Richie Stephens has announced his collaboration with a nine-man ska ensemble.
Stephens told The Gleaner the band comprises bass, guitar, keyboard, trumpet, saxophone and trombone players, two backing vocalists and a DJ. All the members were born and currently live in Salento, southern Italy.
“I met the band at a festival in Italy last year after a performance. We both did ska in our set on stage and did very well. That’s how the idea came about,” he said.
