Band on the Wall presents what must be the reggae highlight of the year –  an ultra-rare Leeds performance by the Jamaican roots reggae legend and Massive Attack collaborator Horace Andy with long-time band Dub Asante at The Wardrobe, Leeds.

Possessing what must be one of reggae’s most beautiful voices, Horace Andy emerged as a major force in the 1970s when his collaborations with producer  Coxsone Dodd and, later, Bunny Lee resulted in a series of songs now considered classics including You Are My Angel, Skylarking, Just Say Who, Don’t Try To Use Me, You Are My Angel, Zion Gate, I’ve Got to Get Away andSomething On My Mind. Later hits include the much-loved singles Government Land and Do You Love My Music and seminal album In The Light.

In 1990 his long-standing collaboration with Trip-Hop pioneers Massive Attackbegan which resulted in him contributing to all five of their albums – most notably with Angel on Mezzanine and Five Man Army on Blue Lines. Horace Andy continues to be one of reggae’s brightest voices and most loved stars so join us at The Wardrobe for what promises to be a wonderful night of blissful music.
