B.B. King

The B.B. King Blues Band are thrilled to announce their new partnership with The B.B. King Estate. This joint venture now finds the two forces working together to bring the world The B.B. King Experience, the band’s new working name. In addition to the upcoming world tour (dates listed below), the single “Rock Me Baby” featuring George Benson, Tito Jackson and Claudette King will be released this summer.

Five years since the passing of the great B.B. King, his towering influence over the blues world, and beyond, remains undimmed. King’s music will never be forgotten, and the iconic bluesman’s presence is felt stronger than ever as his spirit will appear on tour. With over 100 years of cumulative experience between them, the “Experience” not only supported King, but they would start each show by performing onstage before B.B. came on-stage. The B.B. King Experience’s current line-up includes: James ‘Boogaloo’ Bolden (trumpet). Russell Jackson (bass and vocals), Wilbert Crosby (guitar and vocals), Darrell Lavigne (keyboards). Claudette King (vocals) and Myron ‘Big Jack’ Jackson (trumpet.)

The bands last album was released in May 2019 and debuted at #1 in the Billboard Blues Charts. The Soul of the King featured many A-listers including Taj Mahal, Joe Louis Walker, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Kenny Neal & Michael Lee.
