  BACKGROUND VERIFIED
$600 - $2500 per event
The King Comets are an invigorating four-piece Americana group with all the sizzling flavors of Rock N Roll, Jump Swing and Rockabilly.

The King Comets focus on the swing era, early rhythm and blues, and the roots of rock 'n roll by covering such groups as Louis Prima ("Oh Marie," "Jump, Jive & Wail"), Bill Haley & His Comets ("Shake, Rattle & Roll," "13 Women") and Louis Jordan ("Caldonia," "Choo Choo Ch'boogie"). The King Comets mix in a bit of swing-inspired 50's music with Elvis Presley ("One Night With You," "One-Sided Love Affair"), Carl Perkins ("Gone, Gone Gone," "I'm Sorry I'm Not Sorry") and Bobby Darin ("Mack the Knife," "Beyond the Sea"). The band also covers the corners with a bit of famous country from Johnny Cash ("Folsom Prison Blues," "Ring of Fire") and Patsy Cline ("Walking After Midnight").

Their vocals, harmonies, and instrumentals are so contagious and all-encompassing that audiences have again and again approached the stand with such raves as "We can't sit still when you play!" and "You four cats sound like an eight-piece band!" Dressed-to-perform in 1940's and 1950's-styled suits, the KING COMETS have inspired some members of their audiences to wear similar fashions, making an evening of their music into the best kind of happily-wild participation and pleasure.
