MNSKA is proud to announce the Tritonics from Milwaukee will be making their Twin Cities debut on Saturday, November 28. In case you haven’t checked out their Facebook page, here’s what they’re all about!
The Tritonics write, arrange and perform original music written in the Jamaican roots styles of rock steady, ska and reggae. They also cover crucial standards of those genres by artists like Alton Ellis, Delroy Wilson, Toots and the Maytalls, The Heptones, Johnny Clarke, The Valentines and The Jamaicans. In addition, The Tritonics apply a unique process they’ve dubbed “doowopification” to rock n roll classics by The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Kinks and many others. Doowopification reinterprets and revitalizes (Ital-izes!) classic rock standards, anointing them in the name of Jah with stripped down, Jamaican roots-style arrangements, one drop-centered rhythm and harmony-heavy vocals.
Supporting them are local openers Whiskey City Tango and the Skruffians!
