Local Listen: The New Riddim

When you listen to the latest soulful reggae from The New Riddim you could easily believe it was created in Jamaica in the 1970s. Yet the Kansas City band’s “Second Sight” was, in fact, recorded locally.

This week’s edition of Local Listen features their song “Shoot the Piano Player.”

You catch them Friday, March 20, at Davey's Uptown Ramblers Club on Main and 34th in Kansas City, Mo. Doors open at 9. 

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. My email is steve@kcur.org.
