Each band member has many years of experience at playing live so you can expect a professional show with up to 2 hours of live music which still maintains a raw, energetic feeling. The band has the flexibility of male and female vocals.

The band's show uses a 3000 watt full range HK PA system at all performances with an Allen & Heath Qu-16 Digital Desk, plus a complete lighting show with the latest ADJ 8 TPAR System COB LED Stage Lighting. For smaller venues we also have a HK Audio Lucas Performer.

The band uses only the very best instruments, amplifiers and microphones, including Fender, Gibson guitars, Yamaha trb 4p bass Guitar, Fender, Mark Bass and Trace Elliot amps, Beyer Microphones, Craviotto drum kit and a Kawai MP7 piano. The Kings will play music via a laptop or media device of your choice between sets which is included in the price! Or provide a separate DJ for an extra fee.
