The HeadMasters’ first gig was at The Rocket in Acton, west London, in March 2018 where special guest artist Dave Barker, of The Upsetters and `Double Barrel' fame, appeared with the band to perform some of his hits. See photos of their debut gig in the gallery.
In 2016, Steve met Alex 'Dimples' Hinds: the founder and leader of the Marvels from Jamaica with hits such as, 'Rocksteady' and 'Heaven Must Have Sent You'. Dimples and Steve became firm friends and Steve wrote a song for Dimples’ daughter, Donna Hinds. Dimples used that as the title track for the last Marvels album, `Never Too Late'. Steve then wrote a song for Dimples,`One of a Kind', which was recorded with the HeadMasters in 2017. Sadly, Dimples passed away in March 2018, before the song was ready for release. Dimples was a ska and reggae DJ too, and his Sunday lunchtime show on London’s Radio RJR on 98.3 FM, where he was affectionately known as the ‘King Spinner’, will be greatly missed, as is the man himself.
