About AceTones...
Members of AceTones have a long standing love affair with Jamaican music and its offshoots. Having cut their teeth in the NZ ska and reggae scene performing in bands such as Skatilator, The Managers, Roofdog, Skaface Claw, Earthtone Rockers, and Moisty Atsushiís Rocksteady Allstars, the band members combine a wealth of experience with a fresh and unique approach. AceTones infuse the irresistible grooves of Jamaican music with their own distinctive style.

AceTones are purveyors of fine Jamaican music styles, from 60ís ska and rocksteady to reggae and dub. Paying tribute to the greats, this four-piece instrumental band draws inspiration from founders of the styles such as Skatallites, The Upsetters, Jackie Mittoo, Sly and Robbie and more. AceTones offer a superlative selection of time-honoured classics, rare grooves and originals to satisfy connoisseurs and new listeners alike.
