The Skatalites Play Portland, ME and NYC this February, Record New Album!

Old school ska fans in the Portland, ME and NYC metro areas will have a chance to catch The Skatalites this February, who are doing a mini-tour (what they're calling a "tour-bit") of the Northeast (see dates below).

The band, currently led by original member Lester "Ska" Sterling on alto sax (and featuring Doreen Shaffer on vocals), is recording a new album for release later in 2012 (which will, presumably, be in celebration of the 48th anniversary of the band)!

Here is the current line-up of the band:

Lester Sterling - alto saxophone
Doreen Shaffer - vocals
Azemobo "Zem" Audu - tenor saxophone
Andrae Murchison - trombone
Kevin Batchelor - trumpet
Val Douglas - bass guitar
Natty Frenchy - guitar
Cameron Greenlee - keyboards
Trevor "Sparrow" Thompson - drums
