Bio

“Papa” King Cole is a solid, hard-working Albertan, who has supported his family as a class 1 truck driver by day and singer/songwriter musician by night.

His music and songs reflect the life he lives and observes.

Driven with love and passion, this is music for all ages.

Multi talented man, playing drums with his feet while singing and playing guitar, and leading the band. Not a small task!

His original songs all engage with his audiences, and they leave with a good taste in their soul.

High energy, but not a nervous energy, this act can play anywhere from festivals to juke joints.

Papa King & the Boogiemen range in size from a duo to a 5 piece.The energy that fills the room when this band turns on can be compared to a hot 1950’s night on Westside Chicago or a stroll down Beale Street in the 30’s.

His band these days consists of Harpdog Brown (harpdogbrown.com) burning down the house on harmonica and vocals with Doug Freeman holding down the bottom end, while King’s two feet of trouble keep the meter tight.

Both Harpdog and Freeman are bonafide road warriors with 8 decades of experience between them.

We invite you all to come out and experience this triple threat in action.
