The Band are based in Brighton and regularly plays in the Sussex area and the west country but will travel for events.
Jacquemo are a 7 piece ska/funk band from Brighton, a unique combination of pop ska and funk.
The last album "lucky sargent features some anthemic ska tunes such as the wheeliebin king which pokes fun at the small time businessman and part time diplomat. Now three years on from the creation of Jacquemo Nic Tribe is releasing the second album on which he is losing the cheeky chappie ska feel a bit in place of a richer more refined sound, his departure from the band Los Albertos in 2009 had a hangover effect (almost literally !) and after creating the band in NZ he has gone for a bit more of a world music feel to this album.
Nic has had much success in the TV music world having synchronisation rights on programs such as Desperate housewives and Mastercheif.
Now Nic has got a top end band behind him consisting of some of the best musicians from Brighton. The live set consists of music from the 2 albums and is quite varied but 100% dance music all the way.
Look out for this band in brighton and at the festivals this year highly original, great tunes and great lyrics!
