A laid-back evening of subtle moves and tight grooves from jazz, soul, reggae, ska and beat poetry.
We are excited to be able to present this rescheduled Live is Alive performance celebrating Brighton's vital music scene.

Dakka Skanks bring hard reggae, ska, dub and punk rhythms together in a fresh style. Clara Byrne's mesmerising lead vocal cuts through like a wave of emotion, her lyrical integrity straight from the soul, with serious social and political issues explored through dramatic delivery.

Initially something of a social call, Super Dupes soon evolved into a zippy set of groovy and diverse material ranging somewhere between funk, jazz, Afrobeat and fusion. Super Dupes deliver melodic, hand clapping, foot stomping musical nuggets with passion and aplomb.
