Chainska Brassika are hitting the road this autumn for a UK headline tour, visiting some of their favourite cities and bringing their trademark good time vibes with them.

The London based 8-piece are firm party-starting favourites, rocking crowds from Glastonbury to Notting Hill Carnival and Rototom Sunplash to Outlook.

Regularly found opening for 2-Tone legends Madness, Chainska are at the forefront of the new UK Ska movement. Their high-energy live show has taken the band to some of the Ska & Reggae world’s biggest stages, spreading their contagious horn driven anthems across the UK, mainland Europe and and even on a full blown tour of Jamaica.

Their latest album ‘Harry J Business’ was recorded at Harry J Studios in Kingston with double Grammy award winning producer Stephen Stewart. The album featured a rare guest performance from reggae legend Toots Hibbert of Toots & The Maytals, and has gained major airplay across BBC Radio 2, BBC Radio 6 Music & BBC Radio 1xtra.

The album gained a 6-page review in the world’s biggest Reggae magazine ‘Festiville’ and got them invited to showcase at SXSW Festival in Texas.

With their classic Ska sound backed up by a dynamite brass section, Chainska Brassika continue to win over new fans and delight their faithful following with their undeniable crowd pleasing formula.

Catch the band at Glasgow Hug & Pint on Friday, November 2.
