Based in the North East of England, the Skip Rats have been well established on the rockin' scene, both in Europe and the UK since 1987. They can be seen at many rock 'n' roll clubs, festivals, pubs and private functions playing their brand of authentic rockabilly music.


Many recordings have been produced in the history of the SkipRats, consisting of rare 50's covers and many self penned songs, which are a true reflection of the personal tastes of the members of the band.
