AN EVENING of ska, punk and indie with Little Paxton guitarist Dave Scott, and his pals is set for The Man on the Moon in Cambridge on Saturday, December 14.
Dave's band, Cosycosy is playing with top ska band, the Apocryphalites and melodic blues band The Scissors.
The Apocryphalites are a ska band from Cambridge and London who always get their audience dancing. By their third gig they were selling out venues. The music is based on 1960s Jamaican ska with classics reworked as ska, including 10CC's Dreadlock Holiday, Michael Jackson's Billie Jean, Abba's Honey Honey and Wings' Live and Let Die. The nine-piece band, including guitar, drums, saxophone, trombone and trumpet has been together for 18 months.
The Scissors formed in Summer 2006. Their set is described as spiky but slinky, jangly but danceable melodic songs.
