The Diva Kings were formed around dual Sacramento singer/songwriters Christopher Twomey and Daniel Rau. Stemming from a previous project, 2Me, Christopher Twomey and guitarist Nathan Bisig had been performing together for nearly a decade across the United States. Rau would occasionally join the band on stage and appeared on 2Me’s final 2 albums. The Diva Kings were created as a platform for Rau to unleash his songwriting and vocal abilities on the world, while serving as a vessel for Twomey to continue his legacy. Drummer Lucas Thompson, already a long time friend of the guys, was recruited by the band, which kept everything in the musical family created by 2Me and Thompson’s other band, Out of Place, in the early 2000’s.
The music has been best described as Americana/Rock because it has a country rock feel without the twangy vocals, but still possesses the intimacy of a singer/songwriter. Subtle, country/blues guitar licks, creative chord arrangements, driving beats, and 3-part vocal harmonies all help to create The Diva Kings’ sound. They have been compared to Van Morrison, Ben Harper, Jim Croce, John Mayer and Pearl Jam most often.
The versatility in the music gives The Diva Kings the ability to rock a crowded venue or serenade a concert hall. The band likes to focus on their original music, but they are also armed with a large arsenal of cover songs to surprise the crowd with. They often have surprise guest musicians join them on stage in the cities they visit, creating some memorable improv jam sessions for the crowd and the musicians. The Diva Kings are an act you definitely do not want to miss!
