Kid Royal Band

Kid Royal Band

Blues


 
With a career in music spanning almost 25 years, St. Petersburg, Fl, based Chris “Kid” Royal has a history in a genre where history is important and somewhat uncommon for his age. He began his career with the likes of Chicago Pete (Jr. Parker, Buddy Guy, Jr. Wells, Jimmy Dawkins, Albert Collins, Lazy Lester) and others such as Douglas Watson (the son of Muddy Waters’ piano player, Lovie Lee) at the remarkably young age of 15. Hailing from a musical family in London, ON, Canada, Chris’ mother, Linda, was a singer who had members of The Band and Janis Joplin's band sitting in at her gigs. Through her record collection, Chris was introduced to Lightnin' Hopkins, B.B. King, John Lee Hooker, Sonny Boy Williamson, and many others, inspiring him to begin a musical career of his own. He quickly became known locally as a guitar prodigy.

After moving to Tampa Bay The Kid has immersed himself into the Soul and Blues scene and has performed with the best that Tampa Bay has to offer (Betty Fox, Damon Fowler, TC Carr, Chuck Riley, Matt Walker, Vinnie Seplesky, Sam Farmer, Aaron Fowler, Backtrack Blues Band, Sarasota Slim, just to name a few). When The Kid struts out on his own you never know who may show up with him. Always a great show!
