Mighty Lester & the Blues Kings

Feels like a lifetime ago. In a former life I played guitar, managed, booked and designed for the baddest little big band in the land, Mighty Lester & the Blue Kings. A roaring 8-piece blues and soul powerhouse that in my humble opinion was one of the best bands in the state of North Carolina for the better part of a decade. Now mind you when we started out we were not that good. That took time together. Many shows. But what got us ahead of the curve? How did we come out of the gate with confidence that at the time exceeded our talent. We looked good. We took the time to brand ourselves. While other bands were doing no promotion or hand written flyers we were putting up posters. From the outset we made people feel they were missing out if they missed out on seeing Mighty Lester & the Blues Kings. Eventually we moved onto just being known as Mighty Lester and that is a story for another project...

Thanks Mighty Lester & the Blues Kings!
