Billboard magazine hails New York’s The Toasters as “Ska Pioneers”. They have boldly gone where no Ska band has gone before since their formation in New Yok City in 1981. They have been compared to The Ramones, largely due to their longevity and adherence to core principles.
The Toasters are held to be one of the most influential Ska bands around and their anthem, ‘Don’t Let The Bastards Grind You Down’ is a dancefloor favourite on many a DJ’s playlist. Their lean, mean ska machine has galvanised audiences and musicians alike, with their embrace of the Jamaica-born pop music style that overwhelmed England in the 1960s, migrated to America in the early 1980s, and went global in the 1990s.
The hallmark Toasters sound sits at the nexus of Reggae, Jazz, Punk and Soul and is the musical equivalent of a brass knuckle-duster. Catch them or lose the will to live.
Plus very special guests
Captain Accident & The Disasters
Captain Accident is a Reggae/Ska/Soul artist who creates a unique blend of soulful Lover’s Rock, Roots Reggae, Ska, Dub and Rocksteady at his home studio in Cardiff. This sound is then brought to life on stage with the help of a collective of musicians known as “The Disasters” although, in reality, they are far from disasters!
The energetic live show is guaranteed to get people up and dancing. With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly infectious groove, there’s no standing still when Captain Accident and his clumsy companions hit the stage.
