WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT BIG SKA BAND:

"...Big Ska has played at a few of our fundraising events and they always help us draw a crowd!  They are so versatile and have tailored their play list to suit our event needs.  At our recent carpool cinema, we were showing a Western and asked if Big Ska could do some country music.  They were amazing in that style as well!  It was so much fun as an opening to the film.  We can't wait to dance at our Gala this year to the music of Big Ska!..."
- Veronica Coyne, Black Bear Film Festival

"I hired Big Ska Band to perform at the venue that I own, UpFront Exhibitions. The group did a great job entertaining the audience with a variety of music styles from Roots Reggae to Jazz to Classics like Cab Calloway's "Minnie The Moocher." I intend to invite them back in future." 
Gordon Graff, UpFront Exhibitions

"... Wonderful band! Big Ska had the crowd dancing all night long..."  The Smiths, Milford PA

"...Commencement would not be the same without The Big Ska Band performing..."
- Purchase College

"...Big Ska crushed it today...!!!"
- Dave Wallace, Milford Performer

"Dr. Joe Ferry gifted author, filmmaker, musician, painter, educator, producer…I love his urban abstract “astral” paintings, broad and diverse interests and mastery of the arts! A very “giving” supporter and contributor to the arts. Joe serves up the Best SKA magic I've experienced. GET UP! Get on your feet and LET IT GO! My personal favorite is his Psychedelic Reggae Dub. I get lost in it and temporarily escape this world for a well needed and rewarding two hour trip!  His various iterations of the Big Ska Band are always punctuated  with the best music talent available. I never miss a show!
- Jerry Reganess
Milford PA Artist

"...Big Ska Band is GREAT! We Love You Guys."
- Paul Deninno, Bashakill Vineyards
