Rough, Tough and always Rocking, the legendary King Pleasure & 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.
Some time in the early 1980s a group of school pals sat in a coffee bar in Walsall, planning the rhythm and blues band they were going to form. Normally a band is formed by, for instance, a guitarist meeting a piano-player, then they would recruit a bass player and so on. But not in this case. Rather on the lines of the Austin High School gang some sixty years previously and several thousand miles west, they allocated each other their instruments, went out to buy them and then set about learning to play them. Today the band they formed is one of the most popular jazz and swing bands in The World.
If that sounds a bit like a fairytale, then it is difficult not to with KING PLEASURE & THE BISCUIT BOYS, a band that has always defied belief and blurred the fine line between fact and fiction.
King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys are a difficult band to sum up, but Dave Clarke did a pretty fair job in Now Dig This: “Superb, a stunning range of instrumental ability ... classy stuff in the style of Louis Jordan and Eddie Cleanhead Vinson, with nowt taken out! A band I’d recommend ANYBODY to go and see.”
In our opinion, this band must be seen to be believed. At the top of the tree when it comes to corporate entertainment, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys are guaranteed to give your event the swinginest, get downiest, wow factor!
