Roddy Radiation is the world-renowned legendary lead guitarist for The Specials, and he's coming to your town! Formed in 2003, The Skabilly Rebels rose from the ashes of The Specials and continued the course of blending Ska and Punk with Roddy’s signature Rockabilly guitar work. Their sound is steeped in the cool of the 1950's-80’s era, and the rhythms come down on you with an all-out Blues Attack. The Skabilly Rebels are sure to get the crowd moving! 
As a hit songwriter, Roddy’s creations have been featured on movie and television soundtracks and commercials across the globe. Songs like “Concrete Jungle", "Rat Race" and "Hey, Little Rich Girl" were recently used in the BBC’s hit series “This Town.” His contribution to modern music is immense, as he single-handedly brought about the Ska Punk movement, while he also helped to create the world’s fascination with post-Jamaican music, but have been covered by artists like Tim Timebomb (Rancid), and Amy Winehouse.

MONKEY is a 5 piece high-energy organ driven, Ska/Reggae group from the SF Bay Area. Their intense live shows and rock-steady rhythms not only get the crowds dancing, it has won them several awards, like the prestigious California Music Award!

MONKEY has 4 full-length albums, and has also been featured on over 25 compilations, video games and film soundtracks, including the independent horror-comedy Russ Meyer tribute “Pervert the Movie” on Stag Films.

MONKEY has toured the U.S., Europe, Great Britain, Canada, & Mexico.

MONKEY has supported world class acts like: Bad Manners, The Specials, The English Beat, The Skatalites, Fishbone, The Slackers, Hepcat and many more...
