The Brighton Ska Train is back in town! For the originals!
And this year we celebrate the 40th anniversary of 2Tone Records with a series of unmissable dances. Exploring the past, present and future influences of this seminal label that changed the face of British popular music and much more besides.
Kicking off with our big annual season opener on Saturday 9th March at The Volks Nightclub on Brighton beach. Featuring our resident legend and creator of The Specials and 2Tone Records himself, the mighty JERRY DAMMERS!
It’s always an unmissable night when ‘The General’ is at our controls. Coming with a massive three hour and more, all original vinyl dj set, showcasing his favourite music from the last 60 years. Music that inspired and continues to inspire the man responsible for the soundtrack to a generation. It’s nothing short of the finest dancefloor history lesson for all self-respecting rudeboys and girls. Plus everyone else besides. With anecdotes aplenty on the mic this is a session never to be missed.
Get your tickets in early for this one.
