Welcome to the Wonderful World of Ska Toons where anything can happen and probably already has.
“It’s a big sound, and as infectious as flu. You’ll smile, then you’ll start tapping your foot. Before long, you’ll probably be skanking along.”
Ska Toons is a rocking collision of ska, funk and jazz, where Prince Buster meets Duke Ellington, The Skatalites meet Charles Mingus and The Ventures meet Don Drummond.
A solid blowing horn section of tenor, soprano sax and trombone, very groovesome rhythm section of guitar, keyboards, bass and drums together with the vocal talents culled from the Munday family band create an irresistible mix of great classic ska, skanked-up jazz instrumentals and rocking off-beat reworkings of class pop songs.
Compulsive dance music, great songs, brilliant playing, high energy and loads of fun. Ska Toons play parties, weddings, conferences and other functions, as well as their public gigs. Contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.

This is what people say:
Toons are very much an old-school ska band. This doesn’t mean they just
do ska classics: they also give the ska treatment to jazz standards and classic
pop: Charlie Parker’s Barbados and Glenn Campbell’s Wichita Lineman
all get ska-ed up along with great old-skool faves like Guns of Navarone,
The Liquidator, Occupation and Mission Impossible." Viva Lewes
"I just had my 50th birthday party and the choice of music was quite simple .... I had to have Ska Toons to play. They are my favourite get-up-and-dance music makers without which no significant birthday would be complete. I love the band and the music as much as I did at the first gig I ever went to all those years ago... .. Life affirming, fun and talented. "Book'em Danno!"
"Thanks for a great night’s entertainment last night, you created a fantastic atmosphere. We want to confirm you for our wedding too- it will really help make our wedding reception something special.”
“A huge thank you from me and from all of our very sweaty and enthusiastic dancing guests for playing brilliant music. You really made the evening and everyone had a blast!”
'You guys were great! It was so good to see young and old dancing together! I wish I could get you out to Boston!' Father of the bride
"12 weeks pregnant, stone cold sober, and I couldn't stop dancing!"
"The band were just totally amazing... I'm not really into ska, but I just loved it - they were so brilliant!"
