The band has played over 4000 concerts on stages around the world. In 1997 Billboard’s front page dubbed them “New York Ska pioneers.” This band has been around the block as they have played in countries not regularly visited by many ska bands such as Russia and Brazil. Their music is joyous, real and recognizable. Bands around the world have covered many a song by the Legendary Toasters!


One Drop can be coined as one of Victoria’s most beloved reggae/punk/hip hop/ska groups in recent memory. They are versatile beyond belief throwing in so many flavours of music of while keeping their sound hard driving and relentless. In addition to completing a successful national tour this past spring, the band also played memorable shows at the Victoria Jazz Fest and Victoria’s 5th Anniversary Ska Festival this summer. Their Victoria Ska Festival appearance at Steamers Pub alongside the world’s finest ska bands was the second appearance in as many years. One Drop just recently dropped a brand new CD and have an awesome movie short film in the works. Check out the trailer film on their web site: http://www. One Drop is one of Victoria’s favourite bands because they are so talented and offer good-hearted fun every time they play. They also have deep community roots playing all sorts of all ages show, benefits and house parties. They are also loved on the Gulf Islands as they have played some successful shows there including dates on Saltspring Island and Cortes Island. They are approachable and are constantly taking a community –based approach of attracting fans to their shows. It’s only a matter of time before One Drop will really start to become noticed outside BC and the rest of Canada. Join them in the process and be sure to mark this show (Tuesday, September 28th @ Legends) on your list of events to attend this September 2004!
