Chainska Brassika are pleased to announce they will be heading out on a UK tour in November.
The band will be visiting some of their favourite cities and bringing their trademark good time vibes with them. They are scheduled to perform live in Brighton on Wednesday 7 November at the Hope & Ruin – tickets here.
London based 8-piece Chainska Brassika are firm party-starting favourites, rocking crowds from Glastonbury to Notting Hill Carnival and Rototom Sunsplash to Outlook.
Regularly found opening for 2-Tone legends Madness, Chainska are at the forefront of the new UK ska movement. Their high-energy live show has taken the band to some of the ska and reggae world’s biggest stages, spreading their contagious horn-driven anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and and even on a full-blown tour of Jamaica.
Their latest album Harry J Business was recorded at Harry J Studios in Kingston with double Grammy award winning producer Stephen Stewart.
The album featured a rare guest performance from reggae legend Toots Hibbert, of Toots and the Maytals, and has gained major airplay across BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music and BBC Radio 1xtra.
The album gained a 6-page review in the world’s biggest reggae magazine, Festiville, and got them invited to showcase at the SXSW Festival in Texas.
With their classic ska sound backed up by a dynamite brass section, Chainska Brassika continue to win over new fans and delight their faithful following with their undeniable crowd pleasing formula.
“Well, they got me going in the studio, I can tell you … I think that is absolutely brilliant”
