The home straight!

The Night Cat, Melbourne – Oct 12th 2018 –  Photo by Live Pixel Photography

We have been busy all year giving the world One Year Of Ska…One song per week…That’s 52 releases!
Song number 44 just dropped and we are super busy getting the last eight tunes together in the studio.

We’ve had some great shows over the past few months – Gympie Muster, Tanks Cairns and a hometown show at The Night Cat. Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention that we were also nominated for an ARIA!

With silly season around the corner, it’s time to celebrate this epic year of music with some Melbourne gigs.
Get on down, shake your thing and journey with us through the year.

Dec 14th – The Espy, St Kilda
Dec 15th – Chelsea Heights Hotel, Aspendale Gardens

MSO 52 reaches the half way mark!!

Wow! 27 songs down and more to come! We’ve paid tribute to the music that inspired the conception of MSO with 13 Ska Classics, we’ve continued a grand ska tradition with our renditions of 13 TV & Movie Themes and now it’s time for some uncut MSO originals!

Here is the first cab off the rank and it’s a corker if we do say so ourselves! Enjoy the Perfect Storm…

Melbourne Ska Orchestra presents a new adventure following their international tours and ARIA Award win.

Paying respect to the Jamaican Sound System phenomenon, where artists would record and release new tracks on a weekly basis, the Orchestra has committed to doing the same.  For one whole year. 52 songs. 52 Weeks. One Year Of Ska!    

 
It’s a mammoth task. It’s a Big Band. Get Ready.
