Bristol Reggae Orchestra is one of the UKâ€™s most unique, inspiring and uplifting community projects. Set up in early 2010, its debut sold out St Georgeâ€™s in Bristol, a renowned classical music venue, and turned it into a seething dance hall. Since then, performances at local festivals, in the St Paulâ€™s community and around the southwest have confirmed the Reggae Orchestra as one to watch.
We are a collective of 40 local musicians, drawing our influences from reggae, ska, jazz and classical music, and include in our ranks professional musicians, students, hobbyists and session players, as well as those who have rarely played in public before. We play a compelling repertoire drawn from bravely crafted originals, many from talented composers in St Paulâ€™s and the wider Bristol area, as well as reggae and ska classics from the likes of Bob Marley and Lord Tanamo.
Originally called â€˜The St Paulâ€™s Reggae Orchestraâ€™, the group was renamed â€˜The Bristol Reggae Orchestraâ€™ mid-2010 to reflect its wider scope, although it still remains true to its roots in St Paulâ€™s where it rehearses on a weekly basis.
â€œThe band swoops in with the precision of a swing orchestra on holiday in Jamaica. Itâ€™s one of Bristolâ€™s most exciting music projects.â€ Venue Magazine.
