Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra
Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra
Western Standard Time Ska Orchestra is a raw, powerful and in your face musical experience. This massive 20-piece group of All Star musicians is a spectacle to both watch and hear. With a horn section three times bigger than most other ska groups, WST breaks barriers and expands your imagination for what’s possible. The groove is hard hitting and will definitely make you dance all night!

Just off of their whirlwind tour in front of sellout crowds in Mexico, Canada and throughout Europe, they are stoked to play in front of their hometown crowd. They are super excited to feature the amazing Greg Lee from Hepcat on vocals as well as guys from The Aggrolites, Beastie Boys, Gogol Bordello, See Spot, Mobtown, Kinston 10, The Debonaires and many more. This group of Jamaican Jazz gunslingers is rebranding the music of yesteryear and propelling it into the future!
The Allentons
The Allentons
As the waves of SKA ebb and flow, the Allentons have endured as a band
known for their high energy hits and party-making atmosphere, soulfully
jamming out their brand of traditional Ska for their loyal fans and
for over 20 years. Founded in 1994, the Allentons are an integral part of
the Los Angeles traditional ska movement. Overtime they shared the stage
with notable Los Angeles Ska and reggae acts such as Hepcat, Ocean 11,
Mobtown, See Spot, Ocean 11, and many others, and entertained fans
throughout the US, Mexico and Canada. They have served as the backing band
for Jamaican Ska legends Eric “Monty” Morris ("Sammy Dead Oh", "Oil in My
Lamp") and Rico Rodriguez ("Africa", "A Message to you Rudy"). Their music
is available via two studio albums (Steady Beat Records), various singles
on compilations, and scores of bootleg video recordings floating throughout
cyberspace. While the core members of the Allentons remain unchanged over
the years, the lineup has included countless members of the Los Angles Ska
family. Many current and former Allentons members are members of today’s
top reggae and ska acts. Ask any member of the Allentons why after 20
years the band is still alive and kicking, and you’ll get one answer… WE
