If ever there was a group tailor made for festival sets under sunny skies, it’s Gentleman’s Dub Club. With bright horns, buoyant bass lines and enough positive energy to transform any field into a Jamaican beach party, The Leeds outfit's popularity is easy to comprehend.

The Gentlemen bonded in 2006 while at uni in Leeds over a shared love of the dub and soundsystem scene, excursions to the city’s SubDub night evolving from a monthly night out into a band on a mission from dub.

Vocalist Jonathan Scratchley is deeply embedded in the festival scene as co-founder of Croatia’s Outlook Festival, a regular haunt for his band since 2008. Over the years since, they’ve appeared at major UK festivals from Glastonbury to Boomtown, still finding time to release five studio albums, two EPs and a plethora of singles and remixes, including 2019’s 100% with Brummie reggae star Bitty McLean.

Other collaborations have included the likes of Brad Ellis (The Next Men), Fat Freddy's Drop, Prince Fatty, Hollie Cook, Lady Chann, Horseman, Joe Dukie, Shapeshifter and Mungo’s Hi Fi and the band have toured alongside The Streets, Roots Manuva and The Wailers.

In 2019, the band released their fifth album, Lost In Space, followed by a solid year of relentless touring. In August 2020, they announced their Down To Earth UK tour for 2021, kicking off in Brighton in March.
