Dakka Skanks

Dakka Skanks formed in mid-2016 This is no run of the mill Ska band. They are a 5-piece ska/dub/reggae band based out of Brighton. The home of the Mod. Combining catchy choruses, up-tempo riffs and dubby breakdowns, they create a new hybrid blend to set their own stamp on a classic sound.

Amy winehouse meets jamie T with Poly Styrene in the room, with the energy of The Specials 2tone label is what immediately jumps to mind when you witness a Dakka Skanks show.
Meeting at music college in Brighton this young band have pulled together so many influences, to take a ska rhythm into 21st century, blending in a London grime truly British sound into an established Jamaican dance. But with some really top class indi rock guitar giving this band something really fresh and new. Clara Byrne on lead vocals mesmerizing vocal which cuts through like a wave of emotion, her lyrical content straight from the soul, with a few quite serious social issues explored. Josh throwing some London lingo over the top, bouncing back and forth with Clara, as the band steer the music along.
Formed in 2016. This band have come on leagues in a very short time. Involved in The Camden Roundhouse emerging artists programme, Spider Johnson (Potato 5, Lee Perry, Acid jazz) has produced the first albums worth of tracks, really pulling the lose ends together, giving a professional edge of experience.
Dakka Skanks are already picking up several live shows from promoters across Europe, the first Spanish mini tour of Madrid area already generating more offers, and several shows across Germany. 2018 confirmed shows with Madness, Neville Staple, Skatalites, headline spot at Paddle Round the Pier, Brighton's largest free festival. and extensive shows around mainland Europe and UK
Dakka Skanks formed in mid-2016 with a goal to fusing their own music tastes together into a new sound. They are a 5-piece ska/dub/reggae/punk band based out of Brighton. Combining catchy choruses, up-tempo riffs and dubby breakdowns, they create a new hybrid blend to set their own stamp on a classic sound.
It all began when Henry and Clara met in university when she performed her rendition of the iconic ‘Ghost Town’. When he heard it, they immediately formed the beginnings of Dakka Skanks. They recruited members along the way until there were 5. Then the adventure begun.
Dakka Skanks have already played many great venues all over the UK and Europe, playing in Belgium, France, Spain and Germany. Make sure you catch them at a show near you, you wont regret it!
Check out Dakka Skanks Live performance They are playing some iconic sets including Skamouth, 2Tone Village and more, having already supported Monty Neysmith of Symarip and Neville Staple of The Specials. Keep an eye out on the page for more dates being added to see Dakka Skanks in your town.
