The BluebeatersWe’re extremely proud to present the return of one of the most exciting bands that ever existed; The Bluebeaters. Six years after their last gold-selling album ‘Combo’, released on Universal Music, The Bluebeaters are finally back with a brand new album. ‘Everybody Knows’ is the fifth studio album from the Italian rock steady & ska giants and the magic formula remains unchanged. The Bluebeaters take a bunch of hits from the past and present and re-arrange the songs as if they were recorded in Kingston, Jamaica in the 60s and early 70s. The classy musicianship of the combo, lead by original members and top musicians Mr T-bone (Derrick Morgan of New York Ska Jazz Ensemble and The Slackers) on trombone, Paolo “The Angelo” Parpaglione on sax, Count Ferdi on drums, Cato on guitar and Pat “Alton Ellis” Cosmo on vocals, enables them to give the songs a totally brand new life. All songs are cooked with The Bluebeater’s unique and super spicy Jamaican sauce. From Oasis’ ‘Roll With It’, to seminal punk hit ‘Teenage Kicks’, Kraftwerk’s ‘The Model’ or Neil Young’s titletrack, we’re in safe hands. The Bluebeaters deliver 14 scorching old school ska and reggae tracks with the power to set every dancefloor on fire.

Active since 1994 with four studio albums for V2 and Universal Music, plus two gold records under their belt, The Bluebeaters are top musicians in love with vintage Jamaican ska and reggae. Blessed by Ken Booth, during the last 20 years of their career they’ve headlined festivals like Rototom Sunsplash and International Ska Fest in London. Amongst their fans, there are folks like Gaz Mayall, David Rodigan and the legendary late lamented Lloyd Knibb (The Skatalites). Everybody Knows is pure gold from start to finish, so let the party start as we welcome back The Bluebeaters!

“A superb new album, as I have said many times on radio I am blown away by just how authentic their ska/rock steady sound is, quite incredible.” – David Rodigan (BBC Radio 1Xtra)
