Here are a few chipper comments from satisfied punters:

“Pure class high energy entertainment and the band looked like they were enjoying it as much as audience. I’d love to pay to see you boys do a full live set. Get your [posteriors] down to Liverpool soon”
Tommy – Mathew Street Festival, Liverpool

“Nice one guys – Once again, Ska Wars were superb, highlight of the day”

“Dear Ska Wars,
Thankyou so much for playing at our wedding. You got the whole place STOMPING! Everybody loved it, I danced so much I got sweaty knees!”
Mr and Mrs James – Near Crewkerne, Somerset

“Once again, an awesome gig last night guys. Well and truly skanked out this morning!! Cheers!”
Jim – Holmfirth

“Thank you for a fantastic night on 25th Sept when you played at my 50th birthday bash. Everyone who attended thought you were absolutely fantastic and throughly enjoyed the night. Your patience with the club, who were beyond belief with their ‘lets try and spoil the night and stop people enjoying themselves’ attitude was amazing and professional to the end. You made 200 people very happy and put on a wonderful show. Please do not hesitate to give my name to anyone who wants a testimonial as I would be more than happy to recommed you, a few people have taken your number and I hope you get some more gigs as you truly deserve them. Thanks again for a rocking evening.”
Mary – Woking

“[…] definitely the best band there 🙂 highlight of the weekend!”
Jade – Hewish, Somerset

“They were fantastic. Having booked quite a few bands for parties over the years they were the best we have ever had. Their enthusiasm and great music ensured a full dance floor from the first song until they finished 2 hours later. They provided perfect music for a diverse group of 30-50 year olds dressed as large insects! We have dozens of thank you letters all praising the ‘great band’. I would heartily recommend them to anyone organizing a party and wanting to get something that provides a whole lot more raucous fun than the ubiquitous bespangled cool funk on offer elsewhere. To top it all they were all extremely nice people!”
Ned – Newbury, Berks

“It was a brilliant night and the band were awesome – my crowd of family and friends aren’t especially noted for their dancing, so to get everyone in the party mood so early on was a real triumph, and I’ve heard nothing but praise from all the guests about how good you were.  Please pass our thanks on once again to everyone involved – Dave especially, as he was great with the kids, and no-one could believe he was a stand-in.  You’ll have to tell Bob to watch out!  :-). If you ever need a reference, you know where to come – the whole booking, set-up and exit was handled in an exemplary manner as well, and really contributed to the low stress levels of the evening. Thank you all so much!”
Alex Fry – Whitchurch, Shropshire

“There’s nothing like a good bit of ska to get a festival started, and main-stage openers Ska Wars really know what a good bit of ska is. Resplendent in two-tone and a kilt no less (on Trumpet Player Nick Huge), Ska Wars look the part as well as sounding it. Once we’d got the expected nod to Lucasfilm (well what would you expect from Skarth Vader and Ska-2-d-2?) Ska Wars really took off. Good old school ska with all the trimmings (the influence of Madness and The Specials shining through), which was performed quite frankly masterfully. I couldn’t see a person within 100 yards not skanking. After a blinding set, front man Bobba Fat left the stage after addressing the crowd pontifical style: “bless you, bless you”, and went to a galaxy far, far away.”
Guilfest – main stage review

“Could you please thank all the guys for a wonderful night. Music is all about passion and enthusiasm and you lot had it in bucket loads, and it really comes across .Everyone commented how good you all were and it wouldn’t surprise Me if you pick up a few more bookings from the people who where there.Hope you all enjoyed it and hope to see you again sometime. All the best”
John & Gilly – Glossop
