The Know How

The Know How was a third wave ska band from Gainesville, Florida, formed in 1998. Their musical style blended ska and pop punk and prominently featured a Moog synthesizer alongside more typical ska instrumentation (including an organ and usually one or more trombones.)

Despite releases on Jump Up! Records and Stomp Records [ [ Stomp Records profile] ] , numerous nationwide tours (including appearances on the 2005 Warped Tour as well as the second [] and third [] Ska Is Dead tours,) the band broke up after their final shows in Gainesville on February 16th and 17th, 2007. The band cited financial strains, tour fatigue and fluctuations in the supporting lineup as contributing factors.
