Based mostly in Nuneaton town just next to the original city of two-tone, Coventry, RudeSix are a six-piece band who play ska and reggae music in their own unique way. Originally formed as a continuation of a school ‘soul band’, they formerly played together as ‘The Press’; covering soul, blues and RnB hits. However after a few lineup changes over the years and as the members simultaneously grew more passionate to ska and reggae music they felt change was needed.>/span>
In the summer of 2018, RudeSix was born. The band revamped their sound and image and headed to the studio to record their debut EP ‘Trip Club’, described as “feisty female vocals dancing over edgy and infectious ska & reggae rhythms” by the highly acclaimed ‘Do The Dog’ ska fanzine, adding “Well worth a listen is RudeSix’s fab debut EP, titled ‘Trip Club’.”
