Bim Skala Bim

Bim Skala Bim formed in Boston as a ska punk band that was influenced by the bands in England’s 2 tone movement as well as artists such as the Clash, UB40 and Bob Marley. Bim’s “Boston Blue Beat” sound, a mix of upbeat 2 tone ska, rock ‘n’ roll and calypso with a substantial reggae undertone, made them, along with The Toasters, the premier bands kickstarting the third wave of ska in the 1980s. Other bands quickly followed their example resulting in a lively scene in Boston and much of the United States.
In 1997, Bim Skala Bim, the Dropkick Murphys, and the Mighty Mighty Bosstones embarked on a 50-date nationwide “Boston on the Road” tour.
Since their start in 1983, Bim Skala Bim released nine albums and has been the winner of ten Boston Music Awards and eight Boston Phoenix Reader’s Poll awards, as well as Boston magazine’s “Best of Boston” twice. In March 2013, Boston Business Journal rated Bim Skala Bim’s “Bones” album #19 in their “Boston Top 40 Albums of All Time” list.
Bim Skala Bim took a hiatus in 2002 but reformed to record a new album titled Chet’s Last Call, released late 2013.
