This limited edition CD / DVD pack compromises the complete audio of Laid Blak Unplugged and a bonus DVD of their performance at St Georges, Bristol. Only 500 of these sets will ever be sold and highlights of the CDs include unreleased songs and acoustic versions of Laid Blak favourites.
At St George, Laid Blak performed their first ever acoustic set, complete with a string quartet at the world-class venue.
The eight-piece band brings together some of city’s finest musicians delivering a diverse live set of urban reggae with tinges of jazz, funk, soul, hip-hop and ska thrown in for good measure.

In Laid Blak’s journey so far they have supported big name acts such as Ed Sheeran (who also covered one of their songs, ‘Red’), Desmond Dekker, Nitin Sawhney, Julian Marley, John Legend and Luciano. They have lit up Glastonbury, Brisfest, Boom Town and Shambala and set people dancing at carnivals all over the UK, including St Pauls. Their increasing global appeal has prompted rave reviews and an award for ‘Best Northern Europe Reggae band.’
The band are signed to Reel Me Records, Bristol’s biggest independant label, whose support has seen Laid Blak elevate to new pastures of success, as they begin to get the recognition they deserve.
Laid Blak’s music tackles some powerful political and social issues around life in the city and band members are active supporters and fundraisers for Bristol-based charity, The Grand Appeal, raising money performing charity sets and parachuting from the Bristol skies – a band with a heart and a Bristol soul.
The 19th September performance included a one-off acoustic set, complete with a string quartet, followed by an intimate Q&A session and a full band set.
