ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Hard knockin', feet stompin', rollin' & rockin'. This is King Bee.

King Bee brings it dirty and gritty with a whole lotta soul. Hard knockin', feet stompin', rollin and a rockin "Live and it ain't no jive." Fuse down home southern style Rock-n-Roll, classic blues, a pinch of funk, with a whole lotta jam and you get King Bee. This is South Florida's newest edition to the Dirty South Music scene. There's no gimmick to this hard working streetwise band.
With the release of their debut album, "Only on Good Days", King Bee has generated a local buzz in South Florida. What's more, their intense live performances earned them opening spots for Leon Russell, Deep Banana Blackout, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Fishbone, and The Ska-talites. The album holds ten solid tracks compared by many fans to The Black Crowes and The Allman Brothers Band. However, make no mistake about it, King Bee has a style all their own. King Bee comes together as one very solid core, making surprises the only regular thing you'll see at one of their shows. Whether it's jamming with a full brass section, organ players or multiple guitarists, King Bee stays true to the jam while keeping the structure of their album material in tact.

Hard to believe this kind of ROCK N ROLL can come out of Miami.
Hard to believe this kind of ROCK N ROLL can come out of Miami. These guys put their balls on the line creating one of the best ROCK N ROLL records I've heard this year. This album has it all from the heavy ballad to one hell of a BLUES. Lyrically and melodically on point while still driving that ROCK N ROLL. No high-lights can really be pulled out cause I enjoyed this thing from begining to end.
If you like The Black Crowes or The Allman Brothers Band, this is the perfect album to pick up the torch where those bands left off.
Thanks for a great album!

Only On Good Days is Southern rock for fans of both electrified, Allmans-inspire
Only On Good Days is Southern rock for fans of both electrified, Allmans-inspired guitar workouts and the wider textural spaces and blue skies of Widespread Panic, even though King Bee don't mathematically add the two sides of their musical, goateed heritage to create an easily predictable hybrid. Tracks like "Juniper Rose", which adds an AM-radio flange to singer Angel Suarez's already elastic vocals, bring hints of Cream and even psychier influences to bear, especially in its slide-meets-wah-wah guitar solo halfway through.
Suarez contributes surrealistic lyrics that further complicate the band's good-ol'-boy persona. "Riff A" ruminates on a turning point in a relationship with a string of bizarre metaphors that don't quite match, and "Only on Good Days" demonstrates a sense of humor alien to the stereotypical Southern rocker ("Leaving trails of speediness / Wisdom, age and all that"). The songs themselves move beyond guitar-rock trappings too, incorporating horns into the mix ("Blind Rat") or showing gentle signs of prog-rock ("Blind Rat").

So while Only On Good Days fits comfortably within the Southern rock idiom, it's not incapable of moving past that dusty corner's more obvious trappings and taking on a boisterous life of its own.

RENE ALVAREZ - UNDERBELLY / Local & Indie Music STREET MAGAZI

FUNKY GOOD DAYS
Dirty, humid, hot, sweaty: these are words that come to mind when listening to local roots rockers King Bee's new album Only on Good Days. Vocalist Angel Suarez, adroitly combining soul with pop intuition, sings about loss -- loss of grace, loss of security, loss of balance, loss of just about everything. The line ''I've been running with a pail full of holes'' from their song ''Juniper Rose'' exemplifies what the album, circling like a vulture, is going for: a head dive into the past.

Fusing heavy Delta-style blues angst with modern rock hopelessness, Only on Good Days is a strong album because of some good songwriting. Album opener ''Riff A'' -- with its rolling rhythms, muddy guitar riffs, and call to huddle under common shelter -- blares like a tour bus going 100 mph down an empty stretch of highway. Other solid tunes are the gospel-influenced ''Time Come Again'' and the title track. If you're into the Black Crowes -- and can imagine them, say, with a Southern Baptist preacher singing lead -- King Bee will not disappoint.

It Rocks Baby!
You know how you hear bits of a CD, buy it, get it home and then wonder what you were thinking? This isn't one of those CDs. I like it more each time I listen to it. Gritty and polished at the same time. It Rocks Baby!
