Are you ready to dance??? Payomet presents an evening of ska and reggae with legendary Jamaican act, THE SKATALITES!
 
Formed in 1964, the Skatalites helped pioneer the sound that would eventually become reggae. They have backed musical greats such as Toots and the Maytals, The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff and Desmond Dekker as well as string of hit singles of their own. The Skatalites were one of the biggest influences on the ska revival scene of the late 70's which gave rise to the English Beat and the Specials.
