Famous for a being a fantastic live band\, The Riffs have appeared all ar ound the UK and Ireland as well as in Austria\, Belgium\, France\, Germany \, Italy\, Holland and Spain.\nThe Riffs have shared the billing with Laur el Aitken\, Madness\, The Specials\, The Skatalites\, The Selecter\, Nevil le Staple\, Edwin Starr\, Desmond Dekker\, Bad Manners and loads of others .  When The Specials reformed in the 1990s\, The Riffs were the support a ct for their first gig at London’s Mean Fiddler. The band have also welc omed Buster Bloodvessel\, Dave Barker\, Winston ‘Mr Fixit’ Francis and Paul Fox of The Ruts to the stage as special guests.\nThe band returned i n 2011 with a triumphant comeback at London’s 100 Club and with a first new album in donkeys years in August 2013 – FUTURE. The band’s latest EP release ‘Wiggle’\, released in the Spring of 2021 can be bought at all live shows and streamed online as The Riffs continue with their unique take on original ska and reggae they have become known for.\nStill bringi ng the party to live venues across the UK and beyond\, from Darlington to Dortmund and everywhere in between\, The Riffs are in their greatest form to date and a true must see.\nThe Riffs are Spenny (guitar\, vocals)\, Cle m (drums)\, Stevo (keys\, vocals)\, Jon (bass) and Adam (Harmonica).\nPlus support from Roots Garden ATTACH;FMTTYPE=image/jpeg: 2023/01/Riffs2023.jpg END:VEVENT BEGIN:VTIMEZONE TZID:Europe/London X-LIC-LOCATION:Europe/London BEGIN:DAYLIGHT DTSTART:20230326T020000 TZOFFSETFROM:+0000 TZOFFSETTO:+0100 TZNAME:BST END:DAYLIGHT END:VTIMEZONE END:VCALENDAR
