     Since their formation in 1984, Cambridge’s Mighty Mighty BossToneS have been nothing short of, well, mighty! During their 27-year career, they’ve played thousands of shows all over the world and released scores of records. There have been a few line-up changes along the way, but the founding members - singer Dickey Barrett, Joe Gittleman, Ben Carr and Tim Burton (the saxaphone player, not the director) – remain a constant. The BossToneS are considered the pioneers of ska-punk, a music genre that melds horn-heavy Jamaica-based ska and raw punk rock. You may have been introduced to them via their 1997 platinum album Let’s Face It, and it’s single “The Impression That I Get”. The BossToneS are currently – and perpetually – on tour.
