The West Kensingtons
Formed in the heart of Philadelphia the band decided to pay homage to its neighborhood of origin by naming itself the West Kensingtons. The band was founded when veterans of the reggae, soul, and ska, scenes (Mephiskapheles, Inspecter 7, Peeping Toms, SGR, etc.) decided to join forces and look to the future in its ever evolving development of sound. Grounded in reggae and soul, these roots can be heard in every move made by its musical core, its rhythm section, Bass, Drums, Organ and Guitar.
The West Kensingtons created a structure in the tradition of the Revolutionaries, the Upsetters, and Roots Radics that allows it to supplement its core through its ever expanding “Soul Reggae Club”, made up of some of the most accomplished vocalists, horn players and instrumentalists around today (The Snails; Ruder Than You; The Bouncing Souls; Rk$tdy; Silver Dollar and more). You will hear these musical partnerships reflected in its live performances as well as through its nonstop recording schedule which to date has yielded several releases including, “Rally”, “Bringing It To You”, “Con Amore” and “Come Get You Some”.
