Love you all! 

Thanks to all our friends and fans for making 2017 an awesome year. So many great times with you all!!! We are looking forward to this new year, great shows and new tunes. Thanks too for supporting our recorded music! That means so such and goes a long way to pave the way for our next recordings.

Wow, in short, you rock and we love you for that! Yes we do, uh huh.



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.

Need a dose of good times? Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures are what the doctor orders. 
Bernie King – singing, guitar, harmonica, songwriting
