In the 1960’s Mr. Newton Dunbar came to the UK from Jamaica and founded the first
Reggae-oriented music venue’s called ‘The Four Aces Club’, which for some 33 years was
home to the most influential black music and musicians to date (Desmond Decker, Jimmy
Cliff, Count Shelly, Ann Peebles, Percy Sledge, Ben E King Billy Ocean, Bob Marley, and many
others) Despite its success it came under fire from the local Police and was forced to close its
doors in the late 90’s due to a compulsory re- possession ordered by the local Authorities to
make way for the regeneration in Hackney for the fourth coming Olympics in 2012.
