      EVENT DETAILS
      Skambomambo Uk Tour Swindon

      SKAMBOMAMBO is led by Maltese frontman Don Mario boosted by the SkamboMob based in Szczecin on the Polish/German border. Stage experienced the band is a must see live!!!!!

      Skambomambo fuses its own original brand of Ska with other genres like rock, pop, punk, funk and so on as the various members of the SkamboMob have a wide gigging past and this inspires the Ska Made in Pol-Ska as presented by SKAMBOMAMBO.

      The show is an energetic eclectic mix of SKAMBOMAMBO tracks from their “Black Molly” Demo out in 2007, their debut album “Made In Pol-Ska” in 2008, “Jeszcze Jeden” Single 2009 (The only Polish language track so far) and their new Album “Made To Specification” 2011 together with a repertoire of cover versions from well known artists and traditional ska tunes.

      SKAMBOMAMBO’s history kicked off with the “Taxi Driver,” single which first set them to local fame during the Gramy Festival where the band placed 2nd in a panel vote and 1st in a public vote. This sent the band on an extensive promotional festival tour round Poland, Ukraine and Germay.

      SKAMBOMAMBO is characterised by a brass section apart from the standard drum, bass, guitar, vocal line-up. The set-list is adapted for each venue and normally allows for a 90 minute performance unless otherwise agreed.

      SKAMBOMAMBO’s C.V. includes a vast number of performances in various clubs and at prestigious events. SKAMBOMAMBO is the only Polish Ska band to have toured the Ukraine extensively and the only Polish Ska band to make it to the popular Nowa Generacja TV4 programme and even reach the final. Other televised appearances have made SKAMBOMAMBO one, if not the most popular ska bands in Poland and these include TVP1 and 2, TVN, VIVA, 4Fun TV, Rebel TV, Patio TV apart from Local Szczecin TV which regularly features videos, live gigs and interviews with the band. Live radio emissions have also been frequently broadcast. Apart from regular gigs the band also supports various fund raising and charity organisations, notably WOSP which is the largest National Charity event. The band also played a series of gigs in prisons around Poland.

      The greatest honour was for SKAMBOMAMBO to be chosen to play during The City Council’s Official New Years Eve celebrations 2009 in Szczecin and 2011 in Miedzyzdroje. Other top notch performances include Jarocin Festival, Flader Pop Festival, Afryka Reggae Festival, Reggeneracja Festival, Pepsi Vena Music Festival, Dni Morza, Kamyki Open Air Festival, Stolica Reggae Festival, End of Summer Party, Felderschaft Festival in Grunz, loads of Juwenalia gigs every year, Festival Gramy, Kite and Surf Final 2010, BMW Sauber Launch, The Polish Ska Festival and many more.

      Locally the band plays regular gigs at top clubs like Rocker Club, Free Blues Club and Kontrasty Club amongst others. The band gigged for 60 events in 2010 and is looking to top this in 2011 apart from clubs in Warsaw, Krakow, Katowice, Gdansk, Elblag, Olsztyn, Lodz, Opole, Legnica, Poznan, Wroclaw, Lublin, Radom, Zakopane, Barczewo, Jelenia Gora, Zielona Gora, Bydgoscz, Torun, Plock, Mielono, Kolobrzeg, Koszalin, Gorzow, Gryfino, Stargard, Angermunde, Grunz, Berlin, Gorlitz. The list is endless. This year we’re adding more new cities including the UK. The tour will include London, Birmingham, Worcestershire, Cardiff, Swansea, Southampton, Swindon, Bristol amongst others.

      So far the band has supported international acts like Primal Scream, The Happy Mondays, The Claxons, Alliance Ethnic, Babylon Circus, The Rotterdam Jazz Ska Foundation, La Pegatina, The Hepcats and top Polish stars like Ich Troja, Raz Dwa Trzy, Czerwony Gitary, Norbi, Lao Che, Indio Bravos, Sydney Polak and many others.
