Boy Le Monti
Delicious old school Ska and Rock Steady from Boy le Monti all the way from North Dorset, that well-known hotbed of Caribbean culture. Boy le Monti are a 5 piece band from North Dorset, England, with a distinctive take on early 1960’s Jamaican Ska & Rocksteady.
With their infectious, brass drenched sound suffused with sweet vocal harmonies, the irresistable grooves not only lift the spirits but also your dancing feet.
Playing venues as diverse as Gaz Mayalls St Moritz club Soho, The Hootenanny Brixton, pubs, clubs & parties through to the odd farm, stately home & castle, Boy le Monti have also played festivals including The Larmer Tree, Glastonbury, Party in the Park, The Bristol Festival, Vale Earth Fair, The Festival of Bryan & Earthwise. Along the way the band have supported The Beat, Skaville UK & The Destroyers.
