KIOKO are a group of like-minded, multicultural musicians who have embarked on a journey to bring people their own brand of pop.
A band of big personalities and even bigger song hooks, KIOKO pride themselves on writing accessible, head bopping tunes, but also take pride in the fact that their music is sociologically and politically relevant to today's ever changing society. 
Having performed with a diverse array of acts, including Tinie Tempah, The Wailers, The Specials and Lee 'Scratch' Perry. KIOKO have a wealth of performance experience and are set to win over audiences old and new with upcoming nationwide shows and E.P 'Let's Be Frank'.

Broken 3 Ways, a 7-piece ska-punk outfit from the Wirral, UK are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry. It is no surprise that their energetic live performance has helped grow a loyal fan base throughout the Wirral and Liverpool music scene.
Their signature sound in captures the raw essence of Ska-Punk with hard hitting dual vocals, Skanking guitars and addictive brass that take their influence from bands such as Streetlight manifesto, Sublime, Rancid, Reel Big Fish and Capdown.

Hailing from Surrey and South Wales, Tree House Fire are a 5-piece rock-reggae band that play their own style of upbeat, catchy songs with a dub reggae groove! With several tours of Europe under their belts, as well as radio play in America, Australia and on the UK’s BBC Radio 1, Tree House Fire have successfully introduced their style of music to a wide ranging audience

Made up of 10 players from many different styles of music, rock and roll, punk, Ska and traditional Brass band, the musicians have joined together to form this new group. 
Big Brass Ska was adopted as the bands new name mainly as a result of having a 4 piece brass section which gives an extra powerfull level to achieve the Fantastic SKA sound.
 Brass SKA. The most powerful SKA band in Dorset.
Covers music from Bad Manners, Madness, Specials and much more...

Slim Pickings are 8 strong Reggae/Dub force. 2016 saw them release their debut single 'Dem Fall' with a video to boot, which has been highly praised. Many members bring to the table different inspirations and influences, from 70/80's reggae, modern reggae to hip-hop.
Still in the baby years the band have quickly picked up a strong following through venue and festival dates all over the UK. The band are currently recording a  debut EP which is set to be released later in 2016!
Drawn together by their distinctly empty pockets and their collective love of reggae music, soon enough, a band was formed. Sometimes something just feels right, this wasnt one of those times but they did it anyway! Rehearsals were missed and debts were racked up, cables broke and pedals packed up, but despite all adversity Slim Pickings came out stronger than ever, with their own unique style of modern, urban energetic feel good reggae they turn anywhere they can afford to get to into a party. People have said things like 'That was cool' and 'I loved it' but its up to you to make your own decisions.
