Multi-award winning a cappella group SKETY is a six-piece collective of professional Czech jazz singers. While each one is a front-man for their own projects, their love of singing a cappella brought them together. As SKETY, they have enjoyed success on the international stage since 2014. Their sound is reminiscent of the legendary Singers Unlimited and Manhattan Transfer, but they often move where many would not expect, to create their own distinctive sound and style. SKETY’s rich interpretations, tight harmonies and playful groove will have their audience under no illusion that this is a once in a lifetime experience.
2018 will coincide with the 100th Anniversary of Czechoslovakian independence, and SKETY look forward to bringing their fresh and exuberant music to Australia and to the BRISBANE VOCAL JAZZ FESTIVAL 2018.
“Most exciting, emotion filled , and intelligent live experience I’ve had a long time to support their creative endeavors It’s one of the best ways to keep real vocal alive!!!” Kim Nazarian / New York Voices
“I heard SKETY the first time in 2014 and they totally blew me away, their sense of musical style and their musicality just thrilled me, and their vocal skills inspired me greatly. “They are one of the future a cappella groups in the world”. Anders Jalkéus / The Real Group
“SKETY’S performance will stay in my heart for a very long time…honest, pure vocal jazz like one can rarely hear…passion, lush harmonies, and true swing”. Andrea Figallo / Wise Guys
