The beloved Melbourne Ska Orchestra have unveiled their new single Good Days Bad Days – a showstopper of a track lifted from their most recent album One Year Of Ska – the box set album that just saw them take out the 2019 ARIA Award for Best World Music Album.  To celebrate, the epic 25 piece band have announced a huge national tour, which will see them hitting up metropolitan and regional cities across the country. The group will wrap up the tour with a massive hometown show at Forum Melbourne. 

Melbourne Ska Orchestra are a force to be reckoned with when it comes to the stage.  Audiences will be blown away by up to 25 musicians performing at a time, and the joyous, energetic vibe of a Melbourne Ska Orchestra gig is one that must be seen to be believed.  Multi-instrumentalist and band leader Nicky Bomba enthuses, “With so many band members, we’re a bit like a soccer team!  Our live shows are a community experience.  It's imperative for us to make a solid unifying connection with our audience.  We hold the live performance in high esteem, as it’s an ancient ritual where humans come together celebrating life through the wonder of music.  It’s a bit of a spectacle to behold.”
