Date and Time

Sunday, February 18th, 2024 6:00 pm



Line up -

Tessa Pollitt, Danny Dread, Soft Wax, Doc Murdoch & Prince Fatty


The Deptford Dub Club features a feast of talent, headlined by Tessa Pollitt. She’ll
be spinning 100% Roots and Culture Reggae, in Soundsystem style. Tessa was the
bassie throughout the career of legendary sonic warriors The Slits, who’s seminal
70s LP “The Cut” was produced by Dub-master Dennis Bovell. The inimitable Tessa
draws from a deep love of the music and selects from a mighty collection, mostly
amassed back in the day. Her deep and heavy, dubwise sets are always a great
pleasure and are consistently warmly received, both at the D.D.C. and at diverse
venues like the I.C.A., the BFI and the London Ska Festival.

Another of our amigos, Danny Dread, ( also known as Ras Danny Mosiah,) will be
putting the needle to the groove on the wheels of steel too, to close the show. The
mighty Danny will need no introduction to regulars at The Deptford Dub Club, as he
is a stalwart. He’s more widely known through his work with the Jah Shaka
Soundsystem, over many years. His sets are always wicked. Also guesting on the
mic will be various club favourites.

Resident selector, Soft Wax, will also be spinning, to warm up proceedings. Expect a
carefully chosen selection of Ska, Rocksteady and early Reggae from him early on.
Then he’ll be joined by the usual instrumental and vocal accompanists, live and
direct on the mic., for which the club has become known. Our resident singjay, the
mighty Singjay Doc Murdoch, will be MCing right throughout the session. Waxy will
be accompanied by very special guests, including our fresh horns crew, led by
Tombone and Natty. Waxy will also be on SoundFX during Tessa’s set.

Throughout the evening the great Prince Fatty will be on the desk, ensuring a rich,
full and deep sound from the Soundsystem. The sounds will also be piped out into
the glorious garden. Come on down, in your dancing shoes and warm-up for Spring.
