In the 1960's Mr Newton "ACE" Dunbar arrived in UK from Jamaica and founded one of the first Reggae-oriented music venue’s called ‘The Four Aces Club’ in the old Dalston Theatre building in 1966, which for some 33 years was home to the most influential black music and musicians to date
It showcased new music genre’s like Blue Beat, Ska, Rocksteady, Reggae, Jazz and Soul performed at the time by artists like Alton Ellis, Desmond Decker, Jimmy Cliff, Count Shelly, Ann Peebles, Percy Sledge, Ben E King Billy Ocean, Cimarons, Aswad, Black Slate, Matumbi and many others. This gave the club authenticity to attract artists like The Clash, Chrissie Hynde, The Slits, Bob Marley, Sex Pistols, Marc Bolan and Bob Dylan who were heavily influenced by the infectious pulsating rhythms!
