Max Romeo (Jamaica)
Specially invited guest
Sunday 18th June 2017
Max Romeo is a roots reggae legend who has enjoyed top 10 hits across Europe. Max’s huge repertoire of songs have been sampled by the likes of Jay Z and The Prodigy and his Sefton Park set will no doubt close our 25th anniversary in style.
Max’s storied career took off when he signed a contract with Bunny Lee, one of the biggest producers of his time in Jamaica in the 60s. Hits such as Chase The Devil lead to international success and to performances across the world.
After joining forces with producer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Max’s style evolved from ‘Jamaican ska’ to ‘roots reggae’ that he still delivers with his spectacular live performances.
