Melbourne Ska Orchestra

If you were lucky enough to catch this juggernaut ensemble as part of Cairns Festival in 2016 then you already know this is an orchestra with a difference. Formed in 2003 and touring with over 20 members, Melbourne Ska Orchestra (MSO) contains some of Australia’s finest musicians and performers. Led and directed by the energetic and charismatic Nicky Bomba (John Butler Trio, Bomba, Bustamento), they are a force to be reckoned with.

From Montreal to New York, Istanbul to London and with the approval of Reggae and Ska pioneers like Stranger Cole, Owen Gray, Carlos Malcolm, Ranking Roger and Neville Staples, to name a few, the MSO resonates with audiences worldwide – young and old.

Witnessing Melbourne Ska Orchestra live is explosive and infectious. With a distinctive take on the Ska genre, they continue to wow audiences all over the world, and now after two long years, they’re coming back to Cairns with their wildest show to date!

Now MSO bring their ‘52 Songs – One Year Of Ska’ show to Cairns – so style up, shine your scooter and get your dancing shoes on because MSO know how to make you move.

Sell out national shows, multiple major festival appearances, three huge international tours and a host of awards and nominations including an ARIA Award for their second album Sierra-Kilo-Alpha, 2018 sees MSO launch their biggest project yet… a mighty feat of releasing one song per week for the whole of the year – for those playing along at home, that’s 52 songs!
