New Cross Inn Presents : King Solomon, Kado and more.
King Solomon are a heavyweight Roots-Reggae band from southwest England. The 10 strong collective have been causing a stir in the live-music scene since 2013. To top off an action packed 2016, the band was chosen to be the backing band for the legendary founder of Aswad, Brinsley Forde for a number of UK shows. The band have gained momentum across the UK with an ever-growing fan-base who are intrigued by the diverse mix of Blues, Funk and World music sitting on top of Roots-Reggae bass-lines. Influenced by Roots-Reggae of the 70’s & 80’s yet original in style. King Solomon captures the essence of a genre whilst breaking new ground. Staring drum & bass lines pin down a blend of jazz and soul melodies as vocals bring about stark reminders of conflict.
“The King Solomon Band bring their own vibe to the world of reggae music and their vibes truly hit the spot every time. This is portrayed on their album Ceasefire which is certainly is my album of the year 2016“ – Andy V – The Random Reggae Show – Swindon 105.5 (fm)
