Description

All Day Blow-out Reggae Tribute to Bob Marley!

Steel Pulse, the internationally acclaimed reggae band who began life in the back streets of Birmingham, England in the early Seventies, are still very much alive today, some thirty years later. The band are renowned for their commitment to their musical message of fighting injustice, educating the masses and creating positive forces. They take their music around the globe and have been firmly established at the top of my own diverse musical tastes, cemented once I'd witnessed their incredibly powerful live act at Cheltenham Town Hall in late 1978, at the height of the punk rock and reggae collaboration 'Rock Against Racism'. In a roller coaster career spanning the next two decades and more, Steel Pulse have consistently surprised and delighted me with their innovative and infectious style of conscious reggae music, led from the front by the melodious tones of David Hinds. Nobody else does it better. - andybrouwer.co.uk
