Formed in 2009, Battle-Ska Galactica has fast become New Zealand’s premier ska band. With their debut album, ‘Everybody’s Got An Opinion’, the band is set to take the New Zealand music scene by storm with their infectious mix of Reggae, Jazz, Rock, and of course Ska, Ska, Ska!

Comprised of some of Wellington’s finest musicians, the band has been working overtime, skankin it on dance floors up and down the country, and reestablishing the popularity of ska music in New Zealand with a vengeance, one rude boy and girl at a time.

A national album release tour is in the works for later this year, and with the band promising highly energetic performances and a truly original sound, they are one act not to be missed.

Battle-Ska Galactica are Saali Marks (Vocals/Guitar), Dayle Jellyman (Vocals/Keys), Frankie Curac (Vocals/Sax), Mat Enright (Trumpet), Damian Forlong (Trombone), Steve Swanson (Drums), and John Downes (Bass).

New Zealand’s up and coming party band is set to explode on the scene! For more info, tour and gig dates check them out on Facebook.
