One of the UK’s most talked-about unsigned bands: The K’s come to Ramsgate on January 29th as part of their Independent Venue Week 2022 tour!
With local support from Evan Williams.
“One of the best underground bands around today” – A Northern One
The K’s are Jamie Boyle (Vocals/Guitar), Ryan Breslin (Lead Guitar), Dexter Baker (Bass) and Jordan Holden (Drums). They formed in Earlestown (a suburb directly in between Manchester and Liverpool) in late 2017 by four school friends who have now become impossible to ignore.
With just six singles released, their streaming numbers are comfortably in the millions, with 39,250 monthly Spotify listeners and self released debut single ‘Sarajevo’ notching 2.2 million streams.
In the last two years, The K’s have sold out every headline show they have played, including venues such as the O2 Ritz Manchester (1,500 capacity) and were set to headline Manchester Academy (2,600 capacity) in October 2020 as part of their UK tour before COVID meant postponing.
The band also featured on the 2020 Recording Academy GRAMMYs and have hosted two live streamed shows since the start of last summer’s lockdown, which sold in excess of 3,000 tickets. The online attention drawn from these shows and the weekly hosted “Friday Night with The K’s” Facebook live streams has also led to the band receiving brand deals from various companies, notably Gibson Guitars, Scotts Menswear and Lyle and Scott, all of which are still on going.

“Their musicality is a fervid vessel engulfed in rock and roll riffs, inexorable instrumentation and strapping vocals for a potent message on the digital age’s effects on modern society” – Gig Goer
