AceTones

Bio

AceTones offer a superlative selection of time-honoured Jamaican classics, rare grooves and originals to satisfy connoisseurs and new listeners alike.

From 60's ska and rocksteady to reggae, dub and funk, the band infuses the irresistible grooves of Jamaican music with their own distinctive style. AceTones create an atmosphere to lure even the most unsuspecting listener onto the dancefloor. Paying tribute to the greats, the band draws inspiration from founders of the styles such as Skatalites, The Upsetters, Jackie Mittoo, Sly and Robbie and more.

AceTones is an eight-piece ensemble boasting a top-rankin' horn lineup and rocksteady rhythm section, topped off with the dynamite vocal stylings of the Mighty Jabsco.

Members of AceTones have a long standing love affair with Jamaican music and its offshoots. Having cut their teeth in the NZ ska and reggae scene performing in bands such as Skatilator, The Managers, Roofdog, Skaface Claw, Earthtone Rockers, Moisty Atsushi's Rocksteady Allstars and Full Stop, the band members combine a wealth of experience with a fresh and unique approach.
