Mighty Mighty Bosstones TicketsThe Mighty Mighty Bosstones are a ska band that formed in 1983 out of the '80s hard core and punk scene. Technically, the band is a "ska punk" or "ska core" band and really was the first ska band in general to garner mainstream success. In 1997, it released an album, Let's Face It, that went platinum and secured the Bosstones place as the most commercially successful ska band of all time. The Bosstones are also credited with the creation of a sub-genre to "ska" music called ska core. This sub-genre combines elements of hard core music with the traditional multi-instrumental ska music and is quite different from the more popular ska punk music that helped the band gain its initial success.
A Successful Ska BandAfter reading about the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and its success, you may wonder what the term "ska" refers to and how the Bosstones helped to put this type of music on the map. Ska music, and the Bosstones specifically, encompasses instruments usually reserved for marching bands or jazz ensembles rather than a touring music group. For instance, you will hear a trombone, saxophone, trumpet and other horns when you go to a Bosstones concert, and that is the norm for ska music. The Mighty Mighty Bosstones have made an obscure genre of music enter the mainstream by sticking to its roots and writing songs and music that no other group can. The instruments it uses and the different bass lines and beats that come from them both make the group different and very entertaining.
