Things get hotter in the summer with 2 blinding live acts at Dumplins Live Ska June's party.
Bands: The Kubricks, Maddy Carty
DJs: Belfast Eric, One Dropper Ska, Reggae, Rocksteady DJ
With influences spanning the greats of British Ska mixed in with Jazz, Rock, Northern Soul & Pop, The Kubricks are an absolute must for fans of Ska, Rock & Pop. In the summer of 2013 they released their first record.
'Wasters & Wannabes' is the debut release from the 7-piece band and features five stonking Ska-infused tracks. Kicking off with the brash tale of modern day disaffected youth ('Rash Behaviour') before introducing, Charlie, the lovable local rogue that everyone knows ('Skallywags') along the way. Delivering infectious hit after hit, these well-sculpted songs showcase a real talent for witty tongue-in-cheek observations about modern living in London.
The songs, conceived in London's East End during the Olympic Summer of 2012, were then recorded under the watchful eye of producer Andrew Tulloch (Robbie Williams, The Charlatans, Madness) at The Blue Studio, London. The hard work paid off as, shortly after release, lead single 'Waster' was chosen by DJ Sarah Champion to feature on her weekly 'Sunday Night Music Club' show on Absolute Radio.
If you haven't done so already, get yourself down to a gig to see what all the fuss is about.
South London-born singer/songwriter Maddy Carty is an ex-BRIT School student, in the same school year as Adele and Jessie J. Maddy went on to study composition and performance at Leeds College of Music. After graduating, she headed back to London to form her own band, which includes Amy Winehouse’s talented former guitarist, Robin Banerjee.
Drawing her inspiration from Bob Marley, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, India.Arie and Van Morrison, Maddy writes all her own material. She has recently performed at top London venues including Ronnie Scott’s Bar, the Troubadour in Earls Court, the Hootananny in Brixton, the Half Moon in Putney, and has also appeared at Rootikal - David Rodigan’s club night in Shoreditch. Recent festivals include the Tolpuddle Festival, and the International Ska Festival in March 2013. Maddy’s debut album is released later this year.
We are really looking forward to Maddy playing at the club after having seeing her amazing performance at Skamouth weekend last March.
Expect another heavy partying night plus the usual shenanigans by residents DJs Belfast Eric and One Dropper.
