Formed in 2014, Soul Ska is a Bay Area collective with a fresh take on the classic ska/ rocksteady idiom. The 8-10 piece band is comprised of veteran members the Bay Area scene from bands such as Vinyl, Monophonics, Stymie & the Pimp Jones Love Orchestra, The Right Time, Albino!, El Radio Fantastique, Jethro Jeremiah Band and more. Drawing equally from the original Jamaican first wave as well as the British second wave, Soul Ska has a rootsy, upbeat sound that leans heavily on vocal harmony and a three-piece horn section. Soul Ska has become a Northern California festival favorite and played rousing sets for huge crowds at Sierra Nevada World Music Festival (Mendocino), Ocean Beach Fest (SF), Summer Arts & Music (Humboldt) to name a few.
 
Soul Ska has had the pleasure of suppoorting such legendary acts as Yellowman,  on Carlos, Capleton, Zulu Spear, Israel Vibrations, Fishbone, Third World and more. Soul Ska supported The English Beat at SF's Independent recently and bandleader Dave Wakeling called the band “Simply smashing!” A sold-out crowd celebrated the release of their debut album “Propaganda” produced by David Simon Baker and their new music video 'Mean Curries” (avail on YouTube) was produced by Agent Ogden (Primus).

    DIGGIN DIRT

    The band began touring in the spring of 2017 throughout California and Oregon, and was met with a tremendous response. A reputation of quality original music backed by high energy performance grew around the Dirt’s name, and in turn inspired them to keep growing. A byproduct of this growth is the recently released Bedrock EP. Showing more musical maturity and a new depth of identity, the album is a true sign of more to come.
    The Dirt is more inspired than ever, and ready to bring the music to the people. With more expansive West Coast tour dates, and fresh material coming out of their preparations, the group shows no signs of slowing down as they expand their reach. Earn that paycheck, and dust off those dancing shoes because we’re looking at you tonight! Keep checking in on this funky force, and make sure to come out and groove when you happen to find them in your neck of the woods.
    You gotta dig that dirt!
