The NYC Ska Orchestra is a brand-new 18-piece big band with a bold new sound, playing strikingly original compositions and arrangements of popular songs across many genres. The members, a who’s-who of top New York players, have been selected to best express the orchestra’s lush musical stylings of jazz, blues, ska, rock steady, and reggae. Led by Kevin Batchelor and Andrae Murchison, with musical direction by Sharp Radway and Anant Pradhan, the NYC Ska Orchestra brings tremendous collective talent to uphold the finest traditions of music and culture. See you on the dance floor!
Royal Khaoz stands as a unit whose sole purpose is to bring an energetic vibe through music. The unit as a band, has evolved over the years they have been together, and now believe they are what, and whom they started out to be. With all members native to Jamaica, Royal Khaoz presents their music in the form of fusion – hence, Reggae Fusion. With frontman Bama as the lead vocalist, solid drum and bass and a steady rhythm section, the band possesses the ability to represent reggae in its truest form, while tastefully apply their own twist to its traditional and conventional forms.
Formed since 2010 out of New York City, Royal Khaoz have had the opportunity of sharing the stage with renown legends of the trade gaining the respect of ones they grew up emulating with musical reverence. They also have played well-known stages along the East and West coast; and have been featured on the Bowery scene. Royal Khaoz has been a part of great showcases throughout New York City and the greater Hudson Valley region, heading local bills and working with renown promoters. Their debut album. “Life: The Journey”, was released in 2012 and they anticipate more music to be released later this year.
