Hertford Music Festival is gearing up for next year's Musical Mystery Tour with a fundraiser/showcase at Hertford House Hotel Lounge on Friday 6th November.
The events features raggae outfit The SGs, with support from Los Ladrones Del Amor and The Real McKoys, along with DJs Kev Saunders and Stone Lion Hifi.
Having worked with some of the greats in Jamaican and UK music The SGs formed through their love of reggae three years ago, with a sound reminiscent of the classic roots bands along with some sweet lovers rock. Their original material has won over DJs and sound systems, getting them airplay on 'Revelation Time' Cambridge105 ,Three Counties Radio and 'Roots, Reggae and Bass' online and their storming live sets have won over audiences in support slots for legends such as Lee Perry and Courtney pine ... One Love!
Then there's latin tinged acoustic rock (Latin Noir) from Los Ladrones Del Amor, and The Real McCoys (both of which also played the White Hart at the Musical Mystery Tour),
The Real McKoys are a "cowboy-brokeback" gimmick band, that covers 80's ballads but turn them into Punk Rock classics! Ever thought, "Fuck, this 80's pop song could do with some rocking guitars and some big drums!"? Well, that's exactly what they've done - last year that raucous, riotous and hilarious format took them to number 52 in the Rock charts!!
Also: DJ Kev Saunders playing indie, reggae, latin, ska and punky reggae and Stone Lion Hifi - serious reggae sound system stylee into the small hours. £7 on the door to you guv - or get tickets in advance from www.billeto.co.uk.
