Hi and welcome to the official web site of rockabilly trio, The Skip Rats.  

  • Col Mee - Lead Vocal/Rhythm Guitar
  • Mickie Downey - Upright Bass
  • Joe Guillan - Lead Guitar/Vocals

Based in the North East of England, the Skip Rats have been well established on the rockin' scene, both in Europe and the UK since 1986. They can be seen at many rock 'n' roll clubs, festivals, pubs and private functions playing their brand of authentic rockabilly music.

Many recordings have been produced in the history of the SkipRats, consisting of rare 50's covers and many self penned songs, which are a true reflection of the personal tastes of the members of the band. A list of those recordings and mp3 samples can be found on the Music page.

Keep checking the gigs page for updates on when and where the band will be playing and don't forget to check out the picture pages too!
