Testimonials and Reviews

"Basil Gabbidon was the founding member of British reggae legends, Steel Pulse. After four successful albums and three Grammy nominations with the band, Basil left to form the Reggae Rock band ‘Bassdance’, producing and recording two albums ‘Loud’ and ‘Louder’. Now Basil Gabbdion is back with a supergroup, the eponymously named GABBIDON – a reggae band that throws rock, ska and jazz into the mix. Gabbidon are slick finely crafted reggae music, which gets into your head and instinctively moves your feet."

"GABBIDON is the brainchild of the hugely talented lead guitarist Basil Gabbidon, the founding member of reggae legends Steel Pulse in the '70s. GABBIDON is an eclectic grouping of musicians dedicated to giving their audience a good time with their fusion of reggae, rock, ska and jazz styles meshed alongwith catchy rhythms and soulful harmonies. GABBIDON have played at various clubs, international venues and across the UK appearing festivals such as Reggae Rockz, Brixton Academy on the same bill as Lee Perry, Brockwell Park, Glastonbury. Each member of the band has roots in Birmingham and the line-up can alter depending on the particular performance. Basil's own career spanned four albums with Steel Pulse before he enjoyed success in the '80s and '90s with Bass Dance, alongside his brother Colin on drums and vocalist Lee Alexander."
