Once upon a time a musical revolution hit the UK which turned the country into a sea of black and white chequers. Bands like The Specials, Madness, Bad Manners ruled the charts, dominated Top of the Pops and inspired a generation.
The Gangsters, who took their name from The Specials track, keep the tradition of black and white alive with what can only be described as the ultimate Ska tribute band. The Gangsters ethos is to play the songs in the style of the original band. So, as you would expect The Gangsters play the very best from Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat, D ... exys and from the very first beat the floor is filled!
With the very best Ska and 2 Tone songs, exciting live shows and a sound that encapsulates the best of what ska music has to offer, there's no doubt that The Gangsters are rightfully considered one of the very best Ska/2 Tone tribute bands around.
The set list varies from gig to gig, but includes a selection from some of the following artists: The Specials, Madness, Bad Manners, The Beat, The Bodysnatchers, Dexy's Midnight Runners. We also incorporate some of our own songs.
The Gangsters have been 'on the road' for the last 25 years, filling dance floors and providing an unrivalled tribute the very best of the Ska and 2 Tone scene.
The band comprises of Andy Gangster - Lead Vocals & Guitar, Mark Gangster - Sax, Steve Gangster - Bass and Backing Vocals, Mickey Gangster - Drums and Backing Vocals, Luke Gangster - Keyboards.
In 2018 The Gangsters are celebrating their 25th year 'on the road' over that time the band has gigged around the UK in a variety of venues, far to many to mention individually - but our gigs have always been very busy and because of our following and the crowd we attract we have had to stop playing in some of the smaller, more intimate venues.
In February 2018, we are venturing back into the studio to record some new songs and plan to release our NEW EP in March/April.
In May 2018, we are appearing on the Back to the 80's Cruise (on the Royal Caribbean 'Navigator of the Seas'). Other ac ... ts include: Tony Hadley, Kim Wilde, Belinda Carlisle, ABC to name but a few.
Our 25th Anniversary tour already includes a number of big gigs besides the cruise and we already have bookings for several festivals and other gigs. We are a very busy band and our diary is filling up fast!
