Knock Blockers Biography

We are the Knock Blockers, the #1 ska band based out of Colorado Springs* with members from all over the country brought together by our love for all waves and forms of ska. Living in a world with EDM and boring pop music, the music scene needs a fresh injection of upbeat ska and punk. We have numerous influences including Reel Big Fish, The Skatalites, Jimmy Cliff, The Specials, The Toasters, and Less than Jake. Ska has always involved the combination of various styles of music with the core Jamaican sound, and The Knock Blockers continue this tradition when writing originals with the classic two tone and 3rd wave sounds but blending in other influences such as blues and rockabilly.

Our members have all played (and currently play) with various groups and many different genres in addition to ska. To have a little fun, we all go by certain aliases: Andy Gorilla on bass, Doc Von Krantz on keys, Mr. Soup Sandwich on the drums, Rocket Surgeon on guitar, and the collective Loafer Brigade in the horn section (bone, sax, and trumpet). Each alias has a special meaning to its bearer; for example the Loafer Brigade is united in their choice of footwear on daily basis.
