The night pulls in a wide range of age groups, being loved by everyone from the faithful ska and reggae fans of the 70’s and 80’s as well as finding new younger reggae heads.

Nico Demus is particularly well known for finishing off the nights with a climactic ska set, although he also loves dancehall, Calypso and dub. His tastes lie in the old school side of reggae although there are many new bands creating music whose music he celebrates.

 Ally Baba arrived at Reggae through the tunes from the Jamaican songstresses of the 70’s. Now her set includes genius tracks by new artists who songs can’t help but rip into your boots, as well as fabulous reggae mash ups and remixes.

 Reggae Pie also has a stable of other DJs and bands, where no one Reggae Pie is like any other. For this third gig at the Globe in Hay however, it will be the founders themselves who will came to play for your ultimate enjoyment!

Saturday Shenanigans: Blackbeard's Tea Party 'Ten YAAR Anniversary Tour'

Blackbeard’s Tea Party’s bold and riotous modern folk rock is built for late nights and big stages. Traditional songs and tunes are given a heavy rock edge with earth shattering riffs, playful arrangements and driving dance rhythms. This is gutsy folk rock dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

The band celebrate a decade in music in 2019 and will commemorate this with their 'Ten YAAR Anniversary Tour' in the Autumn.

Blackbeard's Tea Party believe a live show should be a spectacle for the eyes as well as the ears. Outlandish outfits, costume changes, DIY props, unhinged stage antics and chaotic choreography all add up to an engaging, high-octane show that inevitably leaves audiences cheering for more.

Their most recent release, the 5-track EP ‘Leviathan!’, explores the romanticized glories and the full gruesome horrors of the 19th century whaling industry. The record brings with it a bigger, bolder sound and a revamped live show, employing a heftier rhythm section with their new double-Drum Kit set up.

‘Contemporary folk rock at its most infectious’ - R2

‘York’s answer to The Pogues, but with cleaner fingernails’ - The Telegraph

‘Blackbeard's Tea Party restored my faith in foot-tapping, fun, energy-packed music

recently. In short: they make shanties chic’ -Roger Crow, Huffington Post

‘Gloriously wild, gamely OTT and sharp. This is convincing and essential’ - fRoots 

‘Barnstorming buccaneers belting our riff-tastic folk rock’ - Songlines

Here are a few words from those who have seen and heard Black Eyed Dogs play:

“The other big performance on Friday was Black Eyed Dogs. You won't see a tighter band... their live version of 'Revelator' is possibly the most epic song currently being performed today. It ebbs and flows, hits breakneck jamming before slowing to a roll, quite honestly it's the song of the weekend.” - Digital fix (Black Deer Festival))

“Providing one of the festival’s highlights... the band challenged each other with swift musicianship, electric energy and a euphoric air of joy which was nothing short of intoxicating." - Line of best fit (Black Deer Festival)

“A trip through space and time via the folk roots of new world music.. the songs are incredible..” (Shindig)

Tickets are £10 - CASH ONLY. Available from the globe prior to the event and on the door.
