Macka B (Full Band) + Support
Macka B has always been interested in music. At a very young age he was impressed by the heavyweight sound system Lord Barley, playing in the blues party next door. The vibrant reggae beat found a place in his heart that remains there to this very day. Curator of Macka Bs Medical Mondays & Wha me eat Wednesdays he is one of Britains most influential dancehall toasters, pushing the music back towards a Rastafarian political consciousness. His rough, gravelly vocals gave him an instantly identifiable sound, and his production chiefly handled by Mad Professor updated dub reggae techniques for the dancehall age, proving that the two sounds werent mutually exclusive. 2017 was witness to Macka Bs latest milestone. Hes dedication to the vegan lifestyle and spectacular weekly food updates allowed him to become a global viral success generating a staggering 50 Million views in less than a month! 2017 also sees him release his latest album Health is Wealth out on the legendary Greensleeves label.
