Salutation Dub Collective
Spawned early in 2013, this ten-headed beast emerged and stormed Manchester with a potent energy…
With grooves so deep you’ll be stuck in them for weeks, horns that inject heavy doses of soul, and richly layered guitars and keys, we create a sonic landscape that ringleader and frontman Dave McCarthy uses to preach the twisted gospel of Salutation Dub Collective.
Transcending genre, we swing from soul to psyched elia, disco to dub, all the while retaining a sound that is unmistakably rooted in a desire to keep our music raw and our crowd baying for more.
Being regular favourites at Manchester’s hotbed of creativity Antwerp Mansion, we also play house parties, clubs, bars, and festivals, including 2014’s Kendal Calling & 2015’s Balter Festival.
Peace, love and salutations x
“Formidable, whiskey-laced, bluesy vocals Tina Turner would be proud of and tight reggae-jazz-funk arrangements from the instrumentalists in the outfit.” – M20 Collective
