New Town Kings

The band formed in 2007, and they have been touring all over the UK, and are still touring presently. They are performing live in Derby at The Hairy Dog on the 25th May 2018.

Ska/reggae collective New Town Kings emphatically blend old school Jamaican rhythms with a fresh dose of UK inspired ska.

Their fresh approach has gained attention and received airplay from BBC 1Xtra’s reggae hotshot David Rodigan, and led to features on Fred Perry Subculture, WorldAReggae and Punktastic.

Hailing from New Town, Colchester, the band’s modern twist on classic Jamaican music has seen them tour the country and play with the likes of The Skints, The Slackers, Gentleman’s Dub Club, Lucky Chops and US reggae legends The Aggrolites to name a few.

Their DIY ethic and extensive touring schedule has seen them perform at Boomtown Fair, Secret Garden Party, The Electric Ballroom, Nottingham Rock City, The HMV Forum and a whole host more.

With an extensive touring schedule and a new album set for release in the summer, 2018 promises big things for the New Town Kings. If you would like to find out where this band will be playing, go check out their website, with their upcoming events https://www.newtownkings.co.uk/shows
