The show consists of a seven piece all strong female band (AKABU - QUEENS) and a male percussionist. A phenomenal unit to deliver a truly outstanding performance for the best reggae experiences you will ever have!
Akabu were awarded the Stereograph Foundation UK Gold Musicians Award on 20 Dec 2022. The award was given "for outstanding achievement on being the first all female band which is unique, also a remarkable contribution to the reggae music industry, showing versatility, which is definitely to be commended."
To add further to the appeal, official members of The Drifters will be supporting the main event with a 50mins+ performance of some of their most beloved legendary classics: Kissin' in the Back Row of the Movies, Saturday Night at the Movies, Up on the Roof, Stand By Me, This Magic Moment and many more.
This exhilarating euphoria of a show will have you singing and dancing from start to finish, to your most favourite renowned classics beloved all over the world.
Boasting style, grace, elegance and sophistication, panache in more ways to mention than one, this is a show that invites you all to come to the ball in your finest attire to celebrate an unforgettable era, paying a special tribute to the Frank Sinatra of reggae, the legendary "Sir John Holt".
IQ Michael has the moves, the looks, the charisma, a voice that thrills and everything else you could possibly ever ask for, to rekindle the magical reminiscent years of 1000 Volts of Holt.
"Although the Tide Is High… Time Is The Master… Killing Me Softly… I'd Love You To Want Me… Stoned Out of My Mind… Help Me Make It Through The Night?”
The ULTIMATE celebration of the sweet rhythmic and therapeutic vibes imbued in the sound of classical reggae.
