About The King Beez
The common thread that connects Beale Street, B.B. King's Blues Club, and The King Beez: They represent the best of the best of soul, R&B, and world-famous Memphis music. Beale Street is a mecca for blues, and B.B. King's Blues Club is the street's premier nightclub. The King Beez, center stage at B.B. King's for over 20 years, breathe new life into the very soul of R&B, for they have captured the essence of the genre.
For over 20 years, the King Beez have set the standard for R&B bands in Memphis and beyond. Elegant and tasteful when required, funky and booty-shakin' when needed — the King Beez are truly the best of the best.
These pros have taken Memphis music around the U.S. and the world with such legends as Rufus Thomas, Isaac Hayes, Al Green, Shirley Brown, and Jay Blackfoot, and they've played countless weddings, reunions, and parties throughout the Mid-South. They were Ruby Wilson's backing band for a decade at B.B. King's, and they are consummate professionals, ready to start your party with cool jazz and finish with red-hot R&B.
