52 songs in 52 weeks: Melbourne Ska Orchestra Celebrates 15 years

From their humble beginnings trying to figure out how many horn players they could get playing on one stage, the enormous Melbourne Ska Orchestra are now celebrating their 15 year anniversary. As a celebratory challenge, the 34 members set out to write one song a week during 2018. They join The Good, The Dub & The Global to chat and give us a delicious taste of their hard work. The band managed to get the mammoth task done by breaking it down in to pieces, starting with covers, then TV themes, and finally experimenting with their own tracks. Driven purely by the love of ska, the orchestra will be throwing a 15 year anniversary gig at the Espy this Friday.
