Headliners for Calling Out on Saturday are the Punk-Rock, Hip-Hop, Jump-Up Ska Soundclash from Manchester that is Sonic Boom Six.

Described by Kerrang! as a hefty shot of ska-punk, hip-hop, reggae and jungle, not to mention big, sinuous rock dynamics and hooks SB6 play firmly for the dance-floor while retaining enough power and aggression to be an active fixture of the UK's punk scene.

 

Looking as at home on a festival stage as they are playing at a warehouse party, the band are retaining their grassroots ideation and positive, unifying message as their music steadily permeates a wider international audience.

 

"Sharp of mind and socially-conscious, there's nothing about Sonic Boom Six that doesn't come from the heart. Their shiny punk reggae hip-hop sound addresses real issues with a more productive vibe than these riot-strewn streets have seen recently, and tonight, they're on fire."

Kerrang!Live Review Jan 2011.

 

"They’re one of the most truly stimulating live bands ever to whip an apathetic crowd into devotion, and their grassroots army of support stands testament to that. What’s more,
their billing is a victory and inspiration for everyone who writes songs with their mates and dreams of something better"
