The Gangsters

If you like Ska and 2 Tone, you’ll love The Gangsters!

While music genres come and go, few styles have stood the test of time as well as Ska and 2 Tone. The Gangsters pay tribute to the very best of the genre, so – if you can’t dance to this – you can’t dance! 

The Gangsters are a 5-piece Ska and 2 Tone band who keep the tradition of black and white alive with what can only be described as the ultimate Ska tribute band. Dressed from head to toe in their very own ‘Gangsters’ gear, the band look as good as they sound. From the very first beat your feet will be tapping and before you know it you’ll be on the dancefloor ‘skanking’ to the sound of The Gangsters.

The Gangsters ethos is to play the songs in the style of the original band and as you would expect The Gangsters play the floor fillers from Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat to name but a few! With the very best Ska and 2 Tone songs, exciting live shows and a sound that encapsulates the best of what Ska and 2 Tone have to offer, there’s no doubt that The Gangsters are rightfully considered one of the very best Ska/2 Tone tribute bands around.

2018 has been a whirlwind year for The Gangsters, which started with the release of their latest EP ‘Local Heroes’. In May 2018, The Gangsters appeared on the ‘Back to the 80’s’ cruise where the gigs were standing room only, the dancefloor was packed for every gig. The band has also provided the pre-match entertainment for Brighton and Hove Albion Premier League matches, opened the first Brighton ‘Skanival’, Scooter and VW rallies, University Events and numerous Festivals.
