The Cobalt Rhythm Kings are one of Connecticut’s longest-running blues bands and have been one of its leading bands for more than two decades. They are steeped in the jazzy jump blues of Louis Jordan, Big Joe Turner and Wynonie Harris; the cool, raging West Coast blues of William Clark, Rod Piazza and James Harman, and the hard-edged Chicago blues of Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon, Junior Wells, Freddie King and Otis Rush, to name a few.
Formed in 1996 – with two Chicago natives on vocals — The Kings have played everywhere from New York’s premier blues club, Chicago B.L.U.E.S., to the New Haven Jazz Festival to Black-Eyed Sally’s in Hartford. The band debuted on the national stage on Oct. 8, 2005 at the the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, Arkansas. They’ve opened for the late blues diva Etta James and Son Seals on the New Haven Green, the late Johnny Winter at Toad’s Place, CT’s premier music club, and many others over the years.
