It’s live reggae, ska and skankin’ style as The Wardrobe welcomes the incredible, indescribable and unpronouncable reggae-rousers The Caroloregians to Leeds!

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 International 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 Wardrobe dancefloor to bounce to the rocksteady beat! Presented by Band on the Wall.
