January 21, 2016

A sell out audience voted for the Jab Jab documentary as their favourite film from the Exeter Phoenix Two Short Nights Film Festival 2015 where it was awarded the Audience Award. Read more about the film here:

‘JAB JAB the biggest band you’ve never heard of’   Dir. Amanda Whittington 

This is the story of Jab Jab, one of Britain’s most successful unsigned bands of the 1970s. With their unique fusion of rock, reggae, calypso and funk music, Jab Jab were breaking boundaries. In the pre-digital era, fans were unable to access Jab Jab’s music outside their live performances. Until now…

Inspired by the discovery of reel-to-reel recordings, filmmaker Amanda Whittington helps bring the band back together and documents their story and music. Could they be the biggest band you’ve never heard of?

The film will be screened at film festivals across the UK in 2016 and available on the web in 2017.
