Monkey Spanner 8 Piece Ska Band W/ Special Guests @ Brightside

Following the success of their 2023 Australian SKA DANCE CRAZE tour, 8 piece 2 Tone Ska enthusiasts, Monkey Spanner are returning to Brisbane in 2024 for another foot-stomping SKA celebration.

Playing hits from iconic 2 Tone bands like The Specials, Madness, Bad Manners, The Beat, The Selecter, and The Bodysnatchers, their repertoire also extends to reggae royalties such as Toots & The Maytals, with a dash of Classic Rocksteady thrown in for good measure.

Join the band to celebrate one of the finest subcultures of all time. Expect good vibes, great music, and a showcase of fashion and dance that will transport you back to the good old days. Whether you were there in the late 70's or a newcomer to the scene, this promises to be a rare old sweat-up not to be missed!
