Hi,
I've been told by a reggae singer like me that his band is performing at Hard Rock cafe Singapore on every 1st Sunday of every month!

By the way, are you musician??

Cheers.

Hi Everyone,

I am new in Singapore and was wondering if there are any clubs that play reggae sets in Singapore?

I love Reggae and Soca and haven't heard any here....

Thanks...[/quote]

Reggae does exist in Singapore. The Bushmen is one of the local reggae band. They were performing at the Hard Rock Cafe but since I've grown old and moved on beyond the clubbing scene, I'm not sure if they're still performing at the HRC.

Perhaps, you would like to give HRC a friendly tinker and try to find where the Bushmen are. They can be found on MySpace though.

Thanks for visiting my profice.
Cheers!!

Hey guys,

We got sick of the lack of Island tunes here too, so we started our own sound system. If you're still here, check out straitssoundsystem.wordpress.com - we play about once a month at various locations around town. Outdoors, roots for the people. Hit us up by email if you want to be notified of upcoming gigs!

straitssoundsystem@gmail.com

Cheers

Tom

There is a Filipino Reggae / Ska band called Lupa & the Superstars who are fantastic - so good I booked them for my wedding last year. They only place I know of them playing is The Prince of Wales on Dunlop Street in Little India, but it's not every week so you would need to call the bar or go to their website.
