New Kingston is a young vocalist/instrumentalist group, that consists of three brothers. Tahir a.k.a. SLIM, the youngest member on keyboards/vocals. Courtney on drums/vocals and Stephen a.k.a SUKI, the oldest on guitar/vocals. This group fuses their reggae sound with modern [op, jazz and R&B music, to create their sound, which they term, "Reggae Crossover." New Kingston has been in the industry for some time now and some might call them, "young veterans"! The group is led by its founder/manager and father Courtney LJ Panton. New Kingston started off working with many artists such as, Collie Buddz, Mr.Vegas, Morgan Heritage, Sister Carol, Shabba Ranks, and many more. But, while working with all of these artists, manager Courtney LJ Panton had another vision. He had an ulterior motive for New Kingston, which was for them to rise to the top as a solo act and stand alone, capturing the love of the people. This helped to create their sound, dubbed, "Reggae Crossover". A blend of sounds, to everyone's liking, while still sticking to their heritage. Reggae! Now this group is sharing the stage with many artists around the world from Europe, to the Americas and beyond. New Kingston is currently set to release their second album, "In The Streets". The album features two of their singles that are gaining radio recognition globally. "In The Streets", the title track of the album and "Pon Di Wall", which is on the Ting-ah-Ling riddim revamped and remade by New Kingston!
Black Bottom Lighters
Three guitarists, two vocalists, a percussionist, and a turntablist form one of the most dynamic sounding groups in the Arizona desert. Built on an acoustic foundation, the BBL's sound is as difficult to describe as it is to dislike. From mellow unplugged personal performances to wild stage acts as well as a crowd thats typically on the cusp of out of control, you are sure to have a memory or two when you leave one of their shows.
Born on an Island of the Philippines who moved to Chicago at the age of 9. A producer, audio engineer and a traveling reggae artist on the rise!I've had the pleasure sharing the stage with R.A. The Rugged Man in 2008, Jedi Mind Tricks in 2010, Josh Heinrichs & SkillinJah at Springfield Hempfest Sep 1, 2011 and back again Josh Heinrichs, SkillinJah and Cas Haley Sep 1-3, 2012.
