Ska fans from Orlando and all over Florida converged at Wills for this incredible show! Pangolin- kicked up the energy immediately and got the place moving, Flying Raccoon Suit delivered their Mississippi Ska sound to an eager Orlando crowd, JT - never thought I could LMAO while dancing- JT' s impressionistic style reminded everyone the purpose of being there was FUN, and literally brought the crowd into his set! CONTROL THIS!- raised the roof! As always, Control This! brought it home with their own Ska Rocksteady Beat and had the entire crowd moving and singing to the very end- this show was an incredible vibe, and HIGHLIGHTED THAT FLA SKA LIVES AND THRIVES IN ORLANDO!

Inity Rebel out if the gate with blazing original tunes- toots and the maytals covers, and a punked up redemption song- Dale hermanos! Trinidad Suave cranked in the core Los Angeles vibe Fuakata- brought Florida edge and rocked 'a message to you' and their strong SOUND! CONTROL THIS in finale kept everyone moving until the end- proving again that Orlando jams together- and Control This can always add melody to the madness! A great show! Wish it was tonight.....again!

About Control This

Control This! is Orlando's hottest ska, rocksteady & reggae band. After touring the globe for 9+ years with 2-tone ska legends The Toasters (NYC), sax player and lead singer Jeff Richey decided to re-discover the root of his passion for Jamaican music by starting a traditional ska and early reggae band. By focusing on Jamaican oldies and filling the band with players of diverse musical backgrounds, Control This! has developed a unique and identifiable sound. From the early sounds of the Skatalites, to the bubbling and bouncing sounds of rocksteady, to the easy rocking sounds of lover's rock, Control This! touches on all the nuances of early Jamaican music. Audiences can look forward to original music from the band's debut album, 'Long Road' on Anti-Authority Records as well as covers from The Skatalites, Dennis Brown, Gregory Isaacs & The Clash. controlthis.bandcamp.com http://www.youtube.com/controlthisorlando http://soundcloud.com/controlthis https://twitter.com/ControlthisFL http://www.reverbnation.com/controlthis Orlando's hottest ska, rocksteady & reggae group!
