Always a pleasure to hear the Biscuit Boys

Where: Stroud Subscription Rooms

When: Saturday, October 27, 8pm

2018 sees King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys celebrate a remarkable 30 years on the road - and on October 27 they will be appearing in Stroud.

More than the greatest jump, jive and swing band on the planet, they've become an institution.

In their three decades, the band have delivered nearly 6,500 performances in 21 countries, played on 36 radio shows and made 73 television appearances, including several on Blue Peter, The Teletubbies, as well as the Paradise Club series [where they were the house band], Challenge Anneka, The Gadget Show and on a prime time National Lottery advertisement.

Rough, tough and always rocking, King Pleasure & The Biscuit Boys have appeared at festivals, in concert and at clubs throughout the UK and Europe - and they still play the Birmingham Jazz Festival, where they have headlined for an unprecedented 14 years.

The band has also performed alongside B.B. King, Cab Calloway and His Orchestra, Ray Charles, and toured with the actual Blues Brothers Band - the one from the movie.

Along the way, the band have recorded 11 albums for Big Bear Records, all distributed worldwide physically and online.

The band line up as King Pleasure (vocals and baritone saxophone), Boysey Battrum (alto and tenor saxophones), Bullmoose K Shirley (guitars), Mighty Matt Foundling (piano), Shark Van Schtoop (bass), and Gary 'The Enforcer' Barber (percussion).

Tickets for the Stroud gig are £16.50 and available from the Subs Rooms box office on 01453 760900 or online at http://www.subscriptionrooms.org.uk/whats-on/king-pleasure-and-the-biscuit-boys/
