Details

A special gig from local heroes in recognition of another local hero - the late and great JOHN BALL...

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

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.

The eight piece have rarely taken it easy when it comes to travelling the world bringing their high energy show and unique brand of reggae, ska, and rocksteady to venues and festivals across the UK, Germany, France, Holland, Croatia, Czech Republic, Austria and Switzerland.

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.
