Celebrating Black History Month 2016 Punch Records present three living legends who transformed the sound of UK Reggae. The Lovers Rock Monlogues brings the sound of timeless music from the 80’s into the Band on the Wall for one night only.

Lovers Rock icons Janet Kay, Carroll Thompson and Victor Romero Evans come together to celebrate its golden years. The Lovers Rock Monologue fuses timeless music and theatrical storytelling, giving the audience a humorous and realistic account of the Lover’s Rock lifestyle.

Born in London, Lovers Rock defined a generation in the late 70s and 80s and is a huge influential sub-genre of reggae. It gave women a voice in the traditionally male-dominated realm of Reggae. Lovers Rock was also an integral part of Black British identity during a politically and socially unstable time.
