The group have been a big festival, pub and carnival favourite since their inception, bringing a reggae and ska twist to popular covers as well as their own material.

The livestream gig begins at 8pm on Friday, hosted at The Palladium Club in Bideford, with the band joined by special guest entertainer Rob Pudner from Entertainingly Different, who has been performing a host of virtual shows during lockdown.

Zamba was formed after a trip to Antigua which inspired a group of friends to put together a lively upbeat carnival and reggae band.

Performing on the night will be lead singer Della, James Millman on guitar and vocals, Ed Newton on bass, Frank Rawle on drums and Billy Hammett on percussion.
