The Maffa Kings

The Maffa Kings are a Rock band that find it hard to be more specific when describing their genre..
directory of local bands

They take influence from all over the 'rock' music spectrum, from Southern Soul to Reggae to grunge, to punk funk, country, indie, big beat and furthermore beyond that with influneces drawn from hip hop, house music amongst many others.... The Maffa Kings were formed in 2008 but have changed lineup twice in that time. Originally a four piece but now five which has allowed the band to be far more expansive with their guitars, adding an extra vocal and more percussion sounds...

The Maffa Kings sound is equally at home on an acoustic stage stripped down to two guitars and two vocals/percussion as it would be with the full band in a stadium!!! A liten to the bands latest EP 'Every Black Cloud' see's songs of a varied nature, something the band continually pride themselves on, 'we aim to write the next song completely different from the last'.. The Ep allows you to discover boy meets girl dancy numbers, politically charged reggae numbers, haunting ballade and deep inside grunge epics... All with a physchedelic feel...
