Get Ready…MELBOURNE SKA ORCHESTRA are coming!
Since their debut release in March 2013, this 25 piece ramshackle train of upbeat goodness have been smashing audiences in Australia and New Zealand picking up awards and nominations aplenty.
Comprising many of Australia’s best musicians, the MSO are embarking on their first adventure into the northern hemisphere, performing in the UK and Canada.
Melbourne Ska Orchestra’s legendary stage performances, incorporating a 15 piece horn troupe, fronted by NICKY BOMBA (of John Butler Trio fame) are set to ignite crowds at the legendary Glastonbury Festival, Montreal Jazz Festival plus huge shows across Canada.
