Gentleman’s Dub Club are regular visitors to Norwich, thanks in large part to TrodThisLand/DubToJungle, and have built a large and devoted following. Their gigs are becoming the things of legend and this time they yet again sold out the OPEN venue, the banking hall no less.
Featuring impressive support from Hotsteppas, Rebel Lion & Chief Rockas the room was full of good vibes all through the night. David was wandering the dance floor among the audience playing sax while Finbarr was spinning the vinyl onstage and at 10:30pm Gentleman’s Dub Club came on to a warm ovation. This band are getting a huge and heavy sound and can work a crowd impressively, their energy is astonishing. They clearly have a great connection here and always remark upon it.
TROD THIS LAND is proud to present…
GENTLEMAN’S DUB CLUB @ Open!
Support from Hotsteppas, Rebel Lion & Chief Rockas!
Gentleman’s Dub Club are coming to Norwich to mash up Open!
With their lively combination of Dub, Reggae, Ska & Two Tone this is set to be a scorcher. GDC have mashed up festivals such as Boomtown Fair, Symmetry and Outlook Festival in Croatia with rammed dancefloors throughout their performance, and the highest energy levels from crowd and band alike. Expect to hear classics as well as new tracks off of their up and coming album ‘Dubtopia’!

This was one of those precious early spring weekends of glorious sunshine and good company giving a real taste of summer to come (hopefully!) and over the weekend I accompanied a visiting friend seeing some of the city and also some more music on Sunday at the Wildman for the incredible Coyote Wrecks, loud, rocking and very good. Afterwards migrating to the Ribs of Beef where Doozoot were playing, who sounded incredibly tight and professional that I initially thought I was hearing a jukebox but I was mainly outside enjoying the evening warmth and sunshine by the river.
