Steve White and the Protest Family
Steve White and the Protest Family has been been together since 2009 and are best described as brash, witty, political folk/punk. You're as likely to find them playing to striking workers on a picket line as in a Camden pub.
They're regulars at the Stow Festival in Walthamstow every year, and for two years they've hosted a Love Orient Hate Racism event in conjunction with Leyton Orient Football Club and the Kick It Out campaign.
Steve himself is a dedicated boinero with a good collection of berets to choose from.
The picture of Steve toasting the much-missed Kirsty Macoll was taken before a gig at the Bread and Roses in Clapham, London which was raising much needed funds for striking teachers from Lambeth College.
"Steve White & The Protest Family remain the best band on the circuit, and are, without a doubt, the most personable, charming, comradely way of trojan horsing militant messages into unsuspecting audiences....." - Chris Fox
