Kings of Crownsville 8PM & 10PM


Annapolis-based act Kings of Crownsville is an eclectic band with a New Orleans flavor. Think Louis Armstrong meets Steely Dan. The brainchild of Mississippi-born guitarist/singer/songwriter Steve Johnson, the Kings play a rollicking, entertaining set that stirs Jazz, Americana, and Blues into the mix. Their signature horn section transports listeners to the streets of the Big Easy, while they also add precise three- and four-part vocal harmonies to their musical gumbo.

In its present form since 2012, this accessible band of experienced musicians performs mainly Johnson’s witty original music as well as a few well-chosen standards and covers, all with a hint of Louisiana spice.

“Sweltering mélange of jazz, blues, and even country … music as good as this can leave some speechless.”
