LEE SCRATCH PERRY PLAYS TWO DATES AT JAZZ CAFE
Grammy-winning dub music pioneer and icon Lee Scratch Perry plays two dates (Sunday 9th and Monday 10th October 2016) at London’s Jazz Café, performing alongside his full live band in a rare intimate setting.
One of the most important figures in music, Lee Scratch Perry has been at the forefront of dub and reggae since the late 50’s ska movement. Beginning his career as a DJ, Perry pioneered the “scratch” technique which has since been used by DJs everywhere. A formidable musician and producer, Perry has produced for the likes of The Wailers, Gregory Isaacs and the Clash.
Despite his long running rein in the music industry, Perry remains an enigmatic figure to this day only appearing for the occasional charismatic interview and the odd live performance. On stage his persona is unforgettable, at 80 years old he still thrills audiences with his innumerable hits and wild costumes.
A true legend, we can’t wait to welcome Lee Scratch Perry back to the Jazz Café.
