Riotous campaigners for equality seven piece ska, reggae and punk band Bolshy play Alexander’s in Chester on Friday, November 21.

Liverpool-based musical septet Bolshy will bring their refreshing brand of boundary pushing ska punk to the city.

They combine klezmer, afrobeat, dub funk and calypso styles, infusing their infectious music with messages of anti-capitalism and equality.

Bolshy kicked off their journey in summer 2012 busking on the streets of Liverpool then rushing off to play sweaty basement gigs.

Since then they’ve taken the UK underground scene by storm sharing stages with the likes of The Restarts, Prince Fatty, Dirty Revolution and Culture Shock.

They’ve played festivals alongside Neville Staples, Dreadzone and The Beat and performed at the end of a 50,000 strong NHS rally in Whitworth Park, Manchester.

Bolshy launched a crowdfunding campaign to release their debut EP which reached its £1,500 target in 17 days.

The Radical. Anarchic. Bolshy. Scouse. EP was released in June and has been featured by Four Culture (USA), Bido Lito, Do the Dog skazine and many more.

Tickets for their Chester gig are priced at £5 in advance – available from or by calling 01244 340005.
