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 good time music and high entertainment value. Great to have them back at the Guildhall, where they fit like a glove!
They’re the genuine article, in full working order, dedicated to shaking you up and swinging you into the middle of next week. Everywhere they go they hook more devotees. They’ve played all over Europe, up as far as Russia. Even more impressively, they’ve stormed across the US, much to the surprise of the natives. As one New York magazine put it: ‘Those who say that swing is a musical form best left to Americans, prepare to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet proof!’.
