The Duke & The King – text


The Duke & The King (named in tribute to the two grifters in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn) emerged from The Catskills, an artistic hub that hosted Woodstock and inspired Bob Dylan and The Band, and released their debut album “Nothing Gold Can Stay” in 2009 to glowing reviews and a plethora of Album of the Year nods.

Set up by old friends Simone Felice (The Felice Brothers) and Bobbie ‘Bird’ Burke (Former George Clinton collaborator and founder of DRUGS) their reflective mix of rock, folk, soul and psychedelia and amazing live performances have earned them a loyal fan base. Their live dates have included an attention grabbing performance on Later with Jools Holland.

Their sound has evolved consistently through the following two albums and they have continued to garner critical acclaim culminating in their 2010 masterpiece “Long Live The Duke & The King”.
