Jason King (title).png

Jason has a musical career spanning over 30 years! From the age of 13, he has been playing a musical instrument, from Flute and Guitar at school, Fife in a Cadet band and he dabbled with the drums at 16 until he finally settled on the Double Bass, starting off with the Skiffle tea chest for a short time until he bought his own upright bass in 1983, making it his instrument of choice.

From then on, with himself on bass and lead vocals, his brother Ethan beside him on drums, it was a mixture of pubs, clubs, cruises, hotels and holiday camps for around 16 years.

"Country and Rock 'n' Roll music had always been a big influence in my life from the early days of listening to my Dad play records by artists such as Merle Haggard, George Jones, Charlie Rich and Boxcar Willie, to name a few, and my Mum's small collection of Elvis and various Rock 'n' Roll compilation albums. There was no doubt where my musical taste would take me."

"As most of my music listening and buying records came during the 80's, which had so much to offer with artists such as Darts, Shakin' Stevens and Matchbox, it wasn't long before the sound of Rockabilly and Psychobilly music, which have a heavy sway toward the Double Bass (or Slap Bass) came calling and I caught the rockin' music bug. Recently, I was also lucky enough to be invited to play bass on Colbert Hamilton and the Nitros latest album, which was a great opportunity."

Since 1999, it has been a mixture of singing and playing rhythm guitar in his own band on the UK Rock 'n' Roll circuit, and also playing bass for one of the UK's top Rock 'n' Roll bands, Good Rockin' Tonight

Over the last 6 years Jason has been working with Rock 'n' Roll Paradise and travelling all over the UK working with hi own band and other top UK Rock 'n' Roll bands.
