Don Letts Carnival Sound returns to Band on the Wall. BBC 6 Music’s Don Letts is many things; Grammy Award-winning filmmaker, reggae and punk legend, counter-culture broadcaster, musician and club DJ. Band on the Wall brings this cultural heavyweight back to the venue for his Carnival clubnight, with Reggae stalwarts Twinkle Brothers live!

Feel the bass, the eclectic soundtrack, the smiling faces and the love between brothers and sisters under a groove. From dancehall and reggae through to soul, funk, hip-hop and everything in between, experience the Carnival Sound with DJ Don Letts and special guests Twinkle Brothers.

Twinkle Brothers are Jamaican Reggae royalty, hailing from the north coast of Jamaica in the ghettos of Falmouth. In the early ’70s, the group hooked up with the influential producer and arranger Bunny Lee, a union that produced a number of reggae hits including “We Can Do It Too” and “Miss Laba Laba.” In 1975, the Twinkles released their best and most widely known record, Rasta Pon Top, a rasta-infused, roots-heavy demi-masterpiece that included soul and gospel vocal stylings within the deep grooves.

This is a standing show.
