Sunny Coast Rude Boys

The Award winning ‘Sunny Coast Rude Boys’ are favourites on the festival circuit! A 10 piece soundwave playing uplifting Ska & Reggae drawing on musical influences that have shaped this genre from the original Jamaican movement through to UK Two Tone.

If you like a energetic, fun gig, dancing to music from The Specials, Madness, The Beat, UB40, Toots & The Maytals and some beautifully crafted originals…. This is the band for you! The band has crafted their sound with unexpected arrangements and seductive harmonies, a powerful horn section and foot-stomping drums. A must see!
