Bim Skala Bim formed in Boston, MA as a Ska Rock band that was influenced by the bands in England’s 2 Tone movement as well as bands such as the Clash, UB40 and Bob Marley. Bim’s infectious “Boston Blue Beat” sound—a mix of upbeat 2 Tone Ska, Rock n Roll and a pinch of Calypso—with a substantial Reggae undertone led them, together with The Toasters, to be the premier bands kickstarting the Third Wave of Ska in the 1980s. Other bands quickly followed their example resulting in a lively scene in Boston and much of the United States.


In 1997, Bim Skala Bim, The Dropkick Murphys, and The Bosstones emerged on a 50 date nationwide “Boston On The Road” tour, demonstrating the shared success of those Boston artists. One of the world’s longest-running independent bands with over twenty five years of touring and recording, Bim Skala Bim has released 9 highly acclaimed albums and has been the winner of 10 Boston Music Awards, 8 Boston Phoenix Reader’s Poll awards as well Boston Magazine’s “Best of Boston” twice. In March of 2013, Boston Business Journal rated Bim Skala Bim’s Bones album #19 in their “Boston Top 40 Albums of All Time” list.

    Ska Revival

    We got bored, wrote some songs about zombies, awkward situations, homeless people and our weird friends. We've all been friends since early high school and even before then for some of us, so friendship comes before anything else in this band. It's easier to make fun music with people you like than forcing a group to come together and trying to make something work. So here we are - we're very approachable, so if you see us at a show, playing Frisbee, or anywhere else, say hi. Maybe we'll hang out, who knows?!?!
