When a Ska Big Band lands on the Place des Festivals, you expect a rare detonation of musical energy. Accompanied by the strongest, most boomtastic assemblage of brass ever witnessed onstage, exuberant Australian frontman Nicky Bomba has the magical power required to unleash crowds, and has been doing so with gusto for ten years in sellout shows and at festivals around the world. This 30-piece (!) orchestra is utterly devoted to its mission, reveling in a contempo ska bursting with energy, verve and rhythm. An ab-so-lute must-see.
