Hank Leonhardt and the Kingpins
August 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:30 pm
The Kingpins are a hard-hitting fun-loving band of veteran musicians, they play classic R&B from the ‘50s and ‘60s (plus a few original songs penned within the idiom). Fronted by the lion-voiced Hank Lionhart and powered by a dynamic horn and rhythm section, these guys are guaranteed to bounce the audience out of their seats and onto the dance floor.
A mainstay in Vancouver’s pubs and clubs from 2000 till 2005 the Kingpins have released 2 Cds: Knockin’ ‘Em Down in ’01 and This Road in ’05. After a hiatus of over 14 years Hank has reunited with original members Wayne Kozak (sax), Steve Cross (guitar/vocals) and Jack Lavin (bass/vocals) when the four of them found that they were neighbours, all having relocated to Victoria BC. Joined by Ross Hall (drums), Steve Ranta (keys) and Paul Wainwright (sax), this group will be sure to surprise, delight and entertain the most discerning R&B fans! The Kingpins are back!
