Count Bobo are a 6 piece group from Bristol playing in the style of early ska and rocksteady. Formed in 2012, they perform a selection of covers from artists like The Skatalites, Roland Alphonso and Jackie Mittoo, more recently including their own material.
They released their debut album ‘Bird of Paradise’ on limited edition 12 inch vinyl. The album was recorded by their producer Drezz at ‘The Tape Rooms’. As a fully analogue studio, the band was able to record live and straight to tape in an attempt to emulate the records of their early influences.
They have since been gigging the UK festival, pub and club circuit including performances at Glastonbury, Green Man, Shambala, Secret Garden Party and Larmer Tree festival.
