ABOUT US

The Estimators are the ultimate and unique party experience.

The Estimators are a splendid vibrant traditional Jamaican ska band hailing out of London.

These true Jamaican ska music roots warriors get nothing less than 'total music respect' with their full respect showing to the music first and foremost.

With fabulous grooves, sensational horn section displays and whole overall band brilliance they captivate audiences with their entire Ska music spectrum and get everyone skankin' in no time.

"We love to play pure unadulterated traditional Jamaican Ska.

We are not happy until we get everyone around skankin' and jumpin', then we really get going: we just love it and you will love it"

The Estimators were formed in 2009 by musician friends aiming to bring traditional Jamaican Ska to its original spirit and to pay respect to the originators of this amazing genre.

They have shared stage with The Skatalites, Stranger Cole, The Pioneers and many other legends of Ska and Reggae

Having never experienced a live ska band before I couldn't have asked for a better act to listen to! Absolutely fantastic! Made my 4 hour drive to my friend's wedding even more worth while!

Such a brilliant band! I saw them at Ali and Darren's wedding. Full of energy, great music and I loved that they got down from the stage to dance too. Also, that they performed a few extra numbers. So much better than some of the boring bands you get at weddings. Hope they come to the Stroud area again soon.

I am not sure where to start on how fantastic these guys are. Their videos online do not give justice to their talent and they look great on there.

My guests have not stopped talking about them and how we can get them to come back to play again.

As well as being fantastic musicians they are also wonderfully funny and engaging.

I just cannot speak highly enough of you. Thank you so so much.
