King Pleasure and the Biscuit Boys Swing back to The Met

The Met welcomes back King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys promoting their new album Live at Last, on Friday 25 March at 8pm.

Cited as one of singer Paloma Faith\’s favourite bands, the six-piece delivers a shot of pure and authentic jazz and blues from a bygone era. Ronald Atkins from The Guardian commented, \”Behind the fun and the rollicking good times lies an outfit skilled enough to get the horns to come on with the bite and precision of the Basie Band.\”

The main man, King Pleasure himself is unique. He sings, he romps, he roars, he relentlessly drives the band forward. Bands are rarely blessed with such a huge personality, and the bonus comes with his sensational tenor sax playing.

The current line-up, unchanged now for three years is The King himself on vocals and baritone sax, Bullmoose K. Shirley on guitar, Boysy Battrum on alto and tenor saxes, Mighty Matt Foundling tickling the ivories, double bassist Shark Van Schtoop and Gary \’The Enforcer\’ Barber on drums

\”The hardest act to follow since the parting of the Red Sea.\” BBC Radio 2
