themselves ‘BANG the Skillet’ (a beautiful songtitle of a song from Go Jimmy Go). BANG the Skillet decided to play the ska with a nod to the authentic ska from the 50‘s, but with a modern twist.

BANG the Skillet play their own songs and besides they cover classics (in a comfortable ska-coat) from their heroes of ska: Laurel Aitken, Dennis Morgan, Dandy Livingstone, The Skatalites, Hepcat, Go Jimmy Go and The Slackers.

They do that with a line-up of 9 musicians.

It is almost impossible to listen to the music of BANG the Skillet and not feel like skanking your socks off! Every concert is a celebration of the best ska-music that is ever made! Young and old people enjoy the funny lyrics and the good musicvibes! Come on you rude boys and girls! Get on board of the Skillet-ska-train!

Let’s take the love train to a sunny place
Let’s take the love train to your heart
Let’s take the love train to the universe
Let’s take the love trainto your heart

You don’t need no tickets, It’s free to take a ride
Just push the button and it stops, don’t miss it, you decide………..

Let’s take the love train to a funny place
Let’s take the love train to your heart
Let’s take the love train to the other side
Let’s take the love train to your heart
You don’t need no tickets, It’s free to take a ride
Just push the button and it stops, don’t miss it, you decide………..

Let’s take the love train to a sunny place
Let’s take the love train to your heart
Let’s take the love train to the universe
Let’s take the love train to your heart

You don’t need no tickets, It’s free to take a ride
Just push the button and it stops, don’t miss it, you decide………..

Let’s take the love train
Let’s take the love train
Let’s take the love train
Let’s take the love train to your heart
