2015: the band are set to release their new album ‘Next Stage’ in Spring.

The early years saw the band supporting the likes of The Skints, Streetlight Manifesto, Zebrahead, Neville Staples, and Sonic Boom Six to name a handful – racking up over 350 gigs in the process.

In 2012 Bigtopp won the Portsmouth Road To Blissfields event and The Music League, leading to slots at Blissfields Festival and a main stage slot at Lounge On The Farm supporting Emile Sandé, as well as taking priority slots at Alresford, Off the Tracks, Onionfest and more. To complete the year, Bigtopp also enjoyed receiving airplay from BBC Introducing and played alongside Mad Caddies in Bournemouth

The band’s previous album ‘Mischief’, released in 2013, and also recorded by James Bragg, remains a staple ska diet for the dedicated Topper. Their art has been received with open arms by promoters, musicians and music lovers alike. On the underground scene it led to performances at BoomTown Fair, One Love Festival and WTFest to name but a few.

Bigtopp’s 2014 started supporting the RX Bandits at the highly reputable Wedgewood Rooms to a sold out crowd. Following this, the group scored high profile festivals including; Bestival, Isle of Wight, V-DUB, Blissfields & No Man’s Land. Alongside this summer of festivities, Bigtopp hit the UK for 10 dates with IOW based reggae band The Ohmz, and visited Europe for their first time (shortly followed by their second) reaching France, Belgium and Luxembourg. While spending time travelling to and from festivals, the group recorded their second horn stomping album at Middle Farm studios.

The scene is buzzing but it’s been lacking something. It’s been craving that blend of upbeat energetic music and intelligent vocal melodies; it’s been wanting a 3 piece horn section and deep bass sound. Bigtopp are there to provide it. The band’s objective is very simple: get people dancing; get people smiling; get people thinking.
