Count Bobo are a six-piece from Bristol playing in the style of early ska and rocksteady. Formed in 2012, they perform a selection of covers from artists like The Skatalites, Roland Alphonso and Jackie Mittoo, more recently including their own material. Count Bobo are a part of the Bristol based collective ‘Bloom’.
Their debut album ‘Bird of Paradise’ was released on limited edition 12 inch vinyl in 2015, recorded by their producer Drezz at ‘The Tape Rooms’. As a fully analogue studio, the band was able to record live and straight to tape in an attempt to emulate the records of their early influences. Their second album is due for release in 2017.
