Newtown Rocksteady is more than just a dance band that makes you move, it's a moment in life when you just have to be there!

A group of Wellington musos are combining their creative talents to create and recreate the rocksteady reggae sound. The eight-piece, Jamaican rocksteady/soul/funk big band featuring members of Hikoikoi, IRoots, Roy G and the Bivonators, Safari, Zirigidum, and The Resole Project, play stonkin' grooves to get people moving their bodies.

Their sounds and styles are inspired by the late '60s crazes of rocksteady and ska dance halls in Jamaica and England. And the result? An inspired sound, with an infectious combination of mellow rhythms and upbeat dance tunes to get the whole family grooving!

Joining them is the electric folk sensation Fraser Ross & the Felt Tips. Raised around a quarry on the Port Hills of Christchurch, now living in the utopic paradise of Wellington's Newtown. Fraser is colouring in our city with his new felt tips. Have a listen here:
