Bigger Thomas

Celebrating 22 years of ska in 2010!! Bigger Thomas continues to keep crowds moving and grooving to their unique version of American ska that includes a heavy dose of 2-Tone ska, rocksteady and reggae thrown in for good measure. The band reflects the cultural diversity of the city they call home with members who have roots in the New York City metropolitan area as well as Haiti, Jamaica and the UK.

Best known for their upbeat ska-pop song "Ska in My Pocket" they play a diverse style encompassing ska, reggae, pop and punk. Over the course of their 20+ career, the band have had the pleasure of performing alongside the English Beat, Colin Hay of Men At Work, Pato Banton, Jimmy Cliff, Yellowman, Burning Spear, Bad Manners, The Selecter, Special Beat, De La Soul, Bim Skala Bim, The Alarm and The Toasters among many others.

The band recorded their new 10-song album 'Steal My Sound' at Version City Studios in New Brunswick, NJ with King Django behind the board. The album art work was designed by the one and only John 'Teflon' Sims who worked with Jerry Dammers to conceive the 2-Tone look and design for The Specials, The Selecter and other 2-Tone bands. The band's other albums 'We Wear The Mask', 'Resisting Success' and 'Bigger Thomas' a CD/DVD reissue of their first out-of-print LP are also available online at itunes.com and CD Baby.
