Bluegrass Addiction has been entertaining across the Midwest since 1991.  This high-energy band has a unique blend of harmony, lots of stage personality, and has the ability to entertain diverse crowds.  From a hard-driving, traditional bluegrass song to a contemporary, strong ballad-- their performances will keep you on the edge of your seat.  Bluegrass Addiction has released ten recording projects since its inception.  In 2006 the band released the title cut "Blue In My Bluegrass" on Prime Cuts of Bluegrass that was sent to hundreds of radio stations and talent buyers across the world.  Most recently the band released its latest project "Dark Shadows" featuring the talents of Lori King on lead and harmony vocals, Joe King on guitar and vocals, and Bill Cross playing banjo, mandolin, and dobro.  This project also features Mark Vaccaro on fiddle. 

 

Lori King--  Lori plays bass and is the lead vocalist for the band. Lori's passion and desire to play and sing shines in every stage performance.  Her voice is strong but sweet and she has a way of drawing the audience in... She plays and sings with a conviction that will melt your heart in a slow ballad or make you smile in a hard-driving bluegrass tune.  Lori is actively pursuing her musical goals performing with the band, songwriting, using her knowledge and experience to book other bluegrass acts with JLK Music, and is the Executive Director for the Bluegrass Music Association of Iowa.  Lori attributes her start into bluegrass to Joe her husband, best friend, and guitar player for the group.

Joe King--  Joe has been playing guitar since he was 5.  His guitar playing influence's were that of Tony Rice and Vince Gill.  His style is unique, his rhythm is solid, and his flat-picking is outstanding.  Joe has recently written several bluegrass songs that have become fan favorites and requests.   Joe  indicates his love of music and guitar-picking came mostly from his grandfather, who encouraged him to play and would be very proud of his accomplishments.  He also plays mandolin, banjo, and bass and even attempts to play a tune or two on the fiddle.  Joe is a teacher's associate at the Davis County School District and enjoys his time off to play music.

Lori and Joe provide quality entertainment at venues across the Midwest and bring with them the talents of other great musicians....

Currently performing with the group are:

Kevin Lewis--  Kevin will be playing fiddle with the group but is an accomplished guitarist as well as other instruments.  He sings lead and tenor vocals and is able to make a very realistic train whistle.  You wont want to miss this during our show.  Kevin is from Leadwood, MO and is a firefighter. 

We would also like to welcome on Banjo:

Jeremy Boling--  NUFF SAID!!
