Fancy a biscuit?

King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys.
King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys.

The legendary King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys will take to the stage at the Platform in Morecambe on Friday, October 16 with their breathtaking mix of 1940s Kansas City jazz and blues.

The band has been on the road for three decades playing across western Europe, as well as touring the USA, Russia and the Middle East.

In that time they’ve also clocked up more than 50 TV appearances (including, somewhat bizarrely, five episodes of Teletubbies) and 75 radio broadcasts, firmly establishing themselves as the Kings of Swing.

Expect musicianship and a riveting stage performance from the most authentic rhythm and blues band ever to come from outside the USA.

The main man, King Pleasure, is unique.

He sings, he romps, he roars, he relentlessly drives the band forward, and clearly has such a ball when he does it.

Bands are rarely blessed with such a huge personality, and the bonus comes with his sensational tenor saxophone playing.

They pride themselves on the happy jazz era they evoke each time they go on stage.

The King and the Boys have acquired an ever-growing fan base over their three decades – at the last count there were 2,500 people around the world sufficiently fanatical to join the band’s fan club.

Their show this Friday starts at 7.30pm, and tickets are priced at £14, and are available online at www.lancaster.gov.uk/platform-tickets.

You can buy tickets over the phone on 01524 582803 and from the Visitor Information Centres at the Platform and The Storey in Lancaster.
