Prince’s former backing band, the New Power Generation, perform an epic musical celebration of the legendary artist’s music that continues to wow both critics and fans alike.

Just as their former boss was known to be the consummate live performer, the band continues to receive acclaim for their tight arrangements, stellar sound and the electrifying pace of their shows.

The NPG’s “Celebrating Prince” shows have been described as a non-stop musical kaleidoscope that includes some of the most iconic chart-topping hits from all eras of Prince’s illustrious four-decade career.  The charismatic lead singer, MacKenzie, has been called a “discovery of note” and has won over audiences with his incredible voice and interpretation of the music without veering into impersonating.  MacKenzie is joined on lead vocals by rapper Tony M, who Prince featured on early Prince & the New Power Generation releases.  The show focuses on Prince’s entire catalogue with NPG hits like ‘Diamonds and Pearls,’ ‘Gett Off’, ‘Cream’ ‘7,’ and ‘Sexy MF’ intermingled with hits like ‘1999,’ ‘Let’s Go Crazy’, ‘Pop Life’, ‘Sign O’ The Times’, ‘Purple Rain’, ‘U Got The Look’ and ‘Kiss’.

Prince fans dance, laugh, cry and sing along to the soulful and electrifying shows and walk away saying it is one of the best shows they ever saw!

This is not a tribute band; they have a far higher pedigree.  They wrote with, supported, toured with and loved the legend that is Prince. To see them play their celebration of their friend’s music is more of a spiritual experience.  It is a very unique musical experience.  I can't recommend it highly enough." ~ Steve Holley, Essentially Pop
