The Berlin band Blechreiz was not only one of the tone-setting pioneers of the German ska scene in the eighties. Founded in 1983 in Berlin-Lankwitz as a school band, they celebrated many good parties with a large audience, but never wanted to turn professional. They are all older now, but also a bit more rocking, which suits their songs very well.

The band Vespa belongs to the Polish ska pioneers. For over 25 years they have been mixing Jamaican rhythms with swing, soul and rock'n'roll. Their retro style, 4-piece horn section, singing girl and more than abstract interludes between songs have found fans all over the world.

The Unlimiters are also a ska band from Berlin, formed by members of the German ska band The Essentials. Their music is influenced by both the early years of ska and its later revival in the 2-Tone era. The whole thing is skillfully mixed with sounds of the genres soul, surf and dub.
