Since late 2015 Dubheart have been involved in the filming of an exciting new music show called ‘UK’s best part time band’. The show is hosted by ranting and loveable Welsh comedian Rhod Gilbert. and three music legends and judges Midge Ure, Peter Hook and Jazzie B.
The programme is a showcase of established hard working band’s and their lives and jobs when not on the road gigging, the first show went to Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, and in big white van Midge Ure and Rhod travelled to see loads of bands eventually wittling the selection down to five, who went on to perform in a club in Belfast.
The second show went to the North of England with Peter Hook being the legend and judge for this episode, again many bands were visited, and climaxed in another live performance in Sheffield.
Then comes the Southern leg, featuring Jazzie B, they both came to visit Dubheart in keyboard player Dave’s front room where the band practice, it was just as surreal for the band to have two famous faces sitting on the sofa at the end of the room as it was for them to be faced with a full on dub reggae band thumping out the drums and bass in the living room of this suburban house in Bournemouth.
Find out how the band gets below!! And don’t forget to visit our shop to pick up the band’s brand new EP ‘Full Time Pressure’ featuring the cover tracks performed on the show!
