The Georgetown Orbits


The Georgetown Orbits boast a heavy regiment of traditional Ska and upbeat, roots-influenced Reggae. They are turning heads in the Northwest as one of the few bands to pay tribute to the old sounds of Jamaican Ska, a style which has gained notable popularity in Seattle since the band’s conception in late 2004. The nationally distributed 7” single, My Baby’s Okay, released on Olympia’s Dead End Social Club label, made its musical mark in February of 2006. Read more on Last.fm
The Georgetown Orbits boast a heavy regiment of traditional Ska and upbeat, roots-influenced Reggae. They are turning heads in the Northwest as one of the few bands to pay tribute to the old sounds of Jamaican Ska, a style which has gained notable popularity in Seattle since the band’s conception in late 2004. The nationally distributed 7” single, My Baby’s Okay, released on Olympia’s Dead End Social Club label, made its musical mark in February of 2006. The following summer was spent performing a solid set classic Reggae and Ska at the Seattle Weekly Music Awards Showcase, Northwest Folklife Festival, Victoria Ska Festival, and Seattle’s Hempfest. With the release of the group’s full-length self-titled debut album in August 2007, the sounds of the Orbits have further penetrated the airwaves of the Northwest earning airplay on 90.3FM KEXP and 91.3FM KBCS (Seattle), 90.7FM KSER (Everett), 89.9FM KGRG (Auburn), and KPSU 1450AM (Portland). Fans of reggae, dancehall, funk, soul, jazz, ska, and rock are now singing along to choruses while they dance to the hard-hitting rhythms and tastefully harmonized horn lines of the Georgetown Orbits.

In their relatively short career, the Georgetown Orbits have already played with such prominent names as the Skatalites (Jamaica), the English Beat (UK), Bad Manners (UK) the Toasters (NY), Westbound Train (Boston), Mike Park (owner, Asian Man Records), Warsaw Poland Brothers, Stiff Upper Lips, Natalie Wouldn't, and other local and touring bands. To date, they have played in numerous venues around Seattle, including Studio Seven, the Central Saloon, El Corazon, the Vera Project, the Showbox, the Nectar Lounge, and Neumo's.
