Biography



The Kokomo Kings – Too Good To Stay Away From
The long awaited follow up of their classy debuet record „Artificial Natural“ is here, its called „Too Good To Stay Away“ full of red hot rockin Rhythm and Blues. 12 colorful originals prove once again the smartness and craftmanship of this danish/swedish Cooperation. Long awaited is the remake of „The River Tumed To Steam“ which was available as 7inch version only or „A Wasted Day Is Forever Lost“ another dancefloor killer ! Smart lyrics, raw unpolished and primitive Rhythms made for dancing ! This is too good to stay away from, so hurry up and get this little platter from your local record dealer !

Take a big bucket of unpolished Mississippi juke joint boogie and blend it with another bucket of laid back down home blues. Add a teacup of swamp pop, a tablespoon of hillbilly and a pound of profane, ecstatic gospel and you´ll have the Kokomo Kings. This is rock´n´roll before rock´n´roll was born. Nothing but primitive, groovy Saturday-night music made for dancing.
The band is a collaboration of some of Swedens and Denmarks absolute top players. After years of backing a long list of international blues artists like James Harman, Mud Morganfield, Big Jack Johnson, Lazy Lester, Louisiana Red, John Primer, Big Joe Louis, Keith Dunn, Rusty Zinn and so on, and playing with a number of Scandinavian bands like The Instigators, The Domestic Bumblebees, Paul & The Blue Delivery, Peter Nande Band and many others, they decided to start a new band and do their own thing.
Finally, they got together in the spring of 2012 to record the debut 45rpm vinyl-single “Artificial Natural”. It took of good, and many said it was among the best sounding recording for years!
Guitar player Ronni received the award “Danish Blues artist of the year” in September 2013.
In October 2013 they released the full length album “Artificial Natural” that received great rewievs. Many Blues- and Rock´n´Roll fans claimed that it was the first time for many years that they listened to a blues album from the first song to the last, and just loved every second of it!
In October 2015 the italian record Company "Turkish Records" released their new fishing-song "The River Turned to Steam" on vinyl.
In 2016 they signed Rhythm Bomb Records who will release their 2nd album in 2017.
Since the start, they´ve performed at clubs and festivals in Sweden, Denmark, United Kingdom, Germany, Finland, Norway, France and Spain.
