"The band’s five masterful musicians weave layers of complex music within a reggae framework and may be one of the most diverse bands in the genre." – JamBase

Kings & Comrades

Originally formed in 2006, as two-piece acoustic outfit consisting of singer, songwriter Jeff McCaughey and drummer/percussionist Steve Morris, the band has grown and evolved a lot since their early days. The band added members on bass, guitar, and percussion and began recording demos and playing shows. Kings and Comrades have played many venues in the Philadelphia area including World Cafe Live, and headlining The Trocadero Mainstage. After a hiatus that has seen members move on and pursue new avenues, the band reformed in the summer of 2010 with Dennis Stolle on Bass and Brandon Paster filling out the sound on Keyboards. The band has high hopes for 2010-2011 and will be recording a brand new EP at the highly-esteemed Studio 4 right outside of Philadelphia this November. With the release of the new cd, Kings and Comrades will begin playing shows and touring this upcoming holiday season and winter...stay tuned for some brand new music, the band is very excited about the coming months. One Love.
