Spring is here and Summer is on the way!!! 

Looking forward to the year ahead. We've got some new tunes and lotsa great shows ahead. Make sure to check our calendar here and follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out. Love to all and thanks so much for being the best friends and fans. See ya soon!!!


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
