Preview: Gentleman’s Dub Club @ Troxy (London, 3rd March 2017)

SC_GentDC_2017_A3-003

Only one of the most upbeat cities in the UK could only give birth to one of the most upbeat bands. So be prepared to skank all night on the 3rd of March, because Leeds born-and-bred Gentleman’s Dub Club, are coming to London to perform their biggest headline show ever at the Troxy.

The historical Art-Deco, East-End venue will wear its party clothes and sound warmly up-tempo throughout the night. In fact, the Yorkshire big band with its groovy sound based on Jamaican roots-reggae, ska and dub won’t be the only Caribbean-influenced act gracing the stage…

Before and after the 9-piece strong ensemble, you’ll enjoy dub-guru Mad Professor, drum’n’bass, dancehall and jungle DJ and producer Benny Page and Dub Mafia front-woman Eva Lazarus.

Head for the Troxy on Friday, join the “dubtopyan” Gentleman’s Dub Club world and you’ll “see them smile”, no matter what.
