The Georgetown Orbits
The Georgetown Orbits
The Georgetown Orbits boast a heavy regimen of traditional Ska and upbeat Reggae. They have garnered much attention throughout the west coast as one of the few bands to pay tribute to the sounds of Jamaican Ska, a style which has gained notable popularity in Seattle since the band's conception in late 2004.

The Georgetown Orbits have played with such prominent names as the Skatalites, Clinton Fearon, The English Beat, Bad Manners, The Toasters, The Aggrolites, Westbound Train, Chris Murray, Lynval Golding, and Pato Banton, and a west coast tour with New York's legendary Ska group The Slackers.

The Orbits have gained international acclaim from fans of all genres for their soulful, quality style of Ska and Reggae music. Their energetic live shows have never failed to impress audiences throughout the western US and Canada.

The Seattleites
The Seattleites
The Seattleites are a Traditional Jamaican Ska band from Seattle, WA. They perform rarely but intensely, cultivating Jamaican rhythms from the 1960s alongside a jazz tradition. Bandleader and bassist Joe Kaufman performs regularly with the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, but his free time is dedicated to the Seattleites project which include some of Seattle’s finest working musicians. Although mostly instrumental, brass players Roy Brown and Bill Jones offer some tasty vocals to create a ska-jazz ensemble with dimension.
