Ska reggae collective New Town Kings are an Essex based band of upstarts who emphatically blend old school Jamaican rhythms with a fresh dose of UK inspired ska.
Since the nine-pieces’ debut ‘Sound of the New Town’, the band’s demonstrated their expert ability to create party fuelled ska anthems – with offbeat guitars and swirling horns aplenty.
Hailing from New Town, Colchester – the New Town Kings’ modern twist on classic Jamaican music has seen them tour the country with the likes of The Skints, Gentlemen’s Dub Club and US reggae legends The Aggrolites to name a few.
The band’s rarely taken it easy it when it comes to travelling the world with their own brand of ska, having clocked up over 500 shows across 10 different countries since their formation. Their punk rock ethic and extensive touring schedule has seen them perform at the likes of Boomtown Fair, Secret Garden Party, The HMV Forum and a whole host more – and the New Town Kings tour bus shows no sign of slowing down with further plans in progress for 2015.
The includes a special live show here at The Borderline this September.
“Nice work from the New Town Kings…the best of Brit reggae” – David Rodigan MBE, BBC Radio 1Xtra
