Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures might be tough to bracket but they sure are easy to enjoy. A little bit blues, a little bit bluegrass, a little bit rock, and a little bit kitchen sink, a style of music that some fans have come to call “blues-grass”. You'll hear some great original songs inspired by the styles of Shane McGowan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, and Bill Monroe. With a rough and tumble mix of guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, washboard, snare drum, and accordion Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures are exactly what the doctor ordered. 
Bernie King – singing, guitar, harmonica, songwriting
John Kurtis Dehn – guitar, mandolin, banjo, singing
Julie King – percussion, accordion
Bradley Smith - bass
