Sky Kings – California Country Rock – 9 piece band
The Sky Kings is an original Americana band. Their signature blend of clear vocal harmonies and lush instrumentation make them a standout among other west coast bands.
Influenced by many of the bands of their youth, including CSN, The Byrds, The Eagles, Jackson Browne, and Poco, The Sky Kings pay tribute the early California country/rock scene, while blending original material seamlessly into their show. The original members of the The Sky Kings regularly toured Northern California, headlining shows and opening for such acts as Tim McGraw, Kenny Chesney, Alabama, Trisha Yearwood, Poco, Leanne Womack, Wynonna Judd, Merle Haggard and many, many more. The Sky King’s big band show features three great lead vocalists, a horn section, pedal steel , and a world class rhythm section. And with the musical diversity of the members filling in the gaps with Steely Dan, Billy Joel, and John Hiatt.

Equally at home with jazz, R&B, country, rock, Latin and even classical music, Gayden and the band bring a spirit of innovation and improvisation to every song and genre they touch upon.
