Teflon Don is the birth of an emerging wave of ska music based out of entertainment metro, Orlando, FL. While ska bands of the past have reggae and Jamaican influences, Teflon Don is guided by an invigorating mix of American music like swing and dixieland. The band boasts an incredible 4-piece horn section, comprised of some of the best local jazz musicians and features complex, big-band horn lines and a magnetic sound. With shout vocals and a kicking rhythm section, Teflon Don has fans on their feet at every performance, selling out shows across Central Florida.

Teflon Don plays both ska favorites and original music which has filled a niche for innovative ska music. With influences like Reel Big Fish, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Streetlight Manifesto and Squirrel Nut Zippers, Teflon Don continues to make their mark across the state of Florida.

Founded by Jenny Morrison (Bass) and Chris King (Trumpet) in 2010, the band was formed based on a mutual passion for ska music. The band features members who are well known throughout Central Florida for their work as professional musicians in the community and collectively hold several degrees in music performance, music composition, recording arts, music education, and music business. The band highlights their incredible performers with riveting solos and throwbacks to jazz and ragtime music.

In September 2010, Teflon Don shot a low budget music video for their single, “One for the Drinkers” which was featured on Blank TV, he largest collection of punk, ska, oi, hardcore and indie music videos anywhere!

Teflon Don has opened for myriad of national acts including Big D & the Kids Table, Anberlin, J. Cole, The Pietasters, Mustard Plug, The Supervillains, We The Kings, The Ataris, and more! The “suit and tie” ensemble continues to perform across the state at large festivals and venues.

This riveting ska band has been featured in Connections Magazine twice in 2011 with rave reviews and was voted in the Orlando Weekly Reader’s Poll for Best Ska/Reggae Act. Members of the band recently performed in a video for ESPN’s Monday Night Football with Hank Williams Jr., to be aired in the beginning of each game.
