Rude King / Bio

When it comes to great Ska music in Dallas, look no further than Rude King. Formed in 2003 in Chicago and transplanted to Dallas in 2006, Rude King has taken the scene by storm with high energy live shows and a sound rooted in 2-tone Ska, but infused with an intensity and style all their own. This dual fronted, seven-piece ska act includes male and female singers, a tight and soulful rhythm section, blistering guitar leads and a scorching-hot horn section.

Rude King's new release "Ruder, Better, Faster, Stronger" has been a well received follow-up to their debut EP, “Rude To The Last Drop”.

Known for putting on exciting live performances, Rude King enjoys success as a hot act in the Midwest, Southwest and along the West coast. Rude King is equally comfortable headlining or playing a supporting role for other regional and national touring bands. Rude King has shared the stage with many of the greats in Ska music like The Toasters, Mustard Plug, Deals Gone Bad, Big D and the Kids Table, Fishbone, Voodoo Glow Skulls, Bad Manners, Chris Murray, and more.

Locally, you'll find Rude King at every ska show actively promoting a growing Dallas Ska scene and playing local top notch venues like Trees, Liquid Lounge, Prophet Bar, and many more.

Through a steady touring schedule, Rude King is finding bigger and broader audiences; solidifying their place in the national Ska music scene. By continuing to write great songs performed by inspired musicians, they continue to impress fans and gain the respect of their peers and fans around the US and internationally.
