The Reggaskas are a female fronted reggae/ska band, backed by horns, keyboard, guitar, drum and bass. Performing original, unique music, with an energetic reggae/ska vibe which is not to be matched, we have vast experience in live performances and we guarantee to entertain the crowd.
Originally from Devon, The Reggaskas were founded in 2013 by brothers Mike and Steve Bourne over a couple of pints of Guinness. Having grown up in a musical family - both parents played professionally - Mike and Steve can boast passion and depth of understanding for music with a particular affinity for reggae and ska. Lead singer Lizy Eames, a talented young singer, came back home to the South-West having completed her music degree. We grew from strength to strength as more members were recruited until the full seven piece line-up was in place, made up of some of the finest musicians in Devon. As the main influences behind The Reggaska’s unique sound, and as our name suggests, we create reggae and ska tracks in collaboration with our friends and band-mates who share our passion for the music and the creative spark to make something unique. Our line-up consists of seven of Devon’s finest musical minds: Lizy Eames; our singer and front-girl, Mike Bourne on Saxophone and Melodica, Steve ‘Fester’ Bourne on trumpet, Chris Reeves; our lead guitarist, Simon Lang on keyboard, Dave Nicholson on bass, and Harry Colridge on the drums.
