Influences include Phyllis Dillon, Don Drummond, Toots & The Maytals, Alton Ellis and John Holt.
The Recks (from Sark Island, English Channel) - http://www.therecks.co.uk/
Who are The Recks (and why should you care)? We are a gypsy, jazz, folk, funk, genre-bending, mind-melting, slap-dashing, five-piece from the isle of Sark in the Channel Islands.
Formed in 2012 The Recks quickly gained positive reviews and became known as the “kings of schizophrenic folk” (although they’re not quite sure what that means, but they're almost certain it’s a compliment). Having had an explosive 2018, the band has packed out festivals and venues, playing the BBC Introducing stage at Latitude festival (UK), Sunshine (Jersey) and many more in between.
Released their long-awaited album, The Beast From The Sea in March 2018 they have been riding a wave of success and leaving a horde of happy fans bobbing in their wake. 2019 is now flooding your ears with The Recks infectious sound as they venture to numerous festivals and venues throughout the UK and Europe.

“Watching the Recks is like dating a hot psychopath”
The Recks hail from the tiny British isle of Sark. The genre-bending, mind-melting, slap-dashing, five-piece heads to the mainland for a series of shows in May 2019.
From Plymouth to Bristol, Hertford, Exeter, amongst others, this band of misfits will leave you begging for more.
“Dare to be different with the kings of schizophrenic folk”
One thing for sure is that you have to stay on your toes as the band takes you through a multi-genre frenzy; gypsy swing, rock, funk, stoner, reggae and psychedelic madness.
Watch them, follow them, discover them, just don’t touch them.
