In the music industry, the name King King not only stands for great music and outstanding musicianship, but also - and perhaps more importantly - for having a damn good time every time.

When irrepressible band leader Alan Nimmo takes to the stage in his trademark kilt, fists in the air and a smile as wide and bright as Glasgow's River Clyde itself, there's no doubt that you're in for one of the best nights of your life - and that's before the music has even started!

King King have never been a band content to ride the crest of their self-created wave, but have worked tirelessly to make that wave bigger, stronger and ultimately better. Alan Nimmo is in no position to sit back when everything is going well and the laurels are flowing. No way. He wants to continue to raise the high level he has already achieved with every gig and every new release in order to achieve the best he and his band can. And judging by the public response, he is certainly succeeding.

After two long years in which the music business was on its knees, King King have not only survived, but have returned with a new line-up and a new quality that is the envy of many of their peers. The addition of Alan's brother Stevie on second guitar and vocals has given the band a breath of fresh air and a new dimension. This was something Alan had been looking for for some time. Together with Jonny Dyke (keyboards) and his Scottish colleagues Andrew Scott (drums) and Zander Greenshields (bass), King King sound better than ever before. A string of sold-out gigs on their recent tours is proof of this. Alan Nimmo has been in the music business for many years now - more than he cares to remember - but one thing has never changed. His desire to make honest, real music that comes from deep within the soul.
Perhaps it was the high-profile gigs supporting John Mayall's Bluesbreakers, Thunder and Europe that made King King's music accessible to a much wider audience. But it was pure talent and hard work that got them there in the first place. That same talent and hard work has allowed them to continue their ever-widening path to success ever since.

Many people feel the need to pigeonhole music, to give it a name and a place. Not King King. It is simply music. Real music. And real music has always stood the test of time and always will. King King's music is the kind of music that makes people happy. And let's face it, who doesn't want to be happy, especially in these all too dark and difficult times?

Not convinced? It's quite simple. Come to a concert and see for yourself. 'The best band in the world' is perhaps a bold statement. But rest assured that Alan and the boys will give it their all every night. You bet your kilt they will!
