The Red Stripes

The Red Stripes
The Red Stripes are Hong Kong’s premier Ska band and have been playing to packed audiences all over Asia.

Their brand of Ska from a vintage era features a full 10 piece band and hail originally from the UK, Canada and Australia. Over the past six years they have played festivals and shows around Asia including Singapore, Tokyo, Osaka, Taipei, China, Kuala Lumpur, Indonesia, Seoul and London. They have performed at top events in Hong Kong and as backing to Neville Staple and Roddy Radiation (The Specials), and supported the likes of Roy Ellis, Keith and Tex, The Toasters, The Skatalites, From The Jam and Johnny Osbourne amongst others.

After releasing their debut 10 track album 'In The Ska East' Hong Kong with legendary Ska vocalist, writer and producer Sean ‘Cavo’ Dinsmore’ from New York's third wave Ska band The Toasters at the helm the band received critical acclaim being named in the top 20 albums of 2020 by 'Do The Dog' skazine. The album also features special guest vocals from The Specials original frontman Neville Staple. The band have featured tracks on Specialized Records tribute to Trojan Records and 2 Tone.

In 2019 the band went into legendary Avon Studios in Hong Kong and recorded their latest album 'Made In Hong Kong' with top recording artist and producer King Zepha at the helm; recorded on vintage equipment to create an authentic Ska sound that blends elements of Soul, Dub, Reggae and Rocksteady. The band have been asked to perform at the 2020 London International Ska Festival in April and will be touring Asia later in the year.
