Dubvocaliza from London UK presents a crucial blend of rock dynamics and reggae vibes built on soulful, sometimes jazz tinged musicality. If you dig Bob Marley, Aswad, Steel Pulse you'll love Dubvocaliza, but likewise if you are a fan of Pink Floyd, Massive Attack or Marvin Gaye .
The band has been creating quite a stir on the music scene since formation in 2008.performing their original mix of lively and lyrical dub and reggae.
They are progressively inclined but pop sensibilities to the fore, Dennis Bovell’s Matumbi could also be a good touchstone for enjoying the wonderful dubvocaliza, a fantastic live band.
The band came about when dub poet , lead vocalist and song writer Barington Delevente and lead guitarist Kevin Draper, friends from a previous band came together by mutual interest in dub and reggae music.
They were later joined by drummer Matt Curr who stirred up the mix with his awesome and creative style, playing progressive rock, reggae and dub loops.
The combination fitted perfectly and gave Dubvocaliza that original and creative edge that defines the bands unique and distinctive sound.
Drawing their inspirations from Peter Tosh, Horace Andy, Ini Kamoze and other artists, dubvocaliza is an exciting, worldly and spiritually potent Fusion- Progressive-rock, reggae band , they represent what is magical about live music, the magic connections and expressions that touch people at their core.
The band's message is optimism, love, peace and universal healing.
The Dublin Castle is a legendary pub and music venue located 2 minutes away from Camden Town tube station. It has been run by the same family for over 28 years and features 4 live bands every night as well as a great selection of beers, ciders and wines.
There are DJs after the bands on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays and a fabulous jukebox in the front bar if you’re after a more relaxed atmosphere.
But what is it that makes the Dublin Castle the long-standing centre of the indie rock universe? Is it because it’s Madness’ birthplace? Because its stage has been graced by everyone from Blur, through Coldplay, Supergrass, The Killers, The Arctic Monkeys, Billy Bragg, etc? Is it because it was no surprise to see Amy Winehouse behind the bar serving costumers? Or Suggs? (who, mind you, tended to ignore costumers and serve himself) Or is it because far from being just another Camden venue it has established itself as an indie rock institution? The answer is that it’s not only because of its musical heritage that people come to the Dublin Castle, it’s because whilst you enjoy a pint, play some tunes on the jukebox, check out the live bands, get your dancing shoes on for our DJs, chat to our friendly staff or even stage-invade a little, you’re inadvertently being part of this movement the Dublin Castle leads, this cultural legacy. Expect no castle battlements. Just pure rock and roll royalty.
