DescriptionPRINCE BUSTER was a legendary Jamaican singer-songwriter and producer who passed away in 2016. The amazing records he released in the 1960s influenced and shaped the course of Jamaican contemporary music and created a legacy of work that would be drawn upon later by reggae and ska artists. For one night only, local heroes NATTY BO & THE TOP CATS will be honouring "The Voice Of The People" ( as he was known) by dipping into his massive repertoire featuring hits such as “Al Capone”, “One Step Beyond”, “Enjoy Yourself”, “Ten Commandments”, “Judge Dread” & “Take It Easy” to name but a few. Support comes from South London jazz sensation OSKA T + Camberwell Connection DJS DUBPLATE PEARL & MR SWING EASY. This concert is the second in a series in the stunning surroundings of the Sir John Soane designed Grade 1 listed St Peter’s Church, Walworth. We have very kindly been allowed to set up a bar + food stall INSIDE the church. Featuring draft beer by local brewer Orbit and vegan food prepared by Louie Louie, why not join us early and make a whole evening of it? ABOUT THE ARTISTS: Lead by local Walworth legend NATTY BO & featuring Miss Megu on Alto Sax the TOP CATS boast a strong front line of brass and a backbone of rhythm n bass ready to make even the most ardent wall flowers shimmy and shake... With band members having played in & with legends such as The Skatalites, Dennis Alcapone, Winston Reedy, Alton Ellis, Derrick Morgan, The Trojans & Desmond Dekker, we advise you to wear your best dancing shoes & be prepared to skank in the aisles!
