With the music industry coming out of an punk-ska saturation era, GO JIMMY GO truly come across as a breath of fresh air! Entertaining the Hawaiian islands with their wonderful style of harmonius ska/rock-steady since 1996, GO JIMMY GO has gained loyal friends and supporters worldwide through appearances on traditional-ska-compilations like ROOTS BRANCH & STEM Vol 2, WEST COAST CRONICLES Vol 1, and most recently on Jump Up’s SMASH YOUR RADIO VOL 2 sampler. Only a seasoned group of musicians could create music so smooth and sophisticated, so it shouldn’t surpirse you that GO JIMMY GO includes members from seminal Hawaiian ska band RED SESSION as well as the lead vocalist from California’s legendary DYNAMIC PRESSURE. Their sound: the smoothest ska/rock-steady heard since Hepcat, but with a Hawaiian flare added in. We’re not talkin’ ukelele’s, but gentle Island-inspired horn solos, gentle guitar licks, and SERIOUS soulful vocals with back-up harmonies that are to die for. Over the years, GO JIMMY GO has shared the stage with eveyone from Hepcat, Ocean 11, Seespot, Fishbone, Dave Wakeling, Goldfinger, Dance Hall Crashers….on their recent Summer California tour they toured with Chicago’s DEAL’S GONE BAD, and played with The ISRAELITES, The INCITERS at a sold out Whisky-A-Go Go show! The buzz is out, orignal Jamaican ska is back and stronger than ever before, and GO JIMMY GO is leading the way.
