Over the past decade The Simmertones have established themselves as one of the UK’s leading authentic ska and reggae bands. These nine South West musicians regularly get packed venues and festivals jumping with their exciting and infectious live sound.
Between 2016-2018 The Simmertones’ live shows continued to reach new heights, with prestigious and well received appearances at The London International Ska Festival, The Looe Music Festival, Bestival, Camp Bestival and Madness’ House of Fun Weekender (twice).
In November 2018 Madness once again selected The Simmertones to open for them, where they impressing the crowd of 6000 with their self-penned infectious tunes and lively performance.
The band are frequently played on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music, particularly by Jo Whiley, Vanessa Feltz and Steve Lamacq, who have playlisted their songs ‘Run For Your Life’, ‘Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps’ and ‘Dr Who’.
