About Ska Island:
Over the last several years, an all-star collection of musicians from around the Salish Sea have been making the long, beautiful journey to idyllic Lopez Island to explore the roots of ska, reggae, and rocksteady. The talented and experienced crew features Johnny Toulouse (Guitar), Matt "Mash" Nash (Sax), Pat Doran (Sax), Orion Lackey (Keys), Richard Brown (Drums), J'aime Cordova (Percussion and Vocals), Kevin "Zed" Zelenak (Bass & band manager) and Andy "Mr Cakes" Codrington (Trombone, Vocals, band leader & musical director). The group began playing shows on Lopez Island under Zed's "Lopez Underground" production brand - a project bull-headedly focused on reviving the live music scene on the island in a post-pandemic world - and has since expanded territory to include gigs throughout the PNW as well as backing up other regional acts, including popular Seattle reggae artist Adrian Xavier.
