Reggae legends Toots & The Maytals head to Bristol O2 Academy

Reggae fans will be pleased to learn that seventies legends Toots and the Maytals will soon be appearing at the Bristol O2 Academy in July.

This is a gig not to be missed. Ska and reggae artists The Maytals will be performing tracks from their brilliant back catalogue - and with hits like ‘Pressure Drop’, ‘Monkey Man’ and ‘Funky Kingston’ to name just a few - there is no way you’ll be able to resist getting up and having a boogie.

If the chance to see these living reggae legends on a lovely summer evening in our own fair city wasn’t enough, they are being supported by some of the crème de la crème of Bristol’s own musical talent.

Also performing are Jazz Reggae Sessions (from the creators of Dub from Atlantis, one of Bristol’s best know reggae artists), and the brilliant Yes Sir Boss!, a hotly tipped funky reggae six piece who are rumoured to be in the early stages of recording their new album. So get in there before they get big! Reggae/hip hop DJ Mr Benn is also on the bill.

Doors open at 8PM on the night, and standard tickets cost £20. Expect a lively, fun and upbeat evening, with skankin’ aplenty!
