In just over a weeks time on Friday 4 May it’s the London International Ska Festival Deejay All Nighter. We’re really excited about this event as the Tighten Up Crew get to go head to head with Steve Rice of Downbeat Melody alongside Chris Lane. As we’ll all be playing on Steve’s superb Downbeat Melody Sound System we’ll have to be gentle but expect plenty of tough tough tunes all the same. As it’s part of the Ska Festival there will be plenty of 60’s sounds but all tastes will be catered for on the night.
There are three rooms of music in total with other highlights being Jerry Dammers, Dreadzone Soundsytem, Gladdy Wax and Tim Bilko Wells.
You can get advance tickets from the London International Ska Festival website. Check out the rest of the festival too; spread over 4 nights there is a whole series of artists lined up including Dandy Livingston, The Pioneers (George Dekker & Jackie Robinson), Dave Barker, Rico Rodriguez, Freddie Notes and Owen Grey.
