Imagine... nine musicians transformed into one "live" DJ. Comprised of keyboards/synths, heart pounding drums/percussion, deep bass, slick guitar, intense electronics, tight horns and soulful vocals. King Sunshine has been lighting dance floors on fire since 1998 as a highly skilled and electric live act. KS has redefined the concert going experience. With the release of their second album "Second Movement" in fall '06, King Sunshine is poised to branch out to new segments of music lovers worldwide. Experiences at Canada's largest music festivals including the Montreal Jazz Festival in 2005 and 2006, Ottawa Blues Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, Toronto Harbourfront Festivals and Halifax's Evolve Festival has brought KS nationwide recognition. Years of sold out club shows and underground parties have led to shared stages with music's finest DJs, including DJ Sneak, Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, Ron Trent, Theo Parrish and Little Louis Vega. King Sunshine's raw explosive energy takes dance music off of vinyl and brings it to the live stage. Emulating a DJ approach by building up their climaxes and breakdowns, and mixing their songs together into one continuous seamless set of music. People have described their concerts as "deep and moving" and 'a powerful, unforgettable, rhythmic experience'. "The weather's beautiful on the dancefloor!"
