Continuing it’s acclaimed series of concerts by the world’s best reggae artists followed by aftershow dub parties, Band on the Wall is delighted to welcome the legendary Dennis Bovell to its stage.

UK reggae maestro Dennis Bovell is producer, composer, re-mixer, bandleader – and the heaviest bassist in town, pumping out the deepest of body-shaking dub grooves. From the days of his seminal band Matumbi and the radical days of punk, Dennis continues to be a massive presence – he’s worked with the likes of Marvin Gaye, Fela Kuti, The Slits and Linton Kwesi Johnson – and live, the Dub Band’s rock-solid horns and rhythm section never fail to move and groove.

Followed by our late night reggae party with the reggae master Tappa Benz turning up the bass ’till 3am. 

This concert will begin at 9.30pm.

‘[Dennis Bovell’s] contributions to reggae are huge – he was one of the original architects of lover’s rock, a movement that put British reggae on the world map.’ The Independent
