THE PIZZA KINGS - ORIGINAL MUSIC with AN OCCASIONAL COVER WE LIKE
The Pizza Kings are a band made up of 3 guys who all share a common love of different styles of music. Klint McEachnie was born in Edmonton, Alberta but grew up in Burnaby, British Columbia right near the Vancouver boundry. Tony and Dom were born and raised in East Vancouver, in the heart of Little Italy.
All three of them grew up on a diet of British Invasion, R&B, Soul, Funk, Blues, Folk, Jazz, Rockabilly, and Country music. All three played in countless bands doing one, two, and three-nighters in high school gyms, bars, restaurants, clubs, legions and halls, playing weddings, dances, parties, bar mitzvahs, and virtually anywhere where the people wanted live music. As a result, their musical tastes are wide and varied and this is reflected in their writing style.
The Pizza Kings enjoy being primarily a studio band. In the past 15 years they have basically produced one cd of material each year consisting of original songs and some eclectic cover tunes. Since today's musical audience has so many choices, and records, tapes, and even cds, have decreased in importance as music vehicles, The Kings are content to distribute their music on line as the songs emerge.
Their lyrics reflect life in everyday terms that we all can understand. Places, people, emotions and thoughts that we all have experienced at one time or another. And all coupled with memorable melodies and cool guitar licks that stick in your head.
When the muse strikes, there is no telling what form it will take, but one thing is for sure.... it will always sound like The Pizza Kings.
