Sister Nancy & Legal Shot Sound on Tuesday 23rd October 2018
Sister Nancy & Legal Shot Sound
The Living Legend Sister Nancy aka The Queen of Dancehall comes to Bristol for a very special performance with Legal Shot Sound.
In the words of her iconic 1982 single “Bam Bam,” Sister Nancy is “one inna three million,” an artist whose talents truly “come from creation.”
Regarded as the first female star in the male-dominated world of Jamaican dancehall, Sister Nancy continues to blaze new trails 35 years after the release of her first and only album. Recently recognized by Pitchfork as The Best Dancehall Song of All-Time, “Bam Bam” has been sampled, quoted and referenced in tracks by Lauryn Hill, Wiz Khalifa, Kanye West and most recently Jay Z
There is no wrong time to play 'Bam Bam.' Every summer belongs to 'Bam Bam.' ... A perfect song.” — The New Yorker
Sister Nancy is joined by Legal Shot Sound
Passionate is the term that best defines Legal Shot. Feeling the shock waves of the speakers bouncing off the walls at the Notting Hill Carnival in the late 90's, they were hooked. They decided to build their own system in the tradition of authentic Jamaican sound and built an over 20KW sound system.
In their travels to Jamaica and New York they have filled up their boxes with rare vinyl and original Dubplates, They're playing Roots & Culture and specialized themselves over the years in Rub A Dub and Digital. They live up their sets of productions straight out of the Legal Shot Sound Studio.
For over ten years, with true drive and hard work, Legal Shot Sound System has shared with a growing audience their love for this music. And at each of their gigs they spread their passion for the sound system with the massive! The crew is composed of Matty Dread, Electrophil, Polak, Paco, Ben, Shinehead & Echo Minott.
Music Genres: Dancehall, Reggae
