Reggae musician and producer DENNIS BOVELL will be serving as master of ceremonies at the Bristol Reggae Explosion Live show in Bristol later this month.
The former MATUMBI member went on to become a key figure in the lovers rock and dub genres, but is most widely known for his collaborations with LINTON KWESI JOHNSON.
Just last month BOVELL got back together with LKJ for a show at WOMAD in Wiltshire. He continues to record, produce and play live all over the world.
Among the wide range of artists on the Bristol Reggae Explosion Live bill are TALISMAN, JOSHUA MOSES and BUNNY MARRETT.
The big summer gig – put together by Bristol Archive Records and Midnight Mango – takes place on 26 August at the Big Top tent, Temple Meads, in Bristol.
The show starts at 8pm (running until 3am) and tickets are priced at £10 – available from the Bristol Ticket Shop and all the other usual outlets.
