Ska / Calypso / Soul / Jazz
Seven piece band reproducing old school sounds of the Caribbean, ska, reggae, soul and jazz, with rockin back line and sweet horns. What's not to love?!
The Castaways Led by trombonist Mel Howard (formerly Freedom Masses & Creation Roots amongst many others), The Castaways brings you Ska, Rocksteady and a touch of Reggae fused with more than a little Jazz.
If you love the music of the Studio One days from the likes of the Skatalites, Don Drummond, Desmond Dekker, Toots and the Maytals and many more, you’ll love The Castaways!
