Audiences get the chance to see The Dualers, Britain’s much-loved ska and reggae band who started off busking in Romford, when they head to Southend next week.

The group will be at the Cliffs Pavilion, Station Road, on Friday, October 14.

The band have steadily built up a following of many thousands of dedicated fans across all ages.

In 2004 their first single, Kiss On The Lips, entered the UK charts at number 21, selling 14,000 copies and out-selling chart heavyweights Scissor Sisters and Girls Aloud in its first week. The video was the most requested on satellite channel StarzTV for six consecutive weeks, replacing Sean Kingston’s Beautiful Girl at Number One.

Their second, Truly Madly Deeply, was featured on the soundtrack of the film Fools Gold, starring Matthew McConaughey and Kate Hudson.

The third chart single in 2006, Don’t Go, was followed by release of their debut album, The Melting Pot.

They are in the studio recording their third album, due for release in summer 2012.

All tickets are £24.50 from the box office on 01702 351135.
