Every Friday hoards of people descend on the venue for the Ska night “Skootananny” for the mega Live Ska party night to see awesome live ska bands and to have a dance.

This Friday 26 March, The Hootananny will be rocked by two great Ska bands, The Evidents and headliners Intensified this will be an awesome night with lots of dancing and energy. The Evidents are a new 7 piece Ska band from London who play 2 tone, trad and thridwave with rock and a hint of reggae. Intensified have an irresistible dance beat, with original ska and reggae, superbly crafted tunes, corporate music for the white boy ska/reggae generation. This gig is a must see for ska fans!

The Hootananny is my favourite bar, it has such a great atmosphere, especially on a Friday night. Hopefully the place will be jumping this Friday, Intensified are amazing and The Evidents sound pretty sweet. I’m gona be all over that dance floor 🙂

I went to this gig and The Evidents were amazing.
