Also headlining, The Skatalites formed in 1963 in Jamaica and are pioneers of the ska movement. Their best-known songs were recorded between 1963 and 1965, including “Guns of Navarone.” After splitting up in 1965, the band reformed in 1983 and received a Grammy nomination for the 1994 album Hi-Bop Ska: The 30th Anniversary Recording. In 1996, the band received their second Grammy nomination for Greetings From Skamania.
