Up for a party, Go Go Skank

Brass-led and up for a party, Go Go Skank mash up a mix of 80s pop classics and the occasional ‘banger’ from an older generation… and rain them down in their own high-energy inimitable style. A heady mix of talent, this motley crew of musicians’ background of ska, reggae, rock and roll, pop, funk and soul all comes together in unique ‘Skankster’ style.

Whether you are looking for a band for a wedding, birthday celebration, a pub night or private party, Go Go Skank will get you up on the dance floor! They are based in west Cornwall but more than happy to fire up the Go Go Bus and play further afield. Check out the band’s Gig List online to see where they are playing next or their Sounds and Vision page for a sample setlist and taster of what they sound like. As the band always say: “You’ll know the words, you’ll love the tunes but you’ve never heard ‘em quite like this before.”
