A night of Ska, Rock-Steady, Soul & Funk from the Milan Based Record Kicks label.
Italian Ska/RockSteady/Soul giants The Bluebeaters headline their first London concert since a sold out 2011 concert. Active since 1994 with 4 studio albums and several gold records under the belt, The Bluebeaters are top musicians in love with vintage Jamaican sounds: Ska, Rock Steady, Rhythm Blues and Soul. Blessed by Ken Boothe, during the last 20 years of their career they've headline festivals like Rototom Sun Splash and International Ska Fest in 2012 and extensively toured around Europe. Amongst their fans, there are folks like David Rodigan and the legendary Lloyd Knibb from The Skatalites.
Tanika Charles flies in from Toronto to perform her debut UK show.
Hannah Williams is a whirlwind of soul, love, lust and anger that leaves behind tatters of whichever stage she graces. Following Amy Winehouse and Adele, she’s a British woman here to change the shape of popular music for the better. She’s backed by an outstanding crew of the finest musicians the UK has to offer. After the success of debut album “A Hill of Feathers”, the band was catapulted all around Europe, capturing the hearts of all they met. Along the way they supported and drew praise from Sharon Jones & The Dap Kings, Cat Power, Charles Bradley, Giles Peterson and Craig Charles. Not to mention garnering over a million views on YouTube for their song "Work It Out'.
