Lori and husband, Joe King call Iowa home, located in the upper Midwest, the King's debuted their band at the Bluegrass Music Association of Iowa 2nd Annual Des Moines Area Festival in February 2014. The band is well known for their traditional sounds and hard driving instrumentals, paired with midwestern determination and grit. Over the last seven years, the band has loved every festival performance, special event, and the opportunity to create and release two albums (and working on the next one!) Recently, they signed with Turnberry Records and plan to release their latest effort in the spring of 2021. Founding singer-bassist, Lori King describes how her bandmates showcase their personality along with their talent in each performance. "Joe's guitar and lead vocals are a direct extension of his personality, he becomes part of each song. While you need to rosin up the bow, and call out the Fire Department, when Kyle Murphy plays the fiddle! It can only be described as pure fire and passion. Our energetic banjo player, Mark Hargrove and his harmony vocals are the perfect pairing for these guys and Kevin Amburgey's rhythmic chop, perfect leads and tight harmonies are second to none and really round out the band. As for me, I do what I do best and lead the effort onstage and off," explained King. The band is comprised of songwriters, arrangers, and multi-instrumentalists which gives them a wealth of originals to choose from - hard-driving numbers, heartwarming gospels, sing-along country grass, and the unexpected contemporary bluegrass compositions alike. Lori believes that she and Junction 63 have forged a strong connection with their audience by being authentic on and off stage and that is a true testament to being the best bluegrass band in the Midwest!
