Giuliano Palma & The Bluebeaters
18 July 2009
The Bluebeaters first release came in 1999, a cover album of tracks done in a ska style. The group decided to risk selling the album exclusively through the internet, though this proved to be a risk worth taking: sales of over 12,000 directly through their site www.thebluebeateaters.com. After signing with label V2 the record was re-released with two bonus tracks, and sales soared to 30,000 accompanied by a sell-out tour and an official bootleg Wonderful Live.
This was followed in 2005 by Long Playing, with 22 tracks proving the versatility and energy of the band. In March 2006 Jamaican-born Sheldon Gregg, whose credits include amongst others work with the New York Ska Jazz Ensemble. The bands latest offering, Boogaloo was released last October and includes the single Tutta Mia La Citt . Concert begins 9.30 p.m.
