Take one part ska, add one part Frank Sinatra, shake well over high-energy, good-natured fun, and you have Skanatra! What? "Lady is a Tramp" done up as a rousing ska number? Oh, yes! Not only do these beer-swilling, vintage suit- Fedora hat-wearing musicians revive Sinatra's classics, they do it with astonishing free wheeling exhuberance

Overview

Take one part ska, add one part Frank Sinatra, shake well over high-energy, good-natured fun, and you have Skanatra! What? "Lady is a Tramp" done up as a rousing ska number? Oh, yes! Not only do these beer-swilling, vintage suit- Fedora hat-wearing musicians revive Sinatra's classics, they do it with astonishing free wheeling exhuberance. Hailing from Sinatra's home town of Hoboken, NJ, Skanatra's fresh approach to the somewhat overdone ska/swing genre is enthusiastic and addictive. This ten-track debut combines lounge sensibility with slick musicianship and style. Anyone with a soft spot for 'Ol Blue Eyes and ska will love this offering. It's just brisk, baby!
