Ska Face are back in Blackpool this weekend for an extra special show in Layton.
Resort visits have become less frequent these days for the band who are making waves around the region.
They’ve supported two-tone legends the Selecter as well as Bad Manners and Bruce Foxton from The Jam. And they’re continuing to support the Teenage Cancer Trust, having been invited to record for their third Specialized album.
Look out for their version of The Young and The Old by Madness.
Support for the project has been phenomenal with proceeds raising in excess of £50,000 so far and growing all the time.
Band member Alberto ‘The Shadow’ said: “ We get asked to do a great deal of charity work and have a policy to select a different charity to support each year.
“It’s great to be involved in such a worthy project and know that it makes a difference and we’ve selected the British Heart Foundation as our nominated charity for the next year with a big fund-raising event planned for September.”
Saturday’s gig at The Layton (the former Layton Institute) comes amid a busy time touring for the popular covers outfit. And they’ll be wanting to put on a special home town show.
Alberto said: “We’re calling it The Big One – featuring ourselves plus to other fantastic bands Jeramiah Ferrari (from Manchester) and Dirty Revolution (from Cardiff) .
“This is going to be a fantastic night and the only opportunity to see us in our home town over the next couple of months.
“It’s a great venue which holds happy memories for us .”
It is a ticket only event, priced at £7 from www.skaface.info or direct from the venue.
