 The Arsenals have successfully created a signature blend of authentic Jamaican ska, rocksteady rhythms and pop. Since 1994, they have built a broad and dedicated following, keeping their audiences entertained with irresistibly charismatic performances, superior musicianship and an extensive musical catalogue.

Led by an astonishingly energetic trombonist named Dizzzy D who shares the limelight with a charming and easy-going singer named Comfort, the Arsenals captivate audiences from the moment they hit the stage. Backed by a group of accomplished musicians, the Arsenals deliver a house-party vibe even at a big amphitheatre.

The Arsenals have performed with ska legends Toots and The Maytals, Monty Morris, Lord Tanamo (Skatallites), The Toasters, The Slackers and The Satellites. They perform regularly in and around Toronto, tour Canada and the US, are booked annually for festivals, and frequently play private and corporate events.
