Take a big bucket of unpolished Mississippi juke joint boogie and blend it with another bucket of laid back down home blues. Add a teacup of swamp pop, a tablespoon of hillbilly and a pound of profane, ecstatic gospel and youÂ´ll have the Kokomo Kings. This is rockÂ´nÂ´roll before rockÂ´nÂ´roll was born. Nothing but primitive, groovy Saturday-night music made for dancing. The band is a collaboration of some of Swedens and Denmarks absolute top players. After years of backing a long list of international blues artists like James Harman, Mud Morganfield, Big Jack Johnson, Lazy Lester, Louisiana Red, John Primer, Big Joe Louis, Keith Dunn, Rusty Zinn and so on, and playing with a number of Scandinavian bands like The Instigators, The Domestic Bumblebees, Paul & The Blue Delivery, Peter Nande Band and many others, they decided to start a new band and do their own thing. Finally, they got together in the spring of 2012 to record the debut 45rpm vinyl-single "Artificial Natural". It took of good, and many said it was among the best sounding recording for years! Guitar player Ronni received the award "Danish Blues artist of the year" in September 2013. In October 2013 they released the full length album "Artificial Natural" that received great rewievs. Many Blues- and RockÂ´nÂ´Roll fans claimed that it was the first time for many years that they listened to a blues album from the first song to the last, and just loved every second of it! Since that, theyÂ´ve performed at clubs and festivals in Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Norway and England. The members: Samuel "Harmonica Sam" Andersson: vocals and harmonica Magnus Lanshammar: bass and guitar Ronni Busack-Boysen: lead guitar Daniel WinerÃ¶: drums Get ready to boogie with The Kokomo Kings. Probably the best low down boogie band in the neighborhood! "This is a musical punch in the face. ItÂ´s brutally good. ItÂ´s More RockÂ´nÂ´Roll than RockÂ´nÂ´Roll!" (Lira 1-2014) "Outstanding! YÂ´all are going to get a lot of play here. More more! (Don o./KNON 89.3 FM, DALLAS) "A Retro sound beyond Retro. They play their instruments through amps driven by steam and pure will" (Universum Noll) "a treasure that will fulfill your expectations and bring a joyful light to your boring daily routine or sad existence" (La Hora del Blues, Spain) "These guys have the hell of a groove and will blow hats, wigs or whatever you have on your heads off! A+ Five Star release all the way!" (Bear Family Records) "Energy level 11" (Blues News, Norway)
