After a short brake during summer 2005, the first small concerts arrived, at café Kosmic and at the Faculty. After a while, Bastiaan was replaced by Erik, and three new faces and instruments showed up: Pieter on trombone, Yasmin on voice and Ruben on the congas. The 11 Bottos were now complete and became very close friends. In 2007, a dazzling period broke down, with concerts in the Vooruit, the Bijloke, at the Student Kickoff, and first gigs outside the city of Ghent.
In the summer of 2008, the Skatchou Bottos were on tour in Germany and played several concerts in Bremen, Braunschweig and Berlin. A first EP was recorded at the Galaxy Studios in Mol. The music of the Skatchou Bottos can be described as world music, influenced by rhythm, latin and reggae, combining Southern, Eastern and Western aspects. After more than three years, the Skatchou Bottos built up a strong live reputation, which was rewarded by several public prices.
