King Sunshine

King Sunshine


This 9 piece Toronto collective with a big brass section and a powerhouse vocalist sought to create a house centric fusion that integrates elements of jazz, techno, latin and soul into a disco- funk sound that defies anybody to resist the dancefloor. Thoroughly original and captivating.


King Sunshine illuminates disco roots and drop inflections of funk and dance rhythms, reinventing house music and driving the whole fusion over the red line. Imagine nine musicians transformed into one live DJ. Comprised of keyboards/synths, heart pounding drums/percussion, deep bass, slick guitar, intense electronics, hefty horns and soulful vocals. King Sunshine has been lighting dance floors on fire since 1998 as a highly skilled and electric live act. KS has redefined the concert going experience. With the release of their second album Second Movement in fall 06, King Sunshine is poised to branch out to new segments of music lovers worldwide. Experiences at Canadas largest music festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2005 and 2006, Ottawa Blues Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, Toronto Harbourfront Festivals and Halifaxs Evolve Festival has brought KS nationwide recognition. Years of sold out club shows and underground parties have led to shared stages with music's finest DJs, including DJ Sneak, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Ron Trent and Little Louis Vega. King Sunshines raw explosive energy takes dance music off of vinyl and brings it to the live stage. Emulating a DJ approach by building up their climaxes and breakdowns, and mixing their songs together into one continuous seamless set of music. People have described their concerts as deep and moving and "a powerful, unforgettable, rhythmic experience". The weathers beautiful on the dancefloor!
