Skaraoke Taipei Taiwan


簡介
台灣融合管樂的指標性SKA樂團
Since: 2007
From: Taipei, Taiwan
Music Type: Ska, Rock Steady, Reggae, Latin, Swing, Jazz, Lounge...etc
台 灣屬於熱帶島嶼國家,地處於東亞,四周環海,有著先天的優勢,包容性高、音樂元素多元豐富,其音樂環境理應像這先天條件般地充滿無限可能。然,縱使這些年 台灣的音樂節與搖滾樂團如雨後春筍般地在本島各地四處開花。而相當適合島國熱情曲風的雷鬼和Ska,卻依舊始終未能與廣大喜愛音樂的朋友有充分的認識與接 觸。
2007年,Ska音樂還不是非常普遍的艱困環境下,在團長Thomas熱情的呼朋引伴下,與幾個志同道合的樂手們,組織了台灣第一個編制完整的Ska樂團,期待屬於這個島國的Ska音樂能夠逐漸成形,亦步亦趨地向外推廣,進而讓台灣人喜歡。
SKARAOKE 於2008年4月在墾丁的「春天吶喊」音樂節首次亮相,博得全場觀眾的掌聲及喝采,成為台灣獨一無二的指標性Ska樂團!之後,各地邀約不斷,常常能在台 灣各地的Live Houses 及音樂節看見他們的身影。他們總是穿戴著紳士帽,窄版領帶及西裝吊帶,就如同老派的爵士樂手般,彷彿讓人回到了以前的爵士經典,卻又有著他們特別的島國搖 擺風味!
SKARAOKE=SKA + KARAOKE
其團名的靈感來自於臺灣及日本庶民流行的歌唱文化 " KARAOKE(卡啦OK)"
再加上團員共同喜愛的曲風 "SKA" (源自於1960年代牙買加的島嶼流行音樂)
這兩個元素加起來就成了 "SKARAOKE"
顧名思義;就是希望SKARAOKE的音樂,就像是在邀請大家一起來個 "Ska的卡啦OK" PARTY一樣,輕鬆詼諧、溢滿歡樂又有那麼一點俗豔!

Taiwan's very own unique Ska Orchestra
Since: 2007
From: Taipei, Taiwan
Music Type: Ska, Rock Steady, Reggae and Latin, Swing, Jazz, Lounge ...etc
Taiwan is a country that belongs to the family of tropical islands in East Asia, surrounded by the sea. It has inherent advantages, inclusive, diverse, and rich in musical elements. The musical environment under these congenital conditions can be full of infinite possibilities. Of course, many of Taiwan's music festivals and rock bands have mushroomed and blossomed in various parts of the island and around the world. The island of Taiwan is quite suitable for the genre of reggae and Ska, but it still has not been able to gain recognition, understanding, and engagement with the majority.
In 2007, Ska music was not very well-known in this musical environment. Skaraoke's leader and trombonist, Thomas Hu, gathered his friends and a few like-minded musicians and organized Taiwan's first complete Ska Orchestra, Skaraoke, hoping that this island-style music of ska, can gradually fall into shape, and grow among the people of Taiwan.
SKARAOKE's debut at Kenting's Spring Scream music festival in April 2008 recieved the applause and respect of the audience, and became the premier Ska Orchestra of Taiwan! After that, people started to see their names all over Taiwan's Live Houses and Music Festivals. They always show up in fedoras, suits, and ties, just as the old-school jazz musicians did, Like gentlemen, bring the people back to the sounds of classic jazz, swingin' beats, and with their own special island-style twist!
SKARAOKE = SKA + KARAOKE
Their band name was inspired by the common past-time of the people of Taiwan and Japan. The popular singing culture of the "KARAOKE".
Added to the front of the word, is the band's favorite genre of music, "SKA" (derived from the popular music of 1960s Jamaica).
These two elements, placed together, became "SKARAOKE"!
As the name implies, SKARAOKE music is like a karaoke party with friends together doing the Ska, mellow, fun, exciting, and sometimes even outrageously loud and crazy!
"In the rough 'n tumble world of Taiwanese ska, Skaraoke have emerged as undisputed champs. They've been led to the top by bandleader Thomas Hu, a picture of gentlemanly charms in his fedora hat, skinny tie, suspenders and of course his trusty trombone." -Urban Nomad
"Skaraoke is one of the few ska bands to rock the Taiwan scene! Formed in April of 2007, Skaraoke has participated in numerous events and shows all over the island of Taiwan and has several shows and concerts lined up for the upcoming seasons. Skaraoke's music blends island style ska, rock steady, reggae, latin, swing, and rock, into a cocktail of danceable rhythms and catchy chorus lines. Grab your dancing shoes because this is an act you surely can't miss!" -Asian Music Guide


The time of the concerts is 20.30h.  and the ticket price is 250 with a beer or soda included.
