The Skatalites – Hastings College dance at The Dolphin Ballroom 1st March 1968

Catherine Ireland… Love them

Pete Fisher… Probably would have been down the youth club back then (can’t remember which one) dancing to quite a few ska hits with my mate and his mod/turning skinhead friends…weird and pretty sad that such a cool fashion/music scene morphed into the hooligan thing…played on the same festival bill as the Skatalites a few times in the 2000s, so got to see them live at last…

Mick O’Dowd… Such a good band. Underated. Saw them on Pier on an all-nighter. Fab! Still going today.

Alan Pepper… Wow ! Love to have been there . Wonder how many witnessed this gig ?

Chris Wilson… I was there. The College also had the Skatalites at a Christmas gig held in the restaurant area at the college, probably Xmas 1967. Both gigs were amazing, hot, sweaty, great. I saw them at Concord 2 in Brighton about a year or so ago too. Brilliant band even though most of the surviving members must be in their 70s/80s!!
