About the SofaKings.

Our line-up and musical influences.

The SofaKings are a 5-piece covers band, based in Blackpool, UK. Our line up consists of Vocals/Rhythm guitar, Lead guitar, Bass, Keyboards and Drums. We aim to play a fairly broad range of slightly ‘left field’ covers – the kind you wouldn’t necessarily expect but would definitely recognise. Covers of artists ranging from Echo & The Bunnymen to Funboy Three and to The Pixies are countered by more familiar tunes from Van Morrison and Johnny Cash in a fairly eclectic mix often with a largely 80s slant.
