About the Band:
The Kingpins are a hard-hitting fun-loving band of veteran musicians who play classic Swing an R&B from the ‘50s and ‘60s (plus a few original songs penned within the idiom). Fronted by the lion-voiced Hank Lionhart and powered by a dynamic horn and rhythm section, these guys are guaranteed to bounce the audience out of their seats and onto the dance floor. A mainstay in Vancouver’s pubs and clubs from 2000 till 2005 the Kingpins have released 2 Cds: Knockin’ ‘Em Down in ’01 and This Road in ’05. After a hiatus of over 14 years Hank has reunited with original members Steve Cross (guitar/vocals) and Jack Lavin (bass/vocals) when the three of them found that they were neighbours, all having relocated to Victoria BC. Joined by original member Steve Ranta (keys) with Calgary’s own Ross Hall (drums) Wayne Kozak (sax) and Paul Wainwright (sax), this group will be sure to surprise, delight and entertain the most discerning R&B fans! Keep your eyes and ears open the Kingpins are back!
Steve Cross, Steve Ranta, Andy Graffiti, Big Hank Lionhart, Mick Woodhouse and Paul Wainwright will delight audience at High Beam Dreams on December 16th.
