Solo Banton the sound system DJ, well known for many dance floor smashers and collaborations with people like Dubkasm, Jahtari, Mungos Reality Shock and more, brings you the artist performance with a live band. A truly exciting showcase of great songs performed, extended and presented with the formidable Upper Cut Band. Solo Banton and The Upper Cut Band is a very hard combination to beat.
Solo and Upper Cut will be previewing tracks from a brand new EP recorded with the mighty Reality Shock Records and will bringing bring musical enjoyment to the Attic Bar.
The Upper Cut Band have been delivering their inimitable style of UK Roots Reggae since the summer of 2008 and have spent the past 2 years rocking festivals and clubs throughout Europe and the UK, sharing the stage with artists such as Alborosie and the Shengen Clan, The Skatalites, Earl 16, Macka B and Fantan Mojah,
With a unique combination of talented musicians they produce a rootsy stew of bright and breezy horns, wailing guitars, melodic keys and a dark and heavy drum and bass, giving a soundscape reminiscent of times gone by but wholly relevant to the here and now.
The dynamic of the band is such that the frontman position is kept open enabling them to interchange vocalists. In essence they are a session band, but can be seen performing regularly with an array of reggae artists with differing styles such as Solo Banton, Deadly Hunta, Prince Livijah, Lioness Fonts, Afrikan Simba, Errol Bellot and Chieftain Joseph.
Plus support from FYAH KEEPERS & PENG SOUND DJ
