Details

King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys are more than just the world’s greatest swing band, they are an institution! The band have been on the road for two decades playing every European country as well as the USA and Russia and recording ten CDs. Dazzling musicianship, riveting stage performances, more than 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies) and 75 radio broadcasts have established them as the Kings of Swing. Paul Jones on BBC Radio 2 called them “the hardest act to follow since the parting of The Red Sea”, Atomic Magazine from New York wrote “To those who say that swing is a musical form best left to Americans, prepare to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet-proof!”. The Guardian said “Behind the fun and rollicking good times lies an outfit skilled enough for the horns to come on with the bite and precision of the Basie Band”. Now Dig This magazine wrote “This is their best, most inventive album to date” and the Sunday Mercury said “A joyous jamboree of Jazz. King Pleasure? King Wonderful!”
