King Pleasure set to get the New Year off to a rocking start at Artrix

Correspondent 30th Dec, 2019

KING Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys are to play their first gig of the 2020s at Artrix in Bromsgrove on Friday, January 3 at 8pm.

In what’s now become an annual tradition, the band will provide the perfect antidote to those post-Christmas, back to work blues with their trademark brand of straight down the line, no gimmicks, jump jive and swing.

In their three decades, the band have clocked up over 6500 performances in 21 countries, played on 36 radio shows and made 73 television appearances, including several on Blue Peter, The Teletubbies, as well as the Paradise Club series [where they were the house band], Challenge Anneka, The Gadget Show and on a prime time National Lottery advertisement – not to mention accompanying John Barrowman in a rendition of I Get A Kick Out Of You on Live And Kicking.

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 Festival, where they have headlined for an unprecedented 15 years.

The band has also performed alongside B.B. King, Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, Ray Charles, and toured with the actual Blues Brothers Band – the one from the movie.

Tickets are £18, with discounts available for concessions, available to purchase from www.artrix.co.uk or by calling Box Office on 01527 577330.
