Sound One

Sound One

 Toronto, Ontario, CAN

Explosive Vintage Ska to burn holes in your soles. Elements of Ska, Calypso, Rock Steady, Burru drumming, Soul, and Jazz are all brought together, driven by powerful horn lines. You can certainly expect the best from a group of musicians who’ve collectively spent over 30 years in the Canadian music scene.


Sound One play Ska the way it was done 50 years ago, with heart and soul. No gimmicks, it's all about playing as hot as they can and avoiding the tired "Ska" cliches and format. These fellas and lady bring you back to a time where horn sections were applauded and heavy groove carried a sense of pride, the band believes full heartily in the soulful lining of their hard work. Live in an instrumental state of mind and set your conscious free. Join the ska-jazz dance party that lets your body sweat, your ear drums jump and your feet pulse.

The band is excited to be recording with nationally celebrated Producer, Composer and Musician, Mitch “King Kong” Girio. The magic that Mitch can lend to the recording process has enlightened the projects of One Night Band, The Kingpins, Lo and the Magnetics, The Expos and many more talented artists.

Playing live is what this band does, and they kill it every time. Highlights include performing at the 2010 Burlington Sound of Music Festival, 2010 Pitter Patter Festival, as well as sharing the stage with Modern Afrobeat greats “Nomo” and one of Ska music’s finest singer/songwriters “Chris Murray”.
