Macka B & The Roots Ragga Band

+ Lionstar

British reggae star Macka B will be coming to Exeter on the 12th October as part of his run of dates across the UK that will see the influential dancehall toaster deliver tracks from a career that spans over thirty years.

As a practising Rastafari, Macka B’s music is based around the political and spiritual message of the religion, with an often light and humorous touch. Working with the Mad Professor throughout his career, he has combined dancehall and dub styles of reggae, although has avoided a more commercial crossover approach.

From his debut record Sign Of The Times which was released in 1981 to his most recent release 2017’s Health Is Wealth, Macka B has shared important messages through his music and has gained a loyal legion of fans in the process. Aside from his laid back reggae beats, Macka B’s videos are almost as legendary – with Cucumber adding massively to the singer’s cult status having gone viral across the world.
