The Bodysnatchers’ Rhoda Dakar hits grassroots live music venue The Night Owl this Saturday.
Ska and 2Tone legend Rhoda Dakar, formerly of The Bodysnatchers, is performing live with
her full band this Saturday 12th at The Night Owl in Digbeth!
Support comes from Carys Hannah, a Birmingham based performance poet and musician, & Sean Thompson DeWolfe, a performance poet & compere. Tickets include club night after with Slag Mag DJs Mazzy Snape & Emily Doyle aka OldBort.
Rhoda Dakar began her musical career as lead vocalist with all female 2Tone band, The
Bodysnatchers where they released just two singles – ‘Let’s Do Rocksteady’ and ‘Easy Life’.
She later went on to record and collaborate with huge names like The Specials and Madness,
appearing live with both bands. Now Rhoda embarks on a solo tour backed by a full live band, performing across the country, including a headliner at Birmingham’s soul and retro club, The Night Owl this Saturday 12th March.
Dakar has recently released her latest single, ‘The Man Who Sold The World’, a reggae cover of Bowie’s 1970 album track that was later made famous with Nirvana’s MTV Unplugged cover.
