It’s live reggae, ska and skankin’ style into the early hours as Shake ‘n Bake presents a full-length live set by the incredible, indescribable and unpronouncable reggae-rousers The Caroloregians to Band on the Wall! Followed by DJs Coops (Revolver) and Martin The Mod (Ska Box) at the helms and playing the best reggae, ska, soul, funk and rhythm & blues until 3am.
The Caroloregians are fronted by the New Orleans soul stylings of Matt Hardison and backed by a boss reggae section, in one almighty soundclash of pounding rhythm & soul vs finger-licking funkified reggae. Drawing inspiration from musical cousins The Meters & The Upsetters, The Caroloregians, who hail from Belgium, burst onto the European scene 4 years ago with dramatic effect. They soon became the choice backing band for touring Jamaican legends: Ken Boothe, Alton Ellis, The Pioneers, Rico Rodriguez MBE, Pat Kelly, Doreen Shaffer and most recently superbly backed Dave & Ansel Collins on their first show since the 1970’s at The London Intl Ska Festival.
It is, however, with their own electrifying show & songs where The Caroloregians truly excel. We are delighted to annouce The Caroloregians will be returning to the UK in March’12 to promote their album ‘Fat Is Back’. The party to end all parties – expect the Band on the Wall dancefloor to bounce to the rocksteady beat!
This event starts at 9pm but our Picturehouse cafe bar will be open earlier for delicious drinks and good times.
