Summer Concert Series presented by Ryan Homes | The Players Band
August 27@7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
On the heels of the mid-90’s ska revival, The Players Band (TPB) was founded in 1999, drawn in by the infectious rhythms and horn-heavy ska sounds originating in Jamaica in the late 1950s. Over 20 years and 500+ shows later, Baltimore’s ska ambassadors continue blending the best of Jamaican ska and reggae with American rock and roll. With 9 to 11 members, depending on the night, TPB is an amalgam of accomplished musicians, including current members of DC Ska legends The Pietasters, Baltimore’s Jah Works, Bumpin Uglies, Unity Reggae, Scotch Bonnets, Kill Lincoln, and even California’s punk rockers Left Alone. TPB has had the privilege of opening for true legends;from the originators of ska-Grammy Winning Toots & the Maytals and The Skatalites to Rock & Roll Hall of Fame’s Joe Strummer, to the B-52s, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, English Beat, Fishbone, to the Isley Brothers.
