We still can’t get over how magical last Thursday night was when we had the once in a lifetime opportunity and the planets aligned so that original Jamaican ska band The Skatalites could perform an outdoor concert in the heart of our downtown. This morning we are bringing you a collection of photos taken from that night (doesn’t look like any videos have really surfaced, sorry)! We’ve compiled a flickr photo album of 45 photos that you can check out right here. Photographers include Brian Galecki (Dumb Records), Carol Weems (Activator Magazine), and Adam Nicholson (Sala). Check those out there or a few above and below. There are a couple of opening act TaQsem as well.
The Skatalites on June 6th was one concert in a ten-part series – the next one happening tomorrow night (same place, same time) with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra Brass Band and Nashville Harpist “Timbre“. For the full list of concerts coming up on the block, go to the Levitt AMP Springfield website.
