In '94, the world was blissfully unaware of the impending "third wave" of ska. A motley crew of diehard Montreal mods and rudies, musicians all, decided that their town, and by extension their nation, needed a lesson in how old-school ska was done. That meant a solid brass section, warm organ sounds, spy-flick guitar licks and rock-steady rhythms. They called
themselves the Kingpins, and in matters of traditional ska party music, they were! They have become a leading party band for Montreal - and Canada.
Montreal's Kingpins serve up a tasty variety of ska like no one else does! From the early 60's surf/spy licks to the trad rocksteady grooves followed by a modern take using breakbeats and synthesized sounds, there's something for everyone!
