BOB TAYLOR then TOBY BARELLI
Saturday 14th April 2018. 10am – 12 noon. Venue opens at 9.30am
Laid back covers and originals from Bob Taylor followed by “explosive” roots and blues guitarist Toby Barelli.
In 2005 Toby Barelli aka KING SIZE SLIM began experimenting with a new sound. A sound fully conscious of its roots but with a new story to tell. Having spent the previous 4 years touring and recording with TwoTone pioneers ‘The Selecter’ along with other Ska and Reggae luminaries, the sound was always going to be rhythm led, heavy on the bass and rootsy in the melody.
Big warm tones from his resonator guitar with a powerful and direct vocal style became the trademarks of the sound. Add rolling grooves, multi-layered percussion,vocals, harmonicas and myriad shakers to create a heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet.
With regret, the venue is below ground on split levels and has no wheelchair access.
A Hearing loop is available.
