JAB JAB

Jab Jab are back! The acclaimed 70s Huddersfield Rock Reggae band are reforming for their first gig together in 30 years to give you a stomping good time at the Holmfirth Summer Ska Splash.

Breaking musical boundaries with their unique fusion of punky ska rock reggae with calypso and Afro beats, Jab Jab played over 200 gigs a year throughout the UK and Europe. They played with many famous bands including The Jam, Dire Straits, Chic, Boomtown Rats, Steel Pulse, Dave and Ansell Collins and The Clash. Recordings have recently been remastered so that fans can enjoy their music again and their fascinating story is the subject of a documentary film now in production.

Joe, frontman says Jab Jab are here to “make the bad times good and the good times better”. So get ready for Charlie, Joe, Skinhead Dick and Rombozo to Jab some music into your soul! www.jabjab.co
