Reggie Britton and the Sofa Kings

What do you get when you take a fired-up blues band of veteran rockers, add a tastefully sweet horn section of exceptionally talented players, then top it off with a vibrant, soulful front man entertainer? A really good band called Reggie Britton and the Sofa Kings, that’s what. In the beginning, Britton, drummer and vocalist of the popular local blues group Black Magic Johnson, asked guitarist David Lumsden to sit in with BMJ. In return Lumsden offered Britton a chance to step out from behind the drums and front the Sofa Kings featuring Eric Tinsley on bass and Dion Doss as the drummer. With the addition of Tim Bahn on keyboards, Brian Pryor on trumpet and Kenny Humble on saxophone, the group expanded to reach its full blues and R & B potential. Set lists include standards from Al Green, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, BB King, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Otis Redding and many others, plus a few of Reggie’s outstanding originals.
