SkaDaddyZ is a ska band from Silver Strand Beach in Oxnard, California. They were founded in 1993. They achieved a hit[citation needed] with their cover version of The Eagles' "Hotel California".

SkaDaddyZ have played alongside bands such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, The Specials, No Doubt and Save Ferris across the west-coast. At the Ska-Summit 2003 in Las Vegas, the band joined acts with The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Madness. Said to be compared to Sublime[citation needed], the SkaDaddyZ describe their music as a blend of Ska, Funk, Rasta, and Punk - all this presented with extreme energy. The band has a self-produced album "Rude Boyz" with ÜBERSEE RECORDS. Darren "Zorba" Cruz and Blake Cruz are both brothers of Brandon Cruz, the child actor of The Courtship of Eddie's Father fame, also lead singer of Nardcore original punks Dr. Know and Dead Kennedys.[1][2][3]
