Captain Accident & The Disasters

Captain Accident & The Disasters


Captain Accident is a reggae/ska/soul artist who creates a unique blend of rock-driven soulful
roots reggae, ska, dub and rocksteady at his home studio in Cardiff. This sound is then brought to
life on stage with the help of a collective of the finest musicians for an energetic live show
guaranteed to get people up dancing. With soulful vocals, soaring twin guitars and a truly
infectious groove, there’s no standing still when Captain Accident and his clumsy companions hit
the stage.

Captain Accident currently has 4 self-produced albums under his belt: “Pick up the Microphone”
(2010), “Slippin Up” (2013), “Wake & Break” (2016) & the critically acclaimed “Bad Press” (2021)
which has received great reviews and praise, including that from the legendary David Rodigan on
his BBC Radio 1xtra Reggae Show.

Through intensive touring of the UK and Europe, an abundance of video content, festival
appearances and high-profile radio airplay, more and more people are becoming aware of the
Captain’s unique sound. With an ever-growing fanbase and a live show gaining so much
momentum in terms of sound and energy, Captain Accident and The Disasters are becoming
harder and harder to ignore on the UK reggae/ska circuit and further afield.

Captain Accident and The Disasters were hand-picked to join reggae heroes Toots & the Maytals
for a run of dates on their 2016 UK tour. After impressing the reggae legends, their fans and their
agency, the band were then invited back out as full-tour support in 2017 and 2018, taking them to
some of the UK’s most prestigious venues including London Barbican Theatre, Brighton Dome,
Manchester Academy, Nottingham Rock City and more. During Toots’ 2017 “Bands in the Sands”
appearance, the Captain was asked to join the band onstage to perform Monkey Man on guitar!
The band were then asked to go on a full European tour with Toots & the Maytals in 2020 but this
was postponed due to covid 19 and subsequently cancelled following the death of Toots Hibbert.
As well as Toots & the Maytals, CA & the D have shared a stage with many of the biggest names in
reggae & ska including: Suggs (who recently jumped on stage to sing with the band!),

Alborosie, Less Than Jake, Aswad, The Skints, The Skatalites, Bad Manners, The Toasters, Neville
Staple (The Specials), Fishbone, David Rodigan and countless others. They have become a staple
part of the UK festival circuit, appearing at Glastonbury, Wilderness, Bestival, Secret Garden Party,
Boomtown Fair and several others.
