6/09/2016 – Yellow Arch presents Smiling Ivy, Steel City Rhythm & more


Yellow Arch have gathered a bunch of Sheffield’s finest Ska / Reggae acts to bring you a night of top vibes! Being a city which rarely celebrates itself, we thought it’s about time we made more of a song and dance about the unique music scene of Sheffield. On the bill we’re proud to present…

Smiling Ivy

Smiling Ivy have been slammin’ their Explosive Dub, Hip Hop and Ska Punk vibes across the UK and beyond for many a year. Jammin’ funk ska beats like man machines – on the brink of disaster, but never quite tipping the edge. Smiling Ivy is an untamed animal, enjoying the ride.

Steel City Rhythm

Formed in late summer 2013, Steel City Rhythm are a Sheffield based 8 piece, playing a unique blend of up-tempo, politically conscious reggae fusion music. Mixing blazing brass lines and soaring vocals over hard Hip-Hop beats, heavy Dub breaks and rhythmic Funk grooves, The Steel City Rhythm sound is infectious and designed to get people on their feet and moving.


Number 1 Dub, Roots and Culture outta Sheffield Steel City! Running roots and reality for 16 years… Sheffield has a lot to thank Dubcentral for – bringing some of the best Reggae / Roots / Dub / UK Steppas artists to our city and creating a community for cultural unity in our city.


Simmerdown is a young collective of like-minded music lovers / DJs, known to nice up the session at any opportunity. Packing cases full of vinyl, ranging from 60’s Jamaican Ska to modern digital Dub, we’re sure these selectors will get you movin’.

The night will kick off at 8pm, with Simmerdown and Dubcentral spinning dubs to get you warm and ready for the slammin’ bands later.
