Tippa Irie and band performing at the Hideaway Jazz club

One of the UK’s finest and best loved reggae vocalists makes his Hideaway debut with his full live band.

Tippa Irie first came to prominence in the early eighties as an MC on the South London reggae sound system, Saxon Studio International.

He achieved his first national exposure on night time BBC Radio 1 in the mid-1980s, with the singles ‘It’s Good To Have The Feeling You’re The Best’ and ‘Complain Neighbour’ (on Greensleeves Records), before achieving a UK Top 40 hit in 1986 with ‘Hello Darling’.
