Duncan DisordelyLow Res

Duncan Disorderly & The Scallywags began their musical journey in 2010. With exceptional influences from Latin and Reggae to Gypsy and Swing/Jazz; charismatic Duncan and his Scallywags never fail to entertain. It isn’t all sweet jazz and chilled Reggae ‘smokers’, The Scallywags do love diversity with a few ‘banging’ party tunes not going amiss in a late night show.
Having already toured Amsterdam, Italy and Spain and played shows in the UK at Glastonbury, Nozstock, Secret Garden Party and Sunrise, The Scallywags have notably headlined festivals such as Buddhafields, The Green Gathering, Small World, St Boi Alternativa Festival, Trontano Open Air Festival and Wild Heart. It seems the only way is up for The Green Gathering’s ‘Best Band On Site 2012’ winners!
