Listed In Jazzwise Magazine as ‘One to Watch 2018’ Skeltr was born to serve the needs of the listening people, offering sound and energy for all to enjoy – created in Manchester, the music was composed by saxophonist, band leader and Glowrogues front man: Sam Healey.
Having recently toured the UK with LA sensation KNOWER, Skeltr are climbing fast – Their ‘Spiritual Punk Funk’ comes at the audience with sumptuous, technically prolific saxophone solos alongside mysterious samples, synths and loopers for a heart- wrenching and thoughtful cascade of modern and technical soulful funk.
Skeltr, known for their unique stage set up and engaging performances – connect to an audience hungry for new and exciting instrumental music. Travelling through Apocalyptic Punk Funk, Spiritual Jazz, emotional ballads and off-world sound manipulation and effects. Be prepared for a fresh musical experience!
Steve Mead of the Manchester Jazz Festival had this to say: ‘ An electrifying new duo in which Sam Healey’s roaring sax lines soar above Craig Hanson’s drum patterns, electronic soundscapes and samples, manipulated live in the moment: a striking, expansive sound with a buzzing energy at its core.’
Louis Cole, Knower: “Skeltr are Hot as Hell”
Skeltr’s performance at Reykjavik Jazzfestival is a part of our double bill- late night concert in the old potato storage in Ártúnsholt. Una Stef and her band will follow up.
