At the end of April we were very proud to welcome Tommy Rocka Shacka to Tighten Up alongside ace soundman and our old friend Gladdy Wax. The theme of the night was less of a straight revive session and more of a focus on the 60’s sounds of ska, rocksteady and early reggae. We’d hoped for a great night and we weren’t disappointed with killer shots from both Tommy and Gladdy all night long (and hopefully a few from the Tighten Up Crew in the warm up too).
You can listen to a recording of the session below:

If you like these sounds we’re doing a second “Never Grow Old” themed Tighten Up on Saturday 4 June with guest selectas Jim Cox (Reggae Train) and Tiny T (Mighty Cloudburst). Don’t miss!
