Gentleman’s Dub Club will be bringing their eclectic dub/ska/reggae show to the UEA this weekend.

The show on Saturday, March 19, will be in support of their seventh album, Down To Earth, which was launched last year and included Honey featuring Hollie Cook.

The band – who have been around since 2006 – have promised some “special treats” during the current run of rearranged shows.

“The first gig back we played [after lockdown] was at SheepFest, which is at a sheep-themed amusement park in north Devon,” said bassist Toby Davies.

“We eased into it, it was all good and a nice set-up, and then there was suddenly this moment where it felt like everything just ramped up, but it wasn’t coming from us or the crowd specifically.

“It was just like everyone woke up and we all realised collectively that we were here again, and everything dialled up to the max.

“The energy from that point on was unbelievable. We’d done a few socially distanced gigs before that, which were great, but there was still that insecurity looming over everything in the summer, so when it finally got back to proper shows, it was an incredible feeling.

“We got a really good taste of it there and at places like Boardmasters, but it’s the tour in March where it’s really going to hit home for sure. We’ve got some special treats prepared.”
