Kudzu Kings are a highly energetic and entertaining musical outfit from Oxford, MS. Their sound is a unique blend of country, bluegrass, improvisational rock & roll, and humor that appeals to many: young, old and in between.

Together over 20 years, the band has achieved legendary status and, in their years on the road, gained a strong foothold in the Southeast, headlining many of the prominent music venues -  in addition to a number of successful tours of the US and Canada. They have shared the stage several times with Widespread Panic (with whom Kudzu member George McConnell joined in 2002) as well as with many other artists, including Bob Weir and Rob Wasserman, Leftover Salmon, Jimmie Dale Gilmore, Junior Brown -  and more recently with Chris Stapleton and Old Crow Medicine Show - just to name a few. Kudzu Kings have also welcomed guest musicians in the past to collaborate and sometimes sit in for several shows for absent members including Chris Etheridge (Flying Burrito Brothers, Gram Parsons, Willie Nelson), Bucky Baxter (pedal steel and guitar w/ Bob Dylan, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos), John "Jojo" Hermann (Widespread Panic), Cody Dickinson (North Mississippi All-Stars), and Tony Furtado.

Their debut CD was recorded with Grammy Award winning producer Jim Gaines (Santana, Stevie Ray Vaughan & Double Trouble, Steve Miller Band) at the helm. The most recent release, Y2Kow, was co-produced by the band and Jeffrey Reed, one of the two men behind the critically acclaimed Black Dog Records, and protégé to both Gaines and Jim Dickinson.

The group is currently working on the next batch of songs for their third release, and many of the members maintain
