In support of the release of their highly acclaimed latest album Tales Of A Rich Girl, Adelaide Neo Blues band Kings & Associates are heading to New Zealand to play shows in Napier and Whangarei on the 2nd and 3rd of March respectively.

Reviews have been nothing short of astonishing with Huffington Post’s Randy Radic labelling it “a humdinger from the land down under”.

Just announced, Kings & Associates head the list of nominations for the 2018 Australian Blues Music Awards, picking up a nomination in the categories; Album of the Year, Song of the Year and Artist of the Year and Duo or Group of the Year.
