Bio

Tef London is the birth of an emerging wave of ska music based out of entertainment metro, Orlando, FL. While ska bands of the past have reggae and Jamaican influences, Tef London is guided by an invigorating mix of American music like swing, punk, and dixieland. The band boasts an incredible 4-piece horn section, comprised of some of the best local jazz musicians and features complex, big-band horn lines and a magnetic sound. With shout vocals, a rockin' female lead on bass, and a kicking rhythm section, Tef London has sold out shows across the state of Florida.

The suit and tie ensemble plays both ska favorites and original music which has filled a niche for innovative ska music. With influences like Reel Big Fish, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Streetlight Manifesto and Squirrel Nut Zippers, Tef London continues to make their mark across the state of Florida.

Founded by Jenny Morrison (Bass) and Chris King (former Trumpet) in 2010, the band was formed based on a mutual passion for ska music. The band features members who are well known throughout Central Florida for their work as professional musicians in the community and collectively hold several degrees in music performance, music composition, recording arts, music education, and music business. The band highlights their incredible performers with riveting solos and throwbacks to jazz and ragtime music.

The band was featured as Hank Williams’ backing band on ESPN’s Monday Night Football Theme in 2011 and continues to release guerrilla music videos and is commended by the DIY scene for printing all their own merchandise and being nominated by the Singer Songwriter Association of Florida for their great songwriting.
