$375 - $3000 per event
Dive Bar Kings explores the connections between the Blues and other American roots styles such as rock-a-billy, western swing, surf/instrumental and 50's rock & roll. They are just a good old Honky Tonkin' Blues Rockin' band!

Arriving on the Chicago blues scene in 1998, singing drummer Dexter Hudgins became a familiar face in area clubs playing behind artists such as Hubert Sumlin, Harmonica Hinds, Sammy Fender, Todd Tijerina, Jon McDonald and Tom Holland. Dex spent nearly two years from Winter 1999 to Autumn of 2000 as music director/drummer for Mandi Loomis at the Chicago House of Blues Hotel, hiring local musicians such as Orlando Wright (Buddy Guy), Mike Wheeler (Chicago Playboys), and Daryl Coots (Ronnie Baker Brooks), to perform not only in the hotel's "Kaz Bar Lounge", but to do corporate gigs and Mandi's CD as well.

The experience at H.O.B. hotel gave Dex a taste of life outside of the sideman role and reinforced his long standing desire to become his own front man/music director. Moving back to Atlanta and playing with Donna Hopkins, Sammy Blue and Brian Ashley Jones. Dex decided to get back to what he really wanted to do and formed the band Dive Bar Kings!

Dex sought versatile and experienced players who could do justice to the assortment of roots, rock and rhythm & blues music he had long carried in his head. He found such talent with guitarist Bob DelGiudice (Bobby D), bassist Mark Prazen, and last but certainly not least, Andrew Doss on keys and more. All together they produce a powerful groove that has jelled into a unit that provides live dance entertainment for private functions, nightclubs, and on the concert stage. They are an energetic, crowd-pleasing choice for any event. Drop into one of DBK's gigs at a local club with no cover charge and you'll experience one of the best performances you will ever see for FREE!
