The John King Band was formed in November of 2010 in Athens, Georgia. Since the age of 15, singer/songwriter John King had a dream of blending the stylistic qualities of Southern Rock and Country. Several years later, he finally found that unique sound.

In 2011, The John King Band had their first big break through when they decided to enter The National College Battle of the Bands. After beating out thousands of bands in the Southeast division of the competition, the guys went on to L.A. to compete in the final five. As King states, “Since the battle, we have been hitting on all cylinders. We have gotten offers to play shows all around the Southeast and we are really seeing a huge increase in our fan base.. it’s a really exciting time.”

King has surrounded himself with one of the most talented young bands in the Southeast. Andrew King, King's younger brother, is one of the most gifted drummers to come out of Georgia in years. Bassist, Bobby Pinkston, JKB is grounded with a solid rhythm section. Guitarists, Parker Smith and Joe Higgins support a brilliant double-lead harmony digging up a sound that has been dormant since the glory days of Lynard Skynard and The Allman Brothers. If blazing twin lead guitar is not enough to catch your attention, the songs will.

For the past year, The John King Band has taken the South by storm - performing with Country acts such as, Florida Georgia Line, Kip Moore, Craig Morgan, Brantley Gilbert, Diamond Rio, and Jerrod Niemann.

In January 2013, The John King Band signed to Nashville based record label, Black River Entertainment, alongside artist's Craig Morgan, Kellie Pickler, and more. For more information on Black River Entertainment visit
