The Lovedraft’s Chronicles 002 – Echoes of Ska

1 min read

Last night, Lovedraft’s in Mechanicsburg, PA was ground zero for an unforgettable ska experience. The effervescent Monique Powell, leading the charge with her band, Save Ferris, delivered a performance that was both nostalgic and electric, a perfect blend of the past and the present.

From the first note to the last encore, it was evident that Monique wasn’t just there to sing — she was there to connect. With every song, she reached out, interacted, and brought fans into her world. This wasn’t just a concert; it felt like a reunion. The kind where every chorus sung feels like an anthem, and every glance exchanged feels like an old memory.

It’s worth noting the tremendous turnout. The ska community, a tight-knit group that dances to its own rhythm, showed up in droves. The sea of checkered shoes, dancing feet, and echoing choruses was evidence of a genre that, while not mainstream, has a heartbeat that’s loud and unyielding.

Props to 717 Entertainment for orchestrating the magic. Their vision and execution brought to the fore a night that will be etched in the annals of ska lore. Mechanicsburg was the place to be, and if you weren’t there, well, you missed out on ska history in the making.

Monique, Save Ferris, and the spirit of ska: a trio that promises electrifying nights. Until the next show!
