Plus specials guests Captain Accident

Captain Accident is a reggae/ska/soul artist who creates a unique blend of rock-driven soulful roots reggae, ska, dub and rocksteady at his home studio in Cardiff. This sound is then brought to life on stage with the help of a collective of the finest musicians for an energetic live show guaranteed to get people up dancing. With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly infectious groove, there’s no standing still when Captain Accident and his clumsy companions hit the stage.

Through intensive touring of the UK and Europe, an abundance of video content, festival appearances and high-profile radio airplay, more and more people are becoming aware of the Captain’s unique sound. With an ever-growing fanbase and a live show gaining so much momentum in terms of sound and energy, Captain Accident and The Disasters are becoming harder and harder to ignore on the UK reggae/ska circuit and further afield.

Captain Accident and The Disasters were hand-picked to join reggae heroes Toots & the Maytals for a run of dates on their 2016 UK tour. After impressing the reggae legends, their fans and their agency, the band were then invited back out as full-tour support in 2017 and 2018, taking them to some of the UK’s most prestigious venues including London Barbican Theatre, Brighton Dome, Manchester Academy, Nottingham Rock City and more. During Toots’ 2017 “Bands in the Sands” appearance, the Captain was asked to join the band onstage to perform Monkey Man on guitar!
