The band sez:
We will play the most danceable swinging blues you can imagine.
"Clear out the furniture and toss the cats outside"
Interstate 40 Rhythm Kings plays a very tough Rhythm’n’Blues with influences of black american music from late 40’s and early 50’s.
Interstate 40 Rhythm Kings are somewhere between Rhythm’n’Blues, early Rock 'n' Roll and Jump.
The repertoire contains material from Roy Milton, Smiley Lewis, Todd Rhodes and Big Joe Turner to name a few.
