7:55pm - Los Chavos

LOS CHAVOS - (Official Site)
Los Chavos live experience showcases the bands signature energy coupled with complex arrangements and a variety of Afro-Latin rhythms such as cumbiadub/reggaemerengue, but never straying too far from their ska/reggae roots - as romantic ballads were given a ska/cumbia twist and hard-hitting merengue horns are mixed with calypso-hiphop!

This new quartet explores live dub styles with a roots/jazz inflection - made up of members of Agency Dub Collective & Dub Dub Goose and hosting special guests on vocals Alec Randles (Kopasetic) and MC Tomasky as they experiment with DEEP DUB foundations and surreal atmospheres. New worlds collide in a space echo with original tunes and rare versions from this new dub juggernaut.

Raw hot steppas and rockers beats are provided by Simon (Coolio Desgracias) Milman and Liam O'Connell (3oB) with Matthew Lustri on spaceous and surreal guitar and Joel Dreezer out front on flute and keytar. The group aim to break new ground with a few classic manoeuvres.

THE KINGSTONS - (Facebook)
The Kingston play timeless summer Rocksteady and 60s Ska taking you back to the days when Jamaican Music ruled the airways

Noticing that there was a total lack of Rocksteady and 60s Ska Bands in CBR - founders Brett + Elrond teamed up with Liam and Dan to start the Kingstons, later coaxing local Ska legends the Lind Brothers and Rohan "Rudy" Dadswell out of their music retirement to form the ultimate lineup.
The Kingstons now boast that it has former members of F-Troop,the Untouchables, Hell yes,the JuJu Men, Velvet Jones, the Dreamlanders, Charlie's Children and Agency Dub Collective.
With such a fine musical pedigree and extensive knowledge of classic Jamaican Rocksteady, the Kingstons put an energetic, Ozzie take on this treasured and influential genre, whilst adding to the repertoire with some great originals.
