The Skalars formed in 1993 and toured extensively from 1995-1999, bringing their horn-driven soul-inflected ska sound from St Louis, MO to the four corners of the US. After many early lineup changes, the band’s core solidified around Jessica Butler on lead vocals and tenor sax, Evan Shaw on vocals and trombone, and a rhythm section of Ethan D’Ercole, Will Horton, Eric Ottens and Dave Sharma on guitar, bass, keys and drums respectively. The band’s co-founder and original namesake, Isaac Green, gave up the touring life early to focus on booking and promoting, but his drive and uncompromising vision molded the group into one of the tightest touring units of the era. The Skalars released two albums through New York City’s Moon Ska Records: “Schoolin With The Skalars” (1996) and “Change Up” (1999).
Will I be able to sit down?
We usually have seating but it's limited and is first come first serve. Don't worry, though – you will want to be on your feet once the music starts!
Are shows wheelchair accessible?
All shows at Blueberry Hill in the Duck Room are wheelchair accessible via an elevator in the Piano Room hallway. A small percentage of shows are in the Elvis Room, which is not accessible.
