Gentleman’s Dub Club have announced two shows down south at the tail end of winter, having been booked in for sets in Brighton and London on Friday 24th February and Friday 3rd March respectively. The dub, reggae and ska specialists will be looking forward to bringing their signature energy and enthusiasm to two fantastic venues as they take to the stage at Concorde 2 and Troxy.
Originally from Leeds, Gentleman’s Dub Club have made themselves a nationally renowned group thanks to some sterling performances up and down the country, squeezing nine members onto a stage and still finding plenty of room to get things moving with their upbeat brass-infused ska. A busy mix of upstroked guitars, saxophones, shuffled beats and punk-esque shouts, with a healthy side of trumpets, keys and dub bass for good measure, the Gentleman’s Dub Club sound is full and engulfing, making them an intense and exhilarating live band. This has earned them a long list of high-profile support slots for the likes of Roots Manuva, The Streets and The Wailers, during which time they’ve honed their act to become one of the best live reggae, ska and dub bands to still be skanking their way around the circuit.
In Brighton’s Concorde 2 and London’s Troxy, Gentleman’s Dub Club will be presented with two venues set up perfectly to showcase the band’s rich myriad of tones and textures, so this southern double header is looking like a good’un.
