Unknown Era were formed in 2014 by a ragtag group of musicians, socialites and party heads, all well known in
the local Nottingham scene.
After playing a debut show at The Maze in their native Nottingham on New Year’s Eve 2014, the band was
expanded into the current 9 piece with 4 vocalists, 2 guitarists, bass, drums, trumpet and trombone. They
quickly built a strong reputation as one of Nottingham’s most popular bands with their high energy mix of
Soul, Ska, Reggae, Gypsy, Punk, Rock, Funk and Dub.
New material has had an even more socially conscious and political edge bringing messages of equality and
unity, which has seen the band play Nottingham Unite Festival and do acoustic sets at several protests as well
as make appearances on Radio Nottingham and several other Midland’s based radio shows.
