Halifax party band The ConquerAlls return to The Carleton for an an old-school ska/reggae night on Friday, November 22nd. Show time is 10 PM and admission is only $5 at the door. It’s a Saturday night so, you know, live a little, dance a little (or a lot, it’s up to you)!
The ConquerAlls have been setting dance floors around Nova Scotia aflame since 2017. This seven-piece band plays the best of first and second-wave ska, with a bit of reggae, rockabilly, and Northern soul thrown in for good measure. Their tight rhythm section, killer horns and engaging and entertaining vocal performance have show-goers up and skanking faster than you can shout “2 Tone!”, as audiences at The Seahorse, Gus’s, Menz/Molly’s, Paddy’s and the Wolfville Apple Blossom Festival can attest. The ConquerAlls’ frenetic ska sound builds on the band members’ rock, reggae, classical and jazz chops, and the band features former members of The Flashing Lights, Dr. Skankworthy, The October Game, Forbidden Dimension and charity fundraisers The Soda Shoppe Gang.
