Bahia Social Club 832 Beech Street, NO COVER! See map
Known for their rambunctious live shows, technically
proficient horn solos and tight arrangements, The Scofflaws were one of
the top 3rd wave ska acts of the early 90’s and one of the most beloved
bands on the now-defunct Moon Ska label.
The Scofflaws early sound was characterized by strong R&B and jazz
influences as well as eclectic covers of such songs as Henry Mancini’s
“A Shot in the Dark”, Danny Elfman’s theme from “Pee Wee’s Big
Adventure”, and a scorching live rendition of The Skatalites
instrumental “Ska La Parisian”.
Despite the limited vocal abilities of the various band
members who shared the singing duties, The Scofflaws had numerous cult
favorite songs due to the offbeat lyrics and quirky vocal stylings of
Richard “Sammy” Brooks and Buford O’Sullivan on tunes such as
“Ska-La-Carte”, “Nude Beach” and “William Shatner”." -lastFM
