Formed by Patrick De Witte, rock-journalist for the magazine Humo, former member of the Misters.

 

Essentially a "good-time" & "Party"-band of the late 1980's, who have cheered up many a town-festival and mini-concert. The album "Living in Limbo" is the only time they succeeded in capturing the spirit of the band on record.

Or as it is said in "Wit-lof from Belgium" : "The real force of the Skyblasters were the live performances, a reputation that brought the group to the smallest festival podia in 88 and 89. Good times, no blah-blah about Jah and - very exceptional for a reggae group - usually on time, on the right stage, in the right town."

In 1990, the group splits up a the biggest part of the members join again in a more pop-oriented group : The Wooden Horses.

Singer of the band Eduard Buadee later on tried a solo career. Although "Mama Africa" became a summertime hit, he didn't grasp the attention of the masses so far.
