Mighty sounds of reggae to hit Ulverston
Last updated at 15:47, Thursday, 14 February 2013
MONSTER Monster teams up with Solfest’s popular House of Joy tent this weekend for another round of Reggae Reggae.
The infamous Jambeater Soundsystem, which features at the annual Cumbrian festival, will be heading down to Mackenzie’s, in Ulverston, on Saturday night.
The show will see founder Sky Banks take the driving seat for a night of reggae, dub, ska, dancehall, ragga and jungle music.
House Of Joy residents Love Kartel and CriminalJusticeSounds will also take to the decks, as well as sets from Monster Monster regulars Peter Kay, Spoovoy and Mister Monster.
Dave Crossley, aka Mister Monster, says: “During the summer of 2012 we held some really popular all-day parties in the beer gardens of the Swan and the Kings Head which saw hundreds of people head to Ulverston from all over the North West.
“We wanted to keep that spirit alive so decided to head indoors and make a club night out of it since there are literally no other venues in the area that cater for reggae and its associated genres.
“We have a really good relationship with Solfest and the House Of Joy and knew that our Reggae Monster club night had to involve them. Their home made Jambeater soundsystem is mighty – it is the kind of system that vibrates the pants on your legs, you can really feel the bass inside you and it’s perfect for the kind of bass-heavy skanking music that we will be playing.”
For a taste of what to expect, check out Mister Monster’s Reggae Radio show which can be heard on mixcloud and on local online station Sonic Zoo Radio.
Music at Saturday’s event runs from 9pm to 2.30am.
Tickets are available in advance from www.skiddle.com and a limited number of tickets will be available on the door.
