Yet another date has been added to the massive Pavilion Spring programme with reggae meisters Goldmaster Allstars providing the thrills on Friday 13 May...
The Goldmaster Allstars are a powerful and energetic live act, playing a selection of ska, rocksteady and reggae with epic ska instruments, smooth rocksteady vocals and rude rolling reggae riddims - and they never fail to get the audience out of their seats and skanking.
The Allstars have been gaining the attention of some key figures in the Jamaican music world and have gigged selectively in last three years playing London venues such as the Jazz Café, Camden, The Telegraph, Brixton, and The Cargo Club, Shoreditch.
In March 2003 Goldmasters headlined Camden Underworld alongside guest DJ
Mark Lamarr, coupled with an impromptu performance on stage by Jamaican R+B artist Owen Grey. Jamaican king of rocksteady Alton Ellis performed with the band throughout 2003 with headline performances in Paris, the Wales Summer Reggae Festival and the Jazz Café, Camden for the Ska Express launch album.
The Allstars have recently finishing their second album Influence Of The Masters, recording with studio one artist Mr Winston Francis aka ‘Mr Fix It’ and Mr AJ Franklin, formally of the hit seventies trio The Chosen Few.
Take the chance to experience the incredible performance of twelve musicians
performing in oneness on stage and creating the most sensational and original ska, rocksteady, reggae riddims. You won’t be able to stop yourself from skanking!
