The Poor Kings are comprised of seasoned and award winning singer/songwriter/performers from a mix of several genres of music. Although drawn together by music, our members have fostered lifelong friendships with over a decade of playing time together. The end result is a smooth, tight and energetic sound with fantastic chemistry and stage presence.
All of our members have had years of training and professional experience in several genres including: rock, country, soul, r&b, jazz, folk & pop - Exceptional instrumental ability is blended with rich harmonies that make our “sound” unique and memorable.
We blend all of this experience into dynamic and diverse sets for our audiences. We include original compositions with tasteful and thoughtful renditions of famous covers that get folks moving and reminiscing. The Poor Kings refuse to be a “jukebox” of unimpressive renditions of a decade's “top 25 hits” list. Instead, we perform to achieve a memorable and enjoyable experience for our listeners. Also, we will conform to the desired mood required for the event. From the soft, subtle and moodiness of an elegant dinner party, to an energetic festival, to a combination need of a wedding reception, we can accommodate most situations.

Michael McDonald, Justin Timberlake, Mr. Mister, John Mayer, Restless Heart, Katy Perry, Bon Jovi, Boys2Men, Lionel Richie, Gavin Degraw, The Eagles, Level 42, Huey Lewis & The News, Michael Jackson, Coldplay, Randy Travis, Whitney Houston, Phil Collins, Amos Lee, Hall & Oates, Ray Lamontagne, Bruce Hornsby, Vertical Horizon, Diamond Rio, George Michael, Willie Nelson, England Dan & John Ford Coley, Tonic, Bobby Darin, Toto, and many, many more… (requests welcomed)
