Esperanza

Norhern Ska Face is proud to present our first Event at the Ainsty York on 5th May. It gives us great pleasure to announce this will be headlined by Scotish Ska sensation Esperanza with support from Leeds ska/punk band the Platitudes. This will be a free event so it would be great to see as many of you

as possible.
Esperanza are a nine-piece ska collective from Glasgow famed for live shows where their infectious rhythm has the crowd involuntarily jumping in time. In several hectic years of gigging around Scotland and beyond, they have honed and perfected a high-tempo set, with superb self-penned songs, until there isn't an ounce of fat left on it.

The quality of the band’s live shows has led to them being increasingly in demand: playing at the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony; festivals up and down the country; and sharing stages with some of the biggest names in ska, punk and reggae, including Toots and the Maytals, The Skatalites, Bad Manners, The Beat, The Selecter, Neville Staple, The Undertones, Fishbone and The Toasters.

"Esperanza are more at home on Jamaica Street than on Bob Marley's native island, which is perhaps why there's urban grit in amongst the Caribbean sunshine of their debut album, Permanent Ska. The Scottish Specials? Indeed, and they've now recaptured the energy of their gigs." SUNDAY HERALD

"Highlights included Scottish seven-piece Esperanza’s snappy, brass-buoyed ska." THE SCOTSMAN
