“These guys ooze talent, their music is an addictive progressive pop rock with killer hooks, smart lyrics and smooth harmonies.”
-Jonathan Hockberg, Finger Lakes Music Press
"Sounds Like: The best jam band from your college days with a Reggae-soaked tinge. A longtime local favorite, The Small Kings have truly hit their technical stride in the last few years. Expect some catchy, danceable tunes with an occasional foray into extremely spacey passages that will leave you slack-jawed."
The Small Kings is an Ithaca-based rock, jam, and funk band with reggae roots, soaring harmonies, and instrumental fireworks. The band has played in and around the Central New York area for over 18 years and has developed a loyal following. Featuring Jeff McCaffrey (guitar, vocals), Frank Raponi (guitar, harmonica, vocals), Mike Levy (bass, vocals), and Joel Blizzard (drums).
