Skaboro played a featured gig at my musical showcase at the Nags Head in Angel on January 27th 2019. As soon as they took to the stage, I knew I was in Reggae heaven. They completely brought the house down with their powerful, magical Reggae and Ska tunes. It was a night I will never forget! - Eran Karniel
