Promotions I have been playing ‘the best’ venues along the Bournemouth to Poole strip including the defunct Jumpin Jaks, Poole Lighthouse, 02 Acadamy Bournemouth (Opera House) Mr Kyps all 3 venues on Bournemouth Pier, Railway Social Club (Punk nights), Landmarc to name but a few!


Sounds Of The Suburbs Pioneering the current ‘SKA SCENE‘ in Bournemouth the first night began over 13 years ago with the late and great Mr Desmond Dekker (RIP). So many fantastic bands in 100+ live promotions. We did our first three day mini ‘FEASTFORALL’ in Wimborne in 2007 and have now done our first ‘Official’ FESTIVAL in Bournemouth May 15 with ‘The Members’ headlining! So much fun and laughs inbetween.

2007 was the start of our Bi-Monthly night (Soul On The Sea) in arguably the most prestigious of venues Bournemouth has to offer ‘Key West Restaurant’ on Bournemouth Pier. With the addition of the second ‘Reggae’ room a year later this is now one of the most successful nights ‘of the era’ on the South Coast open to all ages always!
