In the 1970s they started to produce their own recordings.
The band were signed to Richard Branson's Virgin label in the 1970s. After leaving the label in the 1980s, Norman moved to the UK and set up his own Twinkle label."
Info provided by the Event Organiser
Direct from Jamaica with their ten-piece band, The Twinkle Brothers are true legends of Reggae. Led by Norman Grant, they began their career in the early ’60s as a trio, in a slick style similar to that of the Melodians and the Mighty Diamonds. In the early ’70s, the group hooked up with the influential producer and arranger Bunny Lee, a union that produced a number of massive reggae hits including “We Can Do It Too” and “Miss Laba Laba.” Today, the Twinkle Brothers continue to be true ambassadors of digital deep roots, taking their sound to countries with very different musical styles.
