THIS THURSDAY (3rd Feb.) at The Bullfrog Blues Club- KING KING!





KING KING featuring Alan Nimmo appear at our great new venue - BULLFROG BLUES CLUB at The N.B.E.C.S.A. Club (a.k.a The Dockyard Club), Onslow Road, Southsea, PO5 2NH

Thursday 3rd February 2011 - 8 p.m doors.
(The NBECSA Club is often refered to as 'The Dockyard Club' but don't get confused  - it's not in or near the actual dockyard! It's  a 150+ seater venue only about 700 yards from our old venue,  South Parade Pier.  However, unlike the Pier, The NBECSA Club has excellent clean facitiles, including a proper stage, and a well stocked bar  with a choice of real ales)


KING KING are back at The Bullfrog after their superb gig for us last year.

KING KING  are fronted by charismatic bluesman Alan Nimmo, and the band's exhilarating debut at Monaghan Blues Festival created such a stir that it prompted the organiser  to remark: “King King aren’t just playing the festival. Word is that King King ARE the festival”. 

With an almost instant reputation which spread like wildfire through the blues scene and a diary fit to burst,  the band also found time to get into the studio, the result being their debut EP ‘Broken Heal’. Produced alongside the team behind the Arctic Monkeys, Kaiser Chiefs and the Editors, the EP instantly received a gleaming review from Blues Matters Magazine, including remarks on it’s “emotive lyrics” and “stirring guitar work”. 

The band had barely left the studio when they began to receive airplay on radio stations across the UK, Europe and the US. Listeners to Radio 2’s Paul Jones were treated to a taste when the DJ got his hands on the band’s stunning ‘Heart Without A Soul’ and introduced it to the masses. the summer saw King King playing Blues On The Farm near Chichester and  Maryport Blues Festival, where they played the main stage to rapturous effect. ne press review effused: “How do you top an evening of music dominated by the wonderful Jethro Tull? With King King, that’s how.”

 Alan Nimmo is  famed almost as much for his contagious energy as his dazzling guitar work. Widely known across the UK and Europe for his pivotal role with the award-winning Nimmo Brothers, Alan’s full-blooded style, technical brilliance and impassioned vocals combine to hit all the right buttons and reach spots that many others can only aspire to.

Lindsay Coulson on bass  has seen him take to the stage with such well regarded blues acts as Aynsley Lister and Philip Walker. He has also been a regular in the Nimmo Brother’s lineup, and this history with Alan has resulted in a dynamic musical chemistry which is evident in both songwriting and performance.

Bennett Holland is on keyboard. An excitable advocate of funky low-down blues, Bennett has worked with a plethora of names including Groove Armada and the critically adored Richard Hawley.
