The greatest ever Reggae club night
The most successful of the second-generation reggae bands, Black Uhuru maintained their high quality despite numerous personnel changes in their 40-plus-year history. The first reggae band to win a Grammy award, for their 1983 album Anthem, Black Uhuru was called “The most dynamic and progressive reggae act of the 1970s and early ’80s.”
We are lucky enough to have the original singer, Mykal Rose performing all the classics alongside this mammoth lineup, that is the stuff of dreams for any Reggae lover.
Coxsone, are widely regarded as the UKs most influential soundsystem. They were also considered the biggest movers in that world up until the 90s, having only recently got back together. They also played a big part in spearheading the lover’s rock movement and helped instigate the shift towards digital dancehall.
Capping off this monumental line up will be the globetrotting selector and stalwart of Notting Hill Carnival, Aba Shanti-I. Dub pioneer and icon, Mad Professor will be in attendance performing a crafted set especially for this night. Finally one of the most powerful Dub bands in the UK, The Resonators. The 9 piece band who are firmly rooted in 60s/70s Reggae.
Music Genres: Dancehall, Reggae, World Music
