About Dub Princess & Hotsteppas

Dub Princess & Hotsteppas: a highly professional band, We've toured far and wide, including Glasto, & tours with The Wailers and many others
Reggae band
Public liability insurance of £10 million

Hotsteppas are an experienced Reggae/ ska band who always deliver an exciting live show. We have a great list of classic hand-picked covers to choose from to suit you desires. Hotsteppas is inspired by 70s and 80s Jamaican reggae, sprinkled on the fertile ground of the Bristol scene to grow into something unique and at once, melodic roots reggae blended with contemporary dub sensibilities and spiced up with some Funk and Latin heat. That sound has blossomed through cross-pollination in the band’s work with vocalists such as Blackout JA, CW Jones, Donovan Kingjay, Shumba Youth, and Prince Jamo. We have supported the likes of The Wailers, Mungo’s Hifi, Katchafire, Gentleman's Dub Club, Black Roots, Macka B, Chainska Brassika and The Hempolics. Hotsteppas have already built a keen fan-base and have performed at many UK music festivals, including Boomtown, Secret Garden Party, and One Love. We have performed as a function band for weddings and corporate events for many years.
