GARFISH with very special guests Tony Hughes and Ras Roni

6 October 2023 7:00 pm


Reggae, rocksteady, ska and dub

A dedicated meditation on the instrumental style pioneered by old world Jamaican masters such as Sly and Robbie, Jackie Mittoo, Tommy McCook, Ernest Ranglin and The Skatalites, where jazz language meets the rhythms of Kingston Jamaica. Garfish have embraced and nurtured this musical heritage, showcasing the talents of some of Sydney’s most innovative and groovy musicians stretching out over hypnotic reggae beats.

For this very special, one off performance, Garfish will be joined by two of the greats, Tony Hughes and Ras Roni.
