A dedicated night for lovers of ska begins next month.

The Canary Club – the revamped Hitchin FC clubhouse will be the venue for the monthly ska, reggae and Two-Tone night.

Organiser Peter Lowry said live bands and DJ sets are being organised “to cater for the Herts’ love of good music”.

A fan of the music since he was young, Peter added: “There’s quite a market for it – there’s a lot of interest in ska in Hertfordshire. It’s a personal favourite of mine and I could see it would be appreciated not only for myself but for all those fans of the music in the area.”

The inaugural night on Saturday Febuary 18 will feature two live sets from Covered In Skas as well as Hitchin’s DJ PAL playing early reggae, rocksteady, ska and Two-Tone throughout the night.

Tickets are £5.50 in advance or £6 on the door, to book call Peter on 07590 987619.
