Kings of Spade
Kings of Spade
Rock, Blues, Soul, Dance from Honolulu, HI

KINGS OF SPADE are a high-energy, shameless dancing, foot-stomping brand of Blues Rock’N’Roll. Fronting Kings of Spade is fluorescent-mohawked, KC, whose fiery vocals recall a hybrid of soul queens Janis Joplin and Aretha Franklin. With music conceived in their hometown in Honolulu, Hawaii, KOS jumped at the opportunity to record in Nashville, TN with 2018 Grammy-winning producer, Dave Cobb (Chris Stapleton, Rival Sons). This self titled album will be released later this summer and supported by a US tour in the fall. In 2017 KOS finished their 9th US mainland tour, played the iconic Willie K Blues Festival on Maui, and embarked on their very first European tour as openers for Prog-Rock legends KINGS X. The Kings are no strangers to big audiences. Their energetic live show beat out 50 other competing bands to win the opening slot for the Honolulu stop on Bon Jovi’s Circle Tour and has also landed them as the openers for other world-famous acts like Halestorm, The Struts, Deftones, Everclear, Pepper, and Mutemath.

New Record produced by Dave Cobb (Grammy award winning producer and also Producer of the Year):
Chris Simmons Band
Chris Simmons Band
Rock N Roll, Southern Soul, and Electric Blues from North Alabama

You want real American music.
American Rock n Roll, slow-smoked with Blues
and Soul, was born and nurtured in the South.
Chris Simmons and his band grew up and out of that heritage in North Alabama.

Songs and music, all from the heart...
Serviced with Dynamic Drivin' drums(Mikey D Williams),
Booming Velvet bass (Brad Baker),
Sweet Stingin' guitar pickin' and slidin' ...and Soul Singin' harmonies.
No new fangled electronic tricks here.

"You don't just hear it, it comes in through your soul."
There's power in the blood from this trio of homegrown southern gentlemen.
No certain style or rules..
you just know it's ROCK N ROLL and it's good music that means something
...and you know it because you can feel it.

The Chris Simmons Band is real music for real folks. So if you ain't real...
This ain't for you... Just stand back and try to move away slowly.
