Reggae sensation Royal Sounds appear at Chesil Rocks this year – the first time we have had a reggae band!

 

Last year they toured across the UK and Europe, captivating audiences with their stage presence and thought-provoking lyrics on the oppression and social injustices within modern day society. Their music is inspired by Rastafari culture and contains profound messages of love and the importance of unity.

 

Their latest single Raggamuffin Soliders is taken from their new album Master Peace and ‘Royal Sounds are a force to be reckoned with as 2024 is set to be another unstoppable year for the band.' - Shades of Reality

Dorset Wrecks

Dorset Wrecks had their first gig in 2013, singing sea shanties in Weymouth harbour on a fishing boat named MV Freedom - helping to raise funds to take disabled people on sea cruises. 

They rehearse weekly, learning new songs improving harmonies, singing at weddings and festivals, and at fundraising and other events.

Their first CD of sea shanties and songs of the sea was entitled Bright Eyed ‘N’ Stiff - alluding to how to determine the freshness of fish being purchased, and their second CD was called Mackerel Skies. 

Dorset Wrecks do much to support local charities such as the Rotary Club, Fayre In The Square, the RNLI, SSAFA and numerous other causes.

Here are the wrecks singing at the Teignmouth Sea Shanty Festival last September:
