To Paradise Kings, the F word means Fun and these dudes bring it in high style. With confident vocals, tasty guitar tones and some rollicking piano, they have a vintage ‘50s sound that really swings. No listener could help but smile when hearing this band, especially their humor-laced lyrics, as in “I’d Sing The Blues If I Had ‘Em’,” a song about one man’s incredible luck at pulling coolness from calamity. They even find humor in incarceration as in “Three Strikes” with the shouted tagline “turn out the lights!” “‘69 Chevy” showcases the band’s stellar musicianship. Yes, the songs’ sometimes lumpy lyrics need some Turtle Wax. But it’s clear that this feel-good foursome knows how to entertain a crowd.
