THE GENTLEMAN’S DUB CLUB
Gentleman’s Dub Club is a nine-piece band that formed in Leeds in early
2006. With a style based in dub, ska and roots reggae, GDC have burst
onto the UK circuit, rocking gigs and festivals up and down the country
with their super high energy show. Combining tight grooves and a
heavyweight sound, Gentleman’s Dub Club bring the party to crowds of
all ages hungry for a dance floor workout, with their gigs often ending in
a frenzied mosh pit reminiscent of a mid 80’s ska night. Live effects and
mixing make for a crystal clear sound, and the band’s larger than life
stage presence makes for a mesmerising experience.
The GDC have supported such acts as Roots Manuva, The Streets, The
Wailers, Finlay Quaye, Natty, The Bays, Beardyman, Zion Train and
Foreign Beggars Live Band. They have appeared at Glastonbury , Camp
Bestival Latitude Festival, Outlook Festival (Croatia) and Secret Garden
Party, and have played at some of the most prestigious venues in the
country, including Koko, The Coronet, The Jazz Café, Rock City
Nottingham and Carling Academy Oxford.
