Biography

2017 Cascade Blues Association Muddy Award Winner: “Best New Act”

The Lightning Kings is a 10-piece blues-funk-rock hybrid band that has taken the Pacific Northwest by storm in 2017.

Their freshman album, The Road Is My Throne, has received great reviews in the blues community. Terry Robb, who mixed the album, said The Lightning Kings’ music “is a unique blend of classic Blues, Rock and Funk. Albert King meets Led Zeppelin and Earth Wind and Fire. Passionate playing and original songwriting with strong arrangements.”

Accolades include the 2017 Cascade Blues Association Muddy Award for “Best New Act” and Finalist in the 2017 Cascade Blues Association Journey to Memphis Competition, playing the 2017 Safeway Waterfront Blues Festival.

The Lightning Kings were also selected to perform at the 2017 Portland Rose Festival where they were joined onstage by Grammy Award Nominee Andy Stokes and Grammy Award Nominee Terry Robb.

On break from their touring schedule they are currently in the studio recording their sophomore album for late fall release.
