King King – Saturday 29th July 2017
Having scored three radio hit singles on Planet Rock with the songs “Crazy” and “Hurricane”, and most recently, “Rush Hour”, King King received a nomination for Best New Band at the 2015 Classic Rock Awards. King King followed up with a UK arena tour supporting Thunder that was highlighted at a packed concert at London’s Wembley Arena, and as a result, won them over a raft of new rock fans.
King King recently won five awards at the 2016 British Blues Awards including Best Album (“Reaching For The Light”), Best Vocalist (Alan Nimmo), Best Bass Player (Lindsay Coulson), Best Song (“Rush Hour”) and Best Songwriter.
In 2015, “Reaching For The Light”, was voted #1 album by Blues Rock Review. In 2014, King King won a total of five British Blues Awards, including Best Album and Best Band. The nods came from BBC Radio 2 presenter Paul Jones to Classic Rock’s The Blues Magazine. Their support slot on John Mayall’s 2014 UK tour propelled the band to another level.
In 2013, King King’s second album “Standing in the Shadows”, firmly established them as the leading exponents of the British Blues scene. They still retain that accolade today.
The band features Alan Nimmo (vocals, guitar), Lindsay Coulson (bass), Wayne Proctor (drums) and Bob Fridzema (keyboards). Today, King King are the UK’s hottest Rock Blues band. They continue to push the envelope.
In October 2016, the band released their first live album, simply titled ‘Live’, to great critical acclaim.
“In footballing terms, King King are the musical equivalent of Real Madrid or Barcelona – supremely talented individuals who come together to produce a compelling performance.”
