The Cartoon Kings
The Cartoon Kings perform mainly in the Midlands area and like most bands offer a large selection of songs by original artists. However The Kings also offer the choice of either electric or acoustic shows making them ideal for ANY private function festival or corporate event. They can cater for weddings, parties, special occasions and anything else. Oozing with personality and style the Cartoon Kings can supply whatever you’re looking for!

Each band member has many years of experience at playing live so you can expect a professional show with up to 2 hours of live music which still maintains a raw energetic feeling. They can provide a three piece line up if needed for smaller venues. The Kings will play music via a laptop between sets which is included in the price! Or provide a separate DJ for an extra fee.

The Cartoon Kings' repertoire ranges from Oasis to Bruno Mars, Jet to The Beatles. There is a wide and versatile selection in the rock/pop genre as well as guaranteed 'dance-floor' classics like Make Me Smile I’m a Believer and Brown-Eyed Girl with up to date music from artists such as Pharrell Williams, Bruno Mars and John Newman completing the play list.

Based around a 5-piece line-up the band are
Mat Dale (vocals/guitar)
Becky Corneby (vocals)
Chris Watt (bass and vocals)
Wes Fife (drums)
Ken Hughes (piano)
