About The Band

Hailed as “the future of ska in Ireland” (Ryan Tubridy, The Late Late Show), Interskalactic have firmly marked their place as a truly unique favourite on the Irish live music scene. Adding their modern big band style to first-wave, old-school Jamaican ska, Interskalactic have brought this infectious music that first exploded worldwide with celebrations of Jamaican independence in the ‘60s back into the live music scene of today!

Interskalactic know how to keep a dance floor busy. Their upbeat set features not just their own original music - big band ska with that old-school Jamaican flavor, but also covers from classic ska artists including Prince Buster, The Skatalites and Byron Lee & the Dragonaires as well as their own ska-ified versions of popular hits from the last few decades.

Stellar live performances since the band’s formation in 2013 include:

  • RTE's The Late Late Show
  • Electric Picnic, Body&Soul, Cork Jazz, Sea Sessions Festivals
  • Opening for Madness' M.A.D.H.E.A.D. Tour in the 3 Arena Dublin and Odyssey Arena Belfast
  • Performances in prestigious venues Vicar Street and Whelan’s and at countless festivals, events, parties and venues all over the country.

With an incredible few years behind them and the release of their debut EP in March 2017, Interskalactic are set to stay on this trajectory throughout the year and beyond!
