The Operators (Edmonton)

The Operators formed roughly a year ago after giving into peer pressure from friends and fans to breath new life into the Edmonton scene and Canadian ska music.

Originally, the group thought they were just a successful 4-track recording project until their MP3s began to be passed around the Edmonton scene at lightening speed. Since that time, the group has grown to become one of Edmonton's most sought after ska groups. The Operators draw influence from all Jamaican music - from ska and rocksteady, to dub and dancehall - and fuse it together with a punk-rock approach...this is punky reggae and Edmonton's finest.
