King of the World was formed in January 2011 by a group of longtime friends....guys that grew up on this music and love it at a deep level. For KOTW, Steely Dan is the other level; a voodoo cocktail of cool....sort of the mutant offspring of Rock and Jazz. If Mingus or Ellington had a Rock & Roll band, this is what it might sound like. While KOTW revere the music of Fagan, Becker & Co., they don't take themselves or the whole endeavor too seriously. Steely Dan was celebrated for some of the most musical, pristine recordings ever committed to tape but KOTW make no unwarranted claim to any such lofty sonic ideals. Faithful to the original but happy to put a little stank on things, come to a show and find out: King of the World get down.
