The West Seattle based band “The Diablotones” started their venture back in 1995 under the original name Freak Magnet.
The Diablotones took the 3rd wave SKA movement into a completely different direction by blending elements of Latin, SKA, Bossanova, Surf, Punk, and even Polka. Their energy and originality has been felt live onstage throughout the US, Canada & Europe.
MTV picked up their entire first Album, which was featured on the MTV Reality series “The Real World” & “Road Rules.”
The band’s second release, “Dia De Los Muertos,” was a strong album which gave the band room to travel and tour. In 2006, the band re-formed to have more fun with the music they had created and share it with a whole new set of ears as well as their die-hard fans.
