The Broombusters deliver a unique fusion of blues and reggae. Rhythmic reggae basslines matched with gritty blues chords create an original sound while taking influences from Bob Dylan, Elmore James, Jimi Hendrix and Muddy Waters creates a combinination of reggae and good old-fashioned rock’n’roll. Leading the five-piece Broombusters is the charismatic Charlie ‘Wolfman’ Sylvester from the late 1970s disco soul band J.A.L.N. Band which, managed by Pete Waterman, toured Europe for over 25 years, had several chart successes and made many appearances on Top of the Pops.
