The Protesters

BOOK NOW$15/$10

So what happens when members of Watussi, King Tide, The Subterranian's, The Melbourne Ska Orchestra (and more) come together to play?

These deep musicians bring their mix of tastes and cultures to meet on common ground. With their collective love of reggae and a firm handle on ‘the street’ they create the sounds synonymous with a small Caribbean island and set out to play it across the largest island in the world.

The Protesters' songs espouse a strong commitment to social and environmental justice. Saxophonist, Michael Brown’s trenchant creations are offset by smooth and soulful old school reggae riddims, fuelled by classy arrangements featuring a full complement of horns. The vocals of Pat Powell, delivers each message with urbanity, belying the scarcely concealed contempt between the lines.

Their music can be described as healing, enlightening or even cathartic, either way the positive vibrations of The Protesters reach out to all.
