Coal Palace Kings

Style: Mudflaphonkytonkcountrypunk, Alt-country, Americana
Formed/Began performing: 1996
Stomping grounds:  Upstate (Albany) NY

Rootsy rock and roll that's got equal parts Hank and Crank.
"This is rock as it should be: loud, proud and with beer on its breath. Coal
Palace Kings describe their stuff as 'the heaviest, bone-crunching, eye-gouging,
Henley-hating music in the region' and that about covers it. If you need a little more
detail, just imagine Hank Williams fronting Husker Du and you'll be right on target." -
Michael Eck, Times Union
