Rhoda Dakar live and free at Filthys

by Modculture 28 June, 2006

Rhoda_2 Looking for a great night out without spending a penny? You need to get yourself down to Filthy MacNastys in London, where, by popular demand, Rhoda Dakar is back playing live on Thursday 29th June – and it’s free to get in!

Rhoda Dakar began her career with Ska/Two Tone band The Bodysnatchers, and very soon was regular guest vocalist with The Specials . She had chart success with ‘Do Rock Steady’ before singing on perhaps her most famous and notable release ‘The Boiler’ – much played by the late John Peel.

With Gerry Dammers she sang on the seminal single ‘Free Nelson Mandela’ under the The Special AKA monika. Revisiting her Two Tone roots she has recently sang with The Selecter and appeared on tour with other 2 Toners Dave Wakeling (The Beat), Roddy Radiation of the The Specials and of course Pauline Black & Nick Welsh (The Selecter). 

It all starts at 8pm – don’t be late.

If you want to see how good she is check this out this YouTube clip.
