Specialive presents...Coventry

Our annual jaunt to to the home of 2-Tone

30th September 2017

7pm | The Arches | 22-23 Arches Industrial Estate, Spon End, Coventry CV1 3JQ

Our 1st headline band are THE ESTIMATORS

Formed in 2009 and hailing from London, these true Jamaican Ska music roots warriors have fabulous grooves, sensational horn section displays, and an overall band brilliance which captivates audiences completely. Resistance is futile. You WILL dance!

The only way to follow original 60’s Ska is to go 2Tone.

Special Brew from Coventry recorded “Little Bitch” for the first Specialized album and headlined the now legendary 1st Specialized gig at The Arches Coventry. The venue was packed to the rafters. The bar was packed to the optics. Even the beer garden was packed. Anyone who was there will never forget it.

And now after a 5 year gap, Special Brew are bringing their 2Tone magic back to The Arches.

The 3rd and final headline band are The Stiff Joints from Kidderminster, another band with Specialized pedigree.

The Stiff Joints recorded “Ackee 1,2,3” for ‘The Beat Teenage Cancer Album’, played at The Big One 2 and were featured on the limited edition Red Vinyl release. Since they played at The Big One 2, Stiff Joints have established themselves as everybody’s favourite 3rd wave Ska band. Regularly playing festivals like Boomtown and Godiva alongside the usual pubs and club circuit venues. The Stiff Joints have made themselves an unmissable act.

So there you have it.

3 types of Ska . 3 heavyweight headliners.

This year no frills, no distractions, just music.

And now you know what to do …

Saturday 30th September @ The Arches Coventry
