A gig where the whole audience relax and get their dancing shoes on always makes for a great festival, and if you are after a laid-back gig of ska, rocksteady and reggae, Count Bobo and the Bullion are that band.

The boys from Bristol and Bath play traditional saxophone-led and vocal harmony ska and rocksteady music and have just recorded their debut album at the Bristol Tape Rooms, taking influence from the likes of Roland Alphonso, Jackie Mittoo and Skatalites. They tried to capture the vintage analogue sound of Jamaican ska from the ‘60s and early ‘70s by recording the album live straight to an 8-track reel-to-reel tape machine, occasionally overdubbing some percussion and harmonies.
