The band have been on the road for over two decades playing in every European country as well as the USA and Russia and recording ten CDs.
Through their dazzling musicianship and riveting stage performances the band have made over 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies). King Pleasure & the Biscuit Boys have also been heard on more than 75 radio broadcasts, establishing themselves as the Kings of Swing!
Paul Jones from BBC Radio 2 once described the band as “the hardest act to follow since the parting of the Red Sea”. Also receiving rave reviews from:
“For those that say swing is a musical form best left to the Americans, prepare to be proven wrong. This British combo is bullet-proof.” Atomic Magazine, New York
“Superb, a stunning range of instrumental ability….. Classy stuff in the style of Louis Jordan and Eddie ‘Cleanhead’ Vinson, with nowt taken out ! A band I recommend ANYBODY to go and see” Dave Clarke, Now Dig This Magazine
“Behind the fun and rollocking good times lies an outfit skilled enough for the horns to come on with the bite and precision of the Basie Band” The Guardian
