4-Piece band. Very danceable original songs & covers.
From 'The What Where When Big Guide' - 'Festive Edition' 2010:
"It may not be the obvious place to go looking for it, but if you were on the search for Kent's most exciting band this Christmas, you could do a lot worse than a stop-off in the pirate-life and sea-shanty led town of Deal. For somewhere among the myriad music pubs or rehearsal rooms will be the pretty recently formed 4-piece that go by the name of 'The Alleviators'. Stunning audiences across the county from this Spring onwards, the band play a very laid-back yet lively mix of original reggae-inflected material, alongside some choice ska and reggae covers that are always good to get a crowd moving.
Not just your average band, they come laden with effects pedals and crazy looking machinery, all of which when used adds to the athentic crunch and delays of a proper bonafide reggae band...
So turn up the bass, close your eyes and drift with The Alleviators - Kent's newest soul reggae rebels."
