Biography

The Pioneers were a vocal trio that was instrumental in the beginnings of Ska and the worldwide popularising of Jamaican music

The Pioneers were one of the first Jamaican bands to achieve international chart success. They attracted a large audience in the U.K., mainly within the large skinhead scene brewing in the late 1960s. Their influence was directly felt in many of the Ska Revival bands on the Two-Tone Label, including The Specials, who covered “Long Shot (Kick de Bucket)”, and The English Beat, who covered “Jackpot”.

Pioneers was also the name of a Manchester based indie band in the mid 00’s.
