Bruton Dub Club

Aprils' Bruton Dub Club live band are the “impossible not to dance to..”  One Style MDV, a London Reggae band who have been playing together for 30 years.  Hailed by their peers they have shared the stage with Aswad, Gregory Isaccs, Misty In Roots, Asian Dub Foundation, Maxi Priest, The Mad Professor. As well as 2 UK tours supporting Joe Strummer and The Latino Rockabilly War, and concerts with indie bands like Ffa Coffi Pawb, Yr Anhrefn, The La’s, The Blaggers and The Levellers.

One Style MDV have always maintained their aim to play live music which is what they have enjoyed the most.  Their unconventional simple line up of bass, guitar and drum has surprised audiences due to their overall sound, the dynamics they create and the movement within their music which has always set them apart from the rest.  They have always been described as "Tight" which is
their trademark.  Joining them on vocals we have Gaven of Korus fame.

The bands objective has always been to ensure that their lyrics had meaning which are uplifting or encourages the listener to think about themselves and the world we live in to compliment the music.  This added strength to the music is what has connected them to diverse communities and audiences they represent.  Incorporated with their individual personal influences that range from classic reggae, roots and culture, soul, blues, jazz, ska, rock, Hip Hop etc, its difficult to pigeon hole the band or put them in a single category although they have been compared to Steel Pulse, Sly and Robbie, The Wailers, Burning Spear and even The Police. They have had 5 releases to date, available on iTunes.
Hosted by Bruton Dub Club regular MC’s Clapper Priest and MC Mvp and with Bristols' Roots Inspiration Sound on the decks expect some heartical roots!
