Headlining Sullivan Hall’s media premiere (located at 214 Sullivan Street between Bleecker Street and 3rd Avenue), NEW KINGSTON plans to pull out all the stops. Filled with explosive raw talent and unique creative expression, NEW KINGSTON is poised to continue a musical legacy that spans more than four decades. Featuring live performances from the Caribbean’s finest artists, the opening line-up includes lovely ladies, Keisha Martin (Gangsta Shorty, Believe), Marcia Davis (Young Man, Too Much War), Sweet Tea (Hit de Road, Thank You Father), Lady Alexis (Nah Nah, Broken Promises), Alibra (Love Found Me, Clearly), Nicole Williams and Afiya Wilson (Love Anthem).

Members of NEW KINGSTON are Tahir (Keyboards/Vocals), Courtney (Drums/Vocals), and Steve (Guitar/Vocals). In a class all by themselves, NEW KINGSTON carved their niche early by perfecting their ability to perform Roots, Rock, Reggae, Soca, Pop, Jazz, and R&B ultimately raising the bar for crossover fusion within the Reggae music industry. In 2005, New Kingston released their first debut album entitled Mankind featuring hit single This Love Is; and collaborations with the legendary Frankie Paul, Ritchie Stephens, Bushman and KC Jockey (available at CD Baby and I-tunes).

Their new album, In the Streets, include chart topping hit singles Pon’ di Wall, In the Streets and Empress Love. Equally successful are their latest videos entitled In the Streets and Empress Love, both of which have received heavy rotation on a variety of channels throughout the world.
