ABOUT

GREAT OPPORTUNITY. 2 Tone, ska and Reggae members
Guildford, South London, Reading rough area.

I am currently seeking vocals, keys, sax and additional brass for my band 'Dirty Skank' Two Tone, ska and reggae tribute/covers.
Covid stopped us in our tracks and highlighted differences in commitment and motivation therefore touting for new members.
Drums, bass and guitar accounted for but keys, sax, and vox needed. Additional brass and guitar welcomed.

Own equipment and transport essential.

The plan is to work on a small set list to support other bands aiming to build a strong set of genre favourites with shared suggestions to be able to provide our own 20-30 song set.

I am well connected locally and in London for gig opportunities and recording. I was previously the drummer, lyricist and co founder of Hometown Hi-Fi and Audiotonic as well as being largely the driving force behind the two bands during their duration.

This is a great opportunity. I also have completed lyrics if the oportunity arose for writing originals.

I dont do things by halves HTHF played the MADNESS House of fun weekender having created our acclaimed "long gone" EP mixed by my friend Johnny Milton whos cv includes working with Aswad, Maxi Priest and Dreadzone to name but a few. We also headlined a sell out Agincourt gig supported by The Rebel Dread Don Letts on decks.
Other supports included The Neville Staple band and Lee Thompsons ska orchestra.

Audiotonic created an album 'Dreamland' mixed in part by another good friend Gary Mcpherson of Big Audio Dynamite 2 and Rotten Hill Gang fame in Mick Jones' bunker. We also supported Dreadzone and were played on Don Letts Culture Clash radio show.

So if you want in....pm me.

Commitment, motivation and band democracy are hugely important factors.... Im keen to build a succesful band with social medias, website and a busy calendar.

If you are too... I look forward to hearing from you
