Register: St Cross Ska and Reggae Concert



Renowned musicians The Rocksteady Royals will perform a one-hour concert with a programme that celebrates the history of ska and reggae music. The programme will span songs from the origins of ska through to well-known classics in reggae that came out of Jamaica in the sixties and seventies.

Hailing from the heart of London's rocksteady scene, The Rocksteady Royals are a London-based reggae and ska band whose infectious rhythms and soulful melodies have earned this vibrant collective its place as one of the capital's premier ambassadors of Jamaican music culture. They came together in Brixton in 2005 and influenced by legends like Bob Marley, Toots and the Maytals, and The Skatalites, they set out to craft their unique blend of an authentic Jamaican sound infused with a modern twist.

Fronted by the charismatic lead vocalist, Lyn Gerald whose voice embodies the spirit of reggae's storytelling tradition, The Rocksteady Royals have a line-up featuring some of London's most skilled musicians, including Derek ‘Bossman’ Thomas on guitar,  Spy on bass, Dennis Cross on keyboards and Drumming Argentinian Andres Pellegrino laying down the steady beats.
