This 9-Piece band hails from Barnsley in South Yorkshire fusing together a modern twist on the ska genre; incorporating swing grooves and a punk ideology taking influence from a wide range of bands from ‘The Clash’ to ‘Glen Miller’ and all that lies in-between, a sound which they have affectionately termed, ‘swing-core ska/punk’. The band consists of Tim Rivers (Tenor Sax), Alex Smith (Drums & Percussion), Stephan Bainbridge (Trombone), Dave Moulin (Vocals & Guitar), Graeme Kershaw (Guitar), Jamie Smith (Vocals & Bass), Dave Pantinuchi (Trumpet), Richard Dean (Keyboards), Andrew Summers (Trumpet) and Chloe Gray (Baritone/Alto Sax). Over the past 4 years since their formation, the band has built up a reputation for being one of the hardest working acts on the UK ska scene, entrancing the audience with their frantic stage show and sassy live swagger. Notching up over a 100 gigs a year, the band has built up a strong and loyal fan base from across the UK and Europe. Catch-it Kebabs have 2 albums already available: ‘Skankin’ Sausages (Do the Dog/Feet First, 2004) and ‘Return of the Kebabulance’ (Riot/Feet First, 2006). Although both albums received rave reviews, it was the maturity of ROTK which turned heads in the media. Brandon Allin from the biggest US online punk-zine, ‘Absolute Punk’ wrote: “A strong and distinct, and equally a wonderful release”. Recently the band had a track from their latest CD used on an international ska compilation, Ska is Dead. Their track, ‘Bluelight’, features alongside some of the worlds biggest ska acts, including ‘The Planet Smashers’, ‘Voodoo Glowskulls’ and ‘The Toasters’ The future is looking rosy, with their 3rd album currently in the demo stages; it is looking likely that the CD will be released in spring 2008. Blending more Latin and Calypso stylings than the previous records, the album is sure to be a bouncy party album from start to finish.
