The Bear is loose!!! 

Our new album "Bear" is now available! Just click on our Music link and you'll be able to preview all the tracks from our newest release along with all our previous releases.

Bernie, John, Julie and Bradley send our heart-felt thanks out to all our many friends who came out to help us celebrate the release of our newest album "Bear" at the Hook and Ladder Theater. What a great night of music and friendship it was. Y'all rock!


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
