Best known for his work as the singer and toaster in Ska and Two Tone legends The Specials, The Neville Staple Band‘s set features a mix of The Specials and Ska classics such as Gangsters, A Message To You Rudy, Monkey Man, Ghost Town and Night Club as well as tracks from his second chart topping band The Fun Boy Three, some Jamaican Ska classics and brand new original solo material. Plus special guest support featuring the punk, ska and calypso mixed reggae of Jeramiah Ferrari.
For anyone who doesn’t know, Neville Staple is one of the great figureheads of the second wave of British ska that broke across the nation’s music scene in the late 70s. Alongside Terry Hall and Jerry Dammers, Neville Staple was at the centre of perhaps UK ska’s most-loved bands The Specials who had seven consecutive top 10 hits between 1979 and 1981. When The Specials broke up, Neville formed Fun Boy Three with Terry Hall and Lynval Golding, and over the two year life span of the band they had six UK top 20 hits including The Lunatics (Have Taken Over The Asylum).
Expect all the hits and more from one of ska’s most loved artists – tickets are anticipated to go quickly so book early to avoid disappointment.
This event begins at 9.30pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open earlier for drinks and good times.
