King Pleasure and the Biscuit boys
Venue: Lichfield Guildhall
Saturday 02 December 2017: 8.00pm
Update – This concert is now sold out.
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.
This year the high-octane jump and jive band have, as always, been spreading their message throughout Europe promoting their 11th Big Bear CD Live at Last!
“Superb, a stunning range of instrumental ability…classy stuff in the style of Louis Jordan and Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, with nowt taken out.”

“The hardest act to follow since the parting of The Red Sea.” PAUL JONES, BBC RADIO 2
“A joyous jamboree of Jazz. King Pleasure? King Wonderful!” SUNDAY MERCURY
“To those who say that swing is a musical form best left to Americans, prepare to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet-proof!”
ATOMIC MAGAZINE, NEW YORK, USA
“Behind the fun and rollicking good times lies an outfit skilled enough for the horns to come on with the bite and precision of the Basie Band.”
