Lewis and the Sound of the Suburbs

Twenty years of singing/trumpeting/DJ’ing and promoting the tunes of an era…

After drastically changing career in one fell swoop due to a motorcycle accident in 1998. Lewis had never heard or saw anybody doing/playing the Ska, Reggae and Punk around the many many pubs in the day so he did what he did and will never stop pumping the sounds...


#SOULONTHESEA 12 years of providing Northern Soul & Motown! We started in June 2007 with 2 rooms Northern Soul & Motown vs Ska & Reggae. Unfortunately we lost the second room to redevelopment within the venue. We have many many more events in photos on our fb/soulonthesea page!


#OiMOUTH.UK ‘Just an idea’ because Poole Port is 5 miles away and it’s about time for a south coast invasion from our #EuropeanbrothersinOi after Brexit so it could take some time!
