The NYC Ska Orchestra is a brand-new 18-piece big band with a bold new sound, playing strikingly original compositions and arrangements of popular songs across many genres. The members, a who’s-who of top New York players, have been selected to best express the orchestra’s lush musical stylings of jazz, blues, ska, rock steady, and reggae. Led by Kevin Batchelor and Andrae Murchison, with musical direction by Sharp Radway and Anant Pradhan, the NYC Ska Orchestra brings tremendous collective talent to uphold the finest traditions of music and culture. See you on the dance floor!

The Brooklyn Attractors
The Brooklyn Attractors
Anyone familiar with the American reggae and ska scene has already heard the work of the members of The Brooklyn Attractors. The group’s core lineup consists of New York City reggae and ska veterans Larry McDonald, Rich Graiko, Anant Pradhan, Eddie O’Campo, Dan Jesehlson, Buford O’Sullivan, Luke Penella, Mike Sarason, and Matt Kursmark, and featured guests Victor Axelrod, Andy Bassford, Brett Tubin, and Kevin Batchelor.
The group was founded by trumpeter Rich Graiko in 2011 to pay homage to Jamaican and American instrumental classics of the 1960s and 1970s. As longtime students of the music, the group brings together influences ranging from Tommy McCook & The Supersonics, The Skatalites, and Cedric Brooks to soul-jazz icons like Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard. By pushing forward old traditions, they have created their own sound.
The Brooklyn Attractors recently released their third full-length LP, The Move, on Jump Up Records. The group, led by saxophonist Anant Pradhan, features veteran Jamaican trumpeter Kevin Batchelor.
