Line Up

Kings & Bears are a groove rock trio influenced by the sounds of soul, funk, reggae and rock and driven by the transformative power of music.

"Kings and Bears are committed to their art when they are on stage that’s for sure. I’ve seen headliners play with less enthusiasm and gusto. It was a great way to start because it made the festival (2Q) feel proper somehow." Gary Lambert, Popped Music

"One of the best live performances I've ever seen by Kings & Bears tonight! #stunning" Jono Brine, BBC Introducing

The bands mission is to promote the idea that the world is worth fighting for and that love is real and it can save us all.

"It's Kings & Bears world we just happen to live in it. What. A. Set." BBC Introducing, Lincolnshire

"A small band with a big sound, when you discover K&B are a three-piece they're all the more impressive. It's clear K&B are inspired by the musical greats but the sounds produced are exciting and modern; they take us back to when each member of a band was a super talented integral part. The assured singing, catchy bass lines and drum riffs all blend together to form the best band I've ever heard to come out of Boston". Dylan Taylor, Endeavour FM

"Kings & Bears delighted us with their power funk; they mash together reggae, ska, rock and punk sounds in their music and it created a quirky performance. Bonus points for some stylish, slick beatboxing which rounded up their set." Rachel Brown, Northern Exposure

Together, Kings & Bears believe, we can go higher.
