Winners of the Blues Lounge Radio show Band of the Year 2018 award! The Kokomo Kings ain´t nothing but primitive, groovy Saturday-night music made for dancing. 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, they decided to start a new band and do their own thing. In October 2013 they released the full length album Artificial Natural that received great rewievs. Many Blues- and Rock´n´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! 2017 Rhythm Bomb Records released their 2nd album Too Good to Stay Away From.
The album made No 5 on the american Blues Junctions best albums of 2017, and the german magazine Blues News made it album of the month. The Ameripolitan Music Awards in Memphis nominated the Kokomo Kings to best rockabilly band 2018, and the band won the band of the year 2018 award from the Blues Lounge Radio Show in the U.K.. Their music has been used in the american TV-series Chicago Police (NBC) and FBI (CBS).
