What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 20 - 240 minutes
Expect lots of Energy in a Rock_Show format.Flashy guitar solos,lightning fast burning Sax solos,scorching vocals,drum sticks flying in the air and twirled and lots of interaction between members.Smooth transition from song to song and plenty of surprizes.Always have a large audience filled with friends and fans.WE also use top of the line and custom made equipment.King plays a 25 string Triple - neck guitar and several custom double-necks.There are few words to describe the bands impact on the audience.One word does come to mind "AWESOME" !!!!!
