SN Dubstation

Local Swindon boys whose musical souls hail from somewhere a long way away. We are not talking London here, we’re talking Kingston, Jamaica!

We cannot believe we’ve managed this but, after a hiatus of over 5 years, the mighty SN Dubstation are back once again with their fun and flavour filled west country take on ska and reggae.

No strangers to festival stages, they headlined The Shuffle in 2015, 2016 and 2018, and played at the only slightly less well-known Boomtown Festival back in 2018.

If you’re a fan of reggae, dub, ska, or just great vibes, then this 7 piece party machine is guaranteed to get you on your feet.

Gaz Brookfield & tHE Company of thieves

 

West country based, Gaz Brookfield, is predominantly a solo acoustic musician.  Although, on occasion you will find him on stage with his band, The Company of Thieves. 

 

Since winning Acoustic Magazine’s Singer/songwriter of the year way back in 2010 he has spent the last 14 years on the road, building a strong and loyal following all over the UK, and beyond. 

 

He was the first independent musician to sell out Bristol’s, The Fleece, (450 cap), and The Bierkeller, (750 cap) and more recently, SWX, (1000 cap). 

 

With nine studio albums under his belt, the latest of which, “Morning Walking Club”, hitting #1 in the Official UK Folk Album Charts, #3 in the Official Indie Album Breaker Charts, #6 in the Official Download Charts, #10 in the Official Indie Album Charts, and even 37 in the main Official Album Charts.

 

Not a bad result for this fiercely independent musician , with no record label, no manager, no agent - just a guitar, a van, and a steadfastly belligerent refusal to give in.
