“California Trad Jazz & more. No trumpet required.”
Since 2012 The King Street Giants have brought their own special version of New Orleans music to the Bay Area and beyond. Whether they’re playing in clubs or on the streets, The King Street Giants are infamous for radiating an infectious energy and always having a blast. While continuing to play the music of their heroes, they have also been writing original music in an effort to continue to evolve the idiom of Traditional New Orleans Jazz.
The King Street Giants have shared the stage with such acts as Les Claypool, Bonnie Raitt, Galactic, Rebirth Brass Band, The Wood Brothers, Big Sam’s Funky Nation, Charlie Musselwhite, New Orleans Suspects, Tuba Skinny, Dustbowl Revival, and many more. Their sounds have been heard at Strawberry Music Festival, Petaluma Music Festival, San Jose Jazz Fest, Healdsburg Jazz Fest, Sausalito Arts Festival, Lagunitas Beer Circus and Honk Fest West, and have appeared at events and in commercials for the San Francisco Giants. Winners of the North Bay Bohemian’s “Best of” Best Band in Sonoma County award in 2017, as well as Best Jazz Band in 2022 and 2014, The King Street Giants released their 3rd studio album, 4th in total, on August 3rd, 2020. Titled “Everything Must Go”, the album features 11 original songs written by the band, including their first ever original vocal tunes.
