The Simmertones are a seasoned nine-piece ska and reggae band from the southwest of the UK who regularly get audiences dancing in packed venues and festivals with their infectious live sound.

In 2014 The Simmertones had their biggest hit to date, with a release of a cover version of the well-known classic 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' (which contains samples of 'Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps' by Doris Day under licence from Sony Music Entertainment).

This was hugely successful for the band, with repeated airplay on BBC radio stations. In particular, Steve Lamacq added the song to his playlist and gave it several airings, including prime time airplay on BBC Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music. Further airplay was attained in the United States and internationally.

The single was produced by esteemed veteran Richard Digby Smith (Island Records, Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Sparks and Free), with the finishing touches applied by Dave Eringa, of Manic Street Preachers fame. These elements combined with an incredible recorded performance by the band, merged to create the authentic sound heard on the finished recording.
