THE PIRRIPS is the culmination of eight years, 300 live performances and 3000 copies of two albums sold.
Band members Lee, Nick, Allan, Huw, Andy and Dave were originally The SkaSouls, a band known for its highly energetic live performances of Ska, Reggae and Rocksteady, and through the power of social media, the band has amassed an impressive following, including a sizeable number of fans in Venezuela!
Over the years an increasing number of very well received and highly popular original tunes were added to their repertoire of well-known 2Tone and Trojan covers, and with the completion of an album of all original music in early 2018, THE PIRRIPS was born.
The history that brought these six musicians to this point ensures that THE PIRRIPS arrives with substance. With the August release of their debut album, 'All At Sea', THE PIRRIPS arrives with spirit and style.
