The Gangsters Biography
The Gangsters are a 5-piece 2-Tone band who keep the tradition of black and white alive with what can only be described as the ultimate 2-Tone Experience. Dressed from head to toe in their very own ‘Gangsters’ gear, the band look as good as they sound. From the very first beat your feet will be tapping and before you know it, you’ll be on the dancefloor ‘skanking’ to the sound of The Gangsters.
The Gangsters set themselves apart from other ‘tribute’ bands as they don’t pay homage to a particular band, but the whole 2-Tone genre. The ethos of The Gangsters is to play the songs in the style of the recordings that dominated the charts in the 80’s. As you would expect The Gangsters play the floor fillers from Madness, The Specials, Bad Manners, The Beat to name but a few! With the chart topping 2-Tone songs, exciting live shows and a sound that encapsulates the best of what 2-Tone has to offer, there’s no doubt that The Gangsters are rightfully considered to be the ultimate 80’s 2-Tone Experience.
Every year The Gangsters are packing venues around the country, headlining at festivals and providing entertainment at events too numerous to mention. The Gangsters highlight of 2019 was appearing as part of the line up on the ‘Throwback 80’s Festival at Sea’ where they literally ‘rocked the boat’.
So, if you like 2-Tone and Ska, you’ll love The Gangsters!
