About Newtown Rocksteady

They can also be described as a Jamaican Rocksteady / Soul / Funk / Dub Big Band and feature members of Hikoikoi, IRoots, Sam Manzanza Afrobeat band, The Good Words, The Nudge, Jintero MC live band, Fly my Pretties, Roy G and the Bivinators, Safari, Zirigidum, Fraser Ross & the Felt Tips, and The Resole Project.

Representing one of the foundation flavours of jamaican music, Newtown Rocksteady are a strong force in Wellington's live music scene. Among the many reggae bands here in Aotearoa, their music stands apart and reaches back to a sound further and deeper than most bands have explored here before. Already one EP deep of original tunes, and with sell-out crowds always calling for more, Newtown Rocksteady are amongst the hardest working and most in-demand live acts in the capital. With a repertoire focused around some of the pioneering legends of Jamaican Ska, Rocksteady and Reggae, the 12 piece band are not to be missed when they come by a town near you. Expect infectious grooves, impeccable musicianship, and good vibes.
