Dakka Skanks formed in mid-2016. They are a 5-piece ska/dub/reggae band based out of Brighton. Combining catchy choruses, up-tempo riffs and dubby breakdowns, they create a new hybrid blend to set their own stamp on a classic sound.
It all began when Henry and Clara met in university when she performed her rendition of the iconic ‘Ghost Town’. When he heard it, they immediately formed the beginnings of Dakka Skanks. They recruited members along the way until there were 5. Then the adventure begun.
Dakka Skanks have already played all around the UK music scene hotspots and now set their sights on Europe. They have hit top UK festivals including Skamouth, House of Fun, Paddle Round the Pier and mainland shows at Riverside Stomp in Germany, Feeling Groove in France and many more. Make sure you catch them at a show near you, you wont regret it!
In 2018, they played sets supporting Madness, ex-Specials legend Neville Staple, The Skatalites and Symarip legend Monty Neysmith. 2019 is looking up with bookings coming in left and right for festivals and gigs both UK and abroad including O.U.T West festival, Glastonwick, Nice n Sleazy and a return to Europe.
