  • Monday 10th April 2017
This mischievous rabble from Lewisham have been causing mischief since school, spreading their contagious horn driven ska anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and beyond.
Over the last year the band has reached new heights by winning the 'World Reggae Contest', supporting UK legends Madness on their Grandslam UK Stadium tour, playing at a host of festivals including Glastonbury, Boomtown, Outlook, Ostroda Reggae, Nottinghill Carnival, Secret Garden Party & Shambala to name a few. The band also flew to the reggae heartland, Jamaica, to record at the world famous Harry J Studios in Kingston where they worked with Grammy Award Winning producer Stephen Stewart on their upcoming LP due out in the spring of 2017.
Following a full headline tour of the UK and Ireland in October 2016, the band are releasing the first single 'Don't You Try' from their eagerly anticipated LP which features the very special guest Toots Hibbert of Toots & The Maytals!
