The Parka Kings (and the Reuben Sandwich Horns) were a ska band from Michigan that were on Jump Up! Records. The Parka Kings formed in 1993 in one of the Midwest's legendary music cities and one of the hotbeds of 3rd wave ska, Detroit. Early appearances on the first two American Skathic compilations endeared the band to thousands of fans worldwide and put them center stage on the growing but still fledgling ska scene. The band produced two successful albums, "23 Skidoo" in 1995 & "Bienvenidos" in 1997.
