What We Offer

Line Up

Ska Wars’ standard line up is a 6 piece band including rhythm section, brass, lead singer and backing vocals. We also offer a deluxe line up for extra special events with a 2 or 3 piece brass section and/or a double front man extravaganza which would leave even the likes of Madness gasping for breath! You can find out all about the band on our Line Up page.

Set Lengths

People often book us for evening sets although we have been known to do an effective daytime turn when the mood takes us.

Standard set times are generally: 2 x 45minutes (plus encores). We are happy to discuss other requirements and regularly perform 2 x 60 minute sets, and have also played 1 x 90 minutes and 1 x 120 minutes sets. If required we have enough material for 3 sets.

Basically, we love to play and can tailor our performance to suit your event!


We specialise in playing 2-Tone classics by The Specials, Madness, Bad Manners, The Selector, The Beat etc, while throwing some soulful Jamaican Ska / Rocksteady into the mix from the likes of Toots and the Maytals, Desmond Dekker and Jimmy Cliff. You can see a full list of tracks to choose from on our Set List page, and feel free to check out our Music and Video page.


On request we can provide full PA and lighting for the performance, and can also provide party tunes to play in between sets (or you can provide your own playlist via iPod, smart-phone, laptop etc. to connect to our system).

We insist on providing 100% live performances and the most printable comment we can offer on the subject of backing tracks is ‘clubtastic’. As a result you get to hear all the musicians playing together in the same room at the same time, which we find helps to recreate the Ska spirit!

Please contact us for further information and to discuss your requirements.
