It has thirteen original and unique songs that will have you out of your seat and moving to the funkiest reggae beats this year.
Who’s the Daddy, which was the first song to be released from the album on Father’s Day 2014, was used by the charity Balls to Cancer to promote and help raise awareness on testicular cancer in men. The song also received air play time by local and hospital radio stations.
Following our performance at the local festival Lemonfest, BBC Introducing announced The Reggaskas as their undiscovered new band live on their show.
We were also asked by the charity The Specialized Project, a fantastic organisation that promotes music to raise funds and awareness of the teenage cancer trust and national foundation for youth music to join them in ‘The Big One’ Specialized Concert in 2015 and 2016 and play alongside artists from around the world. As part of their ‘specialized 4’ album, we recorded the Bob Marley classic ‘Redemption Song’ and we have featured on the 2016 ‘One Heart’ album with another Bob Marley classic, ’No Woman No Cry’.
We have also been honoured to have the help of well-known music producer Mr Richard Digby Smith, who has worked with a range of artists from Bob Marley to the London Symphony orchestra. He has co-produced the album helping us and adding his inspiration in to the album.
Originally from Devon the seven piece Reggae/Ska band was founded by brothers Mike and Steve Bourne, who have always had a passion and great understanding for music their whole life. They wanted to put their talents together along with a great young and talented singer Lizy Eames, who has a distinctive and notable voice together back by saxophone, trumpet, guitar and upbeat rhythm section of drums, keyboard and bass to bring the whole bands vibe together.
The album promotion gig will be held at the Jolly Farmer Pub in Newton Abbot on the same day as the album is released on the 15th July 2016. The Reggaskas will be supported by blues Reggae fusion band, ‘Datura’ and also reggae producer ‘The Riviera Rocker’.
