The Kings of Lyon played their debut gig in February at a venue in Harrogate and it was a huge success. Two hundred and fifty tickets were sold filling the venue to capacity and the enthusiastic crowd shouted them back on stage for two encores. The band then played to a sell-out crowd at a new 650 capacity music venue in Hull in early March. They’ve taken four more subsequent bookings from this night alone for private parties and nightclubs in Newcastle and Lincolnshire.
The four musicians who make up the Kings of Lyon are no strangers to success in the music industry, having performed together for over seven years in various projects.
They were crowned ‘Global Icon Winners 2008′. Global Icon was an online competition sponsored by ‘Sky Television’ which featured thousands of bands from all over Europe. The competition was filmed and recorded in Manchester in front of a live voting audience and from this they’ve received much interest from several record companies.
The Kings of Lyon burst onto the tribute scene at the beginning of this year and were confident from the outset that their show would create quite a stir and they were dead right. What makes the Kings of Lyon so special is that they are still young, have a great sound and are fortunate to have captured the look as well.
The band come equipped with a professional sound engineer who they consider to be the ‘fifth member’ because he has such an accomplished grasp of their sound, a range of top quality sound systems and lighting to suit any venue. The band perform an exciting 90 minute live set encompassing all the hits from the Kings of Leon’s last four albums.
“I just wanted to drop you a note to say how great the band were. They played a great set and are very talented. They joined in with the banter of the wedding and fitted in really well. Great bunch of lads! In the words of my wife ‘they helped make the wedding great’ Top draw band and would highly recommend to anyone” – Sam Hobcraft
