After forming in Leeds in 2006, Gentleman’s Dub Club took the UK dub scene by storm in the early 2010s with a string of notable performances at venues and festivals all over the country.
The band have released eight albums to date and always promise to bring a real party to their live shows with tight grooves and a heavyweight sound. So, if you fancy a bit of a dancefloor workout or you’re an 80s-style ska fanatic, this is the show for you.
Over the years, this vibrant live band have shared the stage with a plethora of top artists including The Streets, Roots Manuva, The Wailers, Finlay Quaye, Natty, Zion Train and Foreign Beggars Live Band.
The Skints are another cult outfit on the UK reggae scene. Forming in 2007, the four-piece have been described by Clash Music as “the torchbearers for modern British reggae music”.
A relentless live power, the band made a name for themselves playing London’s punk rock and squat party circuit, playing so-called “guerrilla gigs” to a dedicated fanbase. The Skints have released four full-length albums to date.
Renowned for their diverse musical style, the group’s influences include ska, punk, rubadub, dub, dancehall, grime, soul and hardcore. They are also a regular fixture at festivals all over the world and supported the likes of The Specials, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott and You Me At Six.
Gentleman’s Dub Club and The Skints’ joint UK tour will see them appear at Bristol’s Marble Factory on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 March. Join the gig's waiting list HERE.
