KingShifter plays hard-ass-rock m*therf**ker! End of story. They don't play games or follow trends. The music speaks for itself. To summarize, KingShifter is all about the riff and the booze...it's all rock n' roll! KingShifter has continually “pounded” the circuit in the last few years hitting several cities repeatedly in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Missouri, as well as Arkansas. They are building a “circuit” and plan to continue their work on the road, branching out to new areas. When playing their hometown of Wichita, KS…they easily draw 250+ consistently.

champion in the “Cage Match” having beat All That Remains, Beastie Boys, and others to
hold the title for a record 9 consecutive days) KingShifter is also “in rotation” on Western Kansas’
99.9 KWKR, several internet radio stations, including Pandora...be sure to look them up.
