King Pleasure levert pure authentieke jump & jive, swing jazz
en rhythm & blues. De band zou zo uit een zwart-wit film uit
de veertiger jaren gestapt kunnen zijn.
Live een van ’s werelds beste swing en jive bands, toert al
30 jaar over de hele wereld en is inmiddels een instituut.
Trouw aan Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner e.v.a., maar vooral ook
aan hun eigen stijl, humor en energie.
BRING BACK THE GOOD TIMES WITH JUMP, JIVE,
SWING AND A SHOT OF GOOD OLD-FASHIONED
KANSAS CITY RHYTHM & BLUES
Rough, tough and always rocking, the legendary King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys’
zany stage show sometimes belies the fact that here is the finest, most authentic
rhythm & blues band ever to come from outside the USA. As anyone who has
followed their astonishing career knows, the band carries a guarantee of great
swinging music and high entertainment value.
2017 will be the year that King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys celebrate a remarkable
30 years on the road. In that time they have opened shows for B.B. King,
Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, Ray Charles, and toured with the real
Blues Brothers Band - the one from the movie.
Since their debut at the Birmingham Jazz & Blues Festival in 1987, the band have
delivered nearly 6500 performances in 21 countries, played on 36 radio shows and
made 73 television appearances, including several on Blue Peter, The Teletubbies,
as well as the Paradise Club series where they were the house band.
They also featured on Challenge Anneka and The Gadget Show.
"The hardest act to follow since the parting of the Red Sea"
Paul Jones, BBC Radio 2
"For those that say swing is a musical form best left to the Americans,
prepare to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet-proof"
Atomic Magazine, New York
"Behind the fun and rollicking good times lies an outfit skilled enough for
the horns to come on with the bit e and precision of the Basie band"
"They're the genuine article, in full working order, dedicated to shaking
you up and swinging you into the middle of next week"
