As the founding member of Australian ska pop band The Allniters, Guitarist Marty Fabok is no stranger to the Ska music scene. The Allniters achieved chart-topping success with their ska-style cover of Bobby Bloom’s hit “Montego Bay” followed by the single ‘Love and Affection’ from the D-D-D DANCE album. From 1980 – 1987 the group headlined several tours of Australia and supported international acts including Madness, UB40, The Wailers, The Clash, The Troggs, Toots and the Maytals and Taj Mahal and high profile local acts such as Mental as Anything, Spy v Spy, Strange Tennants and INXS.
Since their recent catapult onto the Ska music scene, the OzSkas have performed sell-out headline shows in Sydney venues including The Factory Theatre and have supported the electrifying ska-favourites Melbourne Ska Orchestra.
