Skatalites in Bristol Review & Video
Here’s a review of our recent Trinity, Bristol show on May 16. It’s a well written piece with good info even if the writer, Darren Paul Thompson, was not too familiar with the band itself.
“Creating a rich sound between them, they were each allowed time for a solo to tear the place up in enjoyable fashion, often stretching song times close to ten minutes to accommodate their freestyling within the breakdowns. As a fan of live music, this was great news, especially given the ability of the musicians on stage, who effortlessly carved out their own narratives within each solo on offer.”
He says in the piece “As for the Skatalites, I’m very pleased that I managed to jump on the bandwagon late, rather than never, as whilst the wagon may now be considered vintage, the engine is still loud and there’s plenty more fuel in the tank.” It sounds like we have a new fan though and that’s the best part! We’re still gaining new fans around the world.
