Few musicians can lay claim to influencing a generation but Roddy Byers is one of them. As lead guitarist with The Specials he helped write the soundtrack to the 2 Tone generation penning such classic songs as Rat Race, Hey Little Rich Girl and Concrete Jungle. His influence continues through Amy Winehouse’s cover of ‘Rich Girl’ and brought the music of 2 Tone to a whole new generation in the new millennium helping to kick start the recent Ska Revival.

After 32 years of treating audiences to his own Ska-Rockabilly brand of ‘Radiation’ therapy, Roddy Byers stepped away as the Specials lead guitarist and into the centre spotlight as the frontman/guitarist of the Skabilly Rebels. Roddy and his Skabilly Rebels are the next phase of an audio formula Byers has been working to perfect since the day he stepped into the recording studio with The Specials back in 1979 – a fusion of the driving rhythm of Ska and the gritty hard edge of Rockabilly and Punk.

Roddy and The Skabilly boys tour regularly across the UK & Europe as well as making annual trips to the US to perform in their own right and also alongside long term friend Dave Wakeling; guitarist vocalist and founder of The Beat. Watch out for Roddy and The Skabilly Rebels on tour and coming to a town near you to deliver that authentic flavour of Ska infused with Rockabilly roots.
