“Interskalactic are a 10-piece band performing first wave, old-school, big band Jamaican Ska. We opened up the Main Stage on the Saturday of this year’s Body & Soul, managed to have great craic, get people up and dancing and also get the whole thing recorded in the process!

We’ve a pretty busy schedule for the rest of the year too, so if anyone’s digging the tunes they can check out some tracks and our upcoming schedule on Facebook / Twitter / Soundcloud, Cheers!”
