Welcome To The Official Website Of The Award Winning KING KING

Welcome To The Official Website Of The Award Winning KING KING | The Blues | Scoop.it
Four years. That’s all King King took to burst out of the blocks, shuffle the blues-rock hierarchy and establish themselves as the band to beat.At this juncture, with two classic albums banked and awards raining down, you might imagine that Alan Nimmo (vocals/guitar), Lindsay Coulson (bass),Wayne Proctor (drums) and Bob Fridzema (keys) would sit back, catch their breath and allow themselves a group backslap around the crater left by their impact. Not a chance. This year finds King King hitting a swagger that suggests their reign is just getting started. Get onboard or step aside.
Vivaldi's insight:

This band is superb - I saw them last night for the first time and was blown away!

The father of British Blues - at the age of 80 he is still more than at the top of his game and his current band is just incredible.  Don't miss them if you get the change to see them!!!

The Blues Encyclopedia | The Blues | Scoop.it
The Blues Encyclopedia is the first full-length authoritative Encyclopedia on the Blues as a musical form. While other books have collected biographies of blues performers, none have taken a scholarly approach. A to Z in format, this Encyclopedia covers not only the performers, but also musical styles, regions, record labels and cultural aspects of the blues, including race and gender issues. Special attention is paid to discographies and bibliographies.
