We are thrilled to have this exciting band back for their second show at The Lizard Lounge.  

From the opening notes, King Wilkies Low Country Suite announces a new beginning for the band. Using the same tools that they used to make a splash on the bluegrass circuitfiddles, banjos, dobros, string bass, acoustic guitars, and mandolinsthey forge a new sound. During the years since the release of their debut album (2004's Broke), time passed slowly, songs were written, and musical boundaries and definitions were set aside.  Produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks, Red Hot Chili Peppers), Low Country Suite finds the Charlottesville, Virginia-based band deftly tapping into rocks blue-highways heritage, drawing on the pioneering spirit of The Byrds circa Sweetheart of the Rodeo, Gram Parsons solo LPs, and the Rolling Stones in their Country Honk mode. Yet Low Country Suite, while deviating from the bands initial blueprint, incorporates their deeply rooted study of the past into a new musical framework of their own invention. The album's gentler songs are equally informed by the sixties folk of Nico, Nick Drake, and Leonard Cohen, as by Bill Monroe, the Flying Burrito Brothers, or the Byrds. King Wilkie create their own genre of music  a beautiful, true and honest sound, says Scott.
