ESPERANZA: ‘A nine-piece ska collective from Glasgow famed for live shows where their infectious rhythm has the crowd involuntarily jumping in time. In several hectic years of gigging around the UK, they have honed and perfected a high-tempo set, with superb self-penned songs, until there isn’t an ounce of fat left on it. The quality of the band’s live shows has led to them being increasingly in demand: playing at the 2014 Glasgow Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony; festivals up and down the country; and supporting some of the biggest names in ska, punk and reggae, including Toots and the Maytals, The Skatalites, The Wailers; Bad Manners, The Beat, The Selecter, Neville Staple, The Undertones, Fishbone, The Slackers and The Toasters.’ THE DUGHOOSE SKA BAN: ‘A collective of like-minded mates that enjoy all things SKA.’ LOCAL AUTHORITY: ‘Three piece from the West of Scotland, Local Authority are a loud and catchy sound. Fusing the genres of rock n roll, garage, indie and punk, they’re gaining traction in the live music scene.’ Thank you for the support and see you there! ??23 Promotions.
