Rats In The Kitchen UB40 tribute act established in 1998 and was the first tribute to internationally acclaimed reggae stars UB40. They are known globally as ‘Number One Tribute To UB40’. Like UB40, this band also originates from Birmingham. As genuine fans they have strived in their 17 years to provide a professional and polished performance and service. Band members pride themselves on being a fully live band, including a powerful and authentic brass section. Typically two and a half hours of entertainment.
They perform a full repertoire to UB40 classics with addition of some popular Ska and Bob Marley hits giving variety to their show. Added advantage is that they have their own sound engineer and PA, thus giving them flexibility to perform in any arena, large or small, indoors or out. This has enabled Rats In The Kitchen to expand and they are currently undertaking links with P&O Carnival cruise liners (as a 6 piece band).
