ARE King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys really "The Kings of Swing", as some fans claim?

Do they even like biscuits?

Find out by attending a gig at Worcester’s Huntingdon Hall this evening, Saturday November 25, from 7.30pm.

A spokesman is in no doubt, saying: "Dazzling musicianship, riveting stage performances, more than fifty TV appearances - including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies, and 75 radio broadcasts have established King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys as the undisputed ‘Kings of Swing’.

"And 2017 is the year that these Kings are celebrating a remarkable thirty years on the road. In that time they have opened shows for B. B. King, Cab Calloway and His Orchestra and Ray Charles, and toured with the Blues Brothers Band."

The spokesman added: "Over the years the individual members may have changed but the band stays the same. In the case of the Biscuit Boys, the King and Bullmoose have been there from the beginning. Changes have taken place, but not often. The latest recruit is dynamic pianist Mighty Matt Foundling, who took over from Crab-Claw Tromans shortly before the Hey Puerto Rico album – the band’s ninth – was recorded.

"Rough, tough and always rocking, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys have appeared at festivals, in concert and at clubs throughout the UK and Europe – and they still play the Birmingham Jazz & Blues Festival, where they have headlined for an unprecedented 14 years. They have managed to record 11 albums for Big Bear Records along the way, all of which have been distributed worldwide. They are considered to be the finest, most authentic rhythm & blues band ever to come from outside the USA.They’re the genuine article, in full working order."
