Earl Gateshead has been big in the sound system scene for over thirty years, a reputation which has rightly seen him labelled as a reggae institution! He is the face of Trojan Sound who have gained worldwide recognition through stand out live shows and top quality releases. We are lucky enough to have him playing at Bar A Bar up close and personal and boy are you in for a treat.

Conscious Sounds are also responsible for producing the next single due out early 2013 on Reggae Roast Records so keep your ears and eyes peeled for that.
DJ Shepdog (Nice Up!) – DJ Shepdog is the man behind the hugely popular NICE UP! label & club night and responsible for some of the biggest reggae mash-ups in the last few years. Tunes such as “Bigger Than Jamrock”, “Skanking In The Way Of Control” and “Dare Man” have proved popular with DJs across the board and have earned Shep a reputation for being able to rock any dance. With a mission statement of “righteous party vibes” there’s always plenty of reggae, hip hop, dubstep and drum & bass thrown into the mix.
REGGAE ROAST – Need no introduction. Having spent all summer going from festival to club and back again, delighting crowds wherever they go with their uplifting selections and dirty bass lines, you know the temperature will be cranking up a couple of notches when Reggae Roast step up to the wheels of steel.
