King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys


Thursday 15 November 7.45pm

Gulbenkian Theatre, Canterbury


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 and blues band ever to come from outside the USA.

They present a breathtaking mix of 1940s Kansas City jazz and blues in a truly exhilarating, swinging, non-stop live stage performance. Looking like they just stepped straight out of a 1940ís black and white B movie, this inimitable six-piece delivers a shot of pure and authentic jazz and blues from a bygone era, when swing was king.

The main man, King Pleasure, is unique. He sings, he romps, he roars, he relentlessly drives the band forward and clearly has such a ball as he does it. Bands are rarely blessed with such a huge personality, and the bonus comes with his sensational tenor sax playing.

Donít miss King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys live on stage at the Gulbenkian Theatre Ė it will be an unforgettable musical experience.
