The Skatastrophics are a Houston based Reggae, Rocksteady and Ska band, consisting of members coming together from different bands in their local Ska scene, getting together not only out of musicianship but respect and admiration to each other’s projects, with the sole purpose of blending a elegant Reggae, Rocksteady and Ska outfit to bring the local scene together. Thus, Billy Munoz vocalist of Always Guilty brought together the Skatastrophics with a soaring horn section, hypnotizing organ sound, classic walking bass lines, rhythmic guitar with solid solo’s and a smooth voice on the mic. They create a sound unlike anything else in Houston.
The music echoes Munoz’s deep felt lyrics and soulful voice, you’re sure to enjoy the sound whether standing or dancing with a date. The Skatastrophics have had the many honors of opening for acts such as Lee “Scratch” Perry, The English Beat, The Skatalites, The Slackers, The Toasters and Sister Nancy. With their upbeat Rocksteady and smooth melodic yet seductive Reggae they create a sound that compliments their high energy live performances. The band consist of Billy Munoz (Vocalist), Jacob Garcia (Guitar), David Lopez (Bass), Alex Garcia (Sax), Dan Lopez (Trombone), Gino Garcia(Drums).
The Skatastrophics are currently working on their second studio album and have been nominated for The Houston Press Awards – Best Reggae/Ska Act of 2015. They are also planning on touring the U.S. and overseas soon to spread good vibes and share their feel good music.
