FULL ELECTRIC POWER 2.0 > BOOKINGS
SKYBLASTERS is considered Belgium's all time legendary reggae-band! Back in the 80's and early 90's, this genuine band (formed at Gent) wrote Belgian musical history with the release of their live debut-album (something that hadn't been done before), two succesfull studio-albums, countless live performances and a few tours around Europe. In 1993 the band decided to pull the plug after five intense years. In 2005, after a brief but succesfull reunion tour on request of the fans, it became quiet again.
Up until 2013, when co-founder/drummer Patrick (pdw) De Witte sadly passed away and the remaining core members played acoustic versions at his memoral. It became the start of a new chapter in the bands history. They decided to take it back to the stage in loving memory of their friend (pdw). But not as expected. Drums were replaced by percussion and cajon, amps were banned and guitars came in their acoustic form. Gigs became all about the music in it's most pure and vulnerable format. Surprisingly the power never got lost and again on request of the fans, the band recorded a second live album to celebrate the 30th birthday of the first one, called ACOUSTIC POWER.
And well, as loyal as the band is to the fans, the next request became a new challenge... How about getting the band back together again in it's original shape, the full electric 'dirty dozen' that always has been alive and well....
Missing a few friends/bandmembers who crossed over, but constantly present in their hearts...
SKYBLASTERS presents FULL ELECTRIC POWER 2.0.
NEWS & UPDATES
NEW SINGLE OUT NOW
It's been a while ago since we've launched a single... Almost 15 years ago! Well, it happened recently... We dove into the studio with our old time friend Peter Gillis and recorded Just Another Day.
Thanks to Luc Verstraete, we had the opportunity to launch it on the label A Music Harbour. Things went pretty fast... so we thought: let's get this one on the road, we'll manage to shoot a video later on.
Unfortunately, things went a bit different as planned...
Corona came in and well, the lock-down made it impossible to make a video. Or not? Indeed, we've made something ourselves from a distance... Hope you enjoy!
