One Night Band

One Night Band


The One Night Band is one of Canada's premier ska and reggae acts. Having toured North America on more than one occasion since the release of their first record in 2006, the sextet has rapidly developed a loyal fan base everywhere they go. Their motto: play every show as if it were their last!


Started in 2003, the One Night Band is a hardworking group that has built its reputation by adding its own flavor to Jamaican classics (Toots and the Maytals, The Skatalites, Prince Buster, Ken Boothe, etc.), while yielding its own compositions. Highly accessible, the band’s music is sure to satisfy anyone seeking to unwind and escape the monotony of the daily grind.

Since the release of their debut record entitled “Way Back Home” (2006) on STOMP Records, the One Night Band has been touring relentlessly and has rapidly become one of the newest sensations in the North American ska-reggae scene. With three Canadian and three US tours, 350 concerts and more than 2000 albums sold, the One Night Band is not only attracting crowds from coast to coast but also sees itself being respected by media and peers alike.

The One Night Band has been featured in various festivals (Pop Montreal, Vans Warped Tour, Montreal International Jazz Fest, Victoria Ska Fest, Three Floors of Ska) and has had the chance to share the stage and tour with bands such as Chris Murray, The Aggrolites, Westbound Train, The Toasters, Mad Caddies, Me Mom and Morgentaler, Neville Staples, The Planet Smashers, Lynval Golding, The Flatliners, etc.

The band is already hard at work on their very anticipated sophomore record, which will be released next fall.
