THE BARTENDERS are leading aficionados of Jamaican ska-jazz in Poland, praised by backing the project "Tribute to Alibabki" and main Polish representation of the genre abroad. They met in Warsaw in 2006. Fascination with the achievements of Jamaican music of 60s/70s last century was what connected them. They performed at most of reggae and ska festivals in Poland, with their own sets or backing artists like Dr. Ring Ding.
In 2013 they released their debut album „Szumna Sessions” - eleven tunes embedded in Jamaican style: from instrumental ska-jazz compositions (including Krzysztof Komeda's "Kattorna") to melodic ska/rocksteady and early reggae influenced songs, vocally enriched by such artists as: Dr. Ring Ding, Daniel Broman (Babylove and the Van Dangos), Mamadou Diouf etc. The album was very well received, and single "The Polecat" featuring Dr. Ring Ding remained at the forefront of the Polish Radio charts RDC for a few weeks.
In autumn 2015 they participated in "Tribute to Alibabki" project to celebrate 50th anniversary of Jamaican music in Poland. Their role was to arrange and perform selected songs of the legendary female group Alibabki in ska/reggae manner and renew their historical ska tunes from 1965 with cooperation with top Polish reggae/ska singers and Alibabki themselves. The band were highly acclaimed for their musical work.
On their second album, "Poles are movin'!", ten years of experience in making the audience dance are put into thirteen songs, sung in Polish and English, with jazzy ska & reggae feel and analog sound.
