Escalator Kings

July 21, 2018 17:45 @ Key Stage 1

Escalator Kings are back again for the third year running! They must be doing something right (or paying the right people)…


About Escalator Kings

Escalator Kings are a four-piece 'band' from Farnsfield, Southwell and Newark. They are aged between fairly young and not too old and enjoy long walks in the park and good food with friends. They have varying amounts of hair.

Previous performances have been generally non-fatal and most people leave with only mild trauma. Reduced-price t-shirts are available to victims audience members who find that they are unable to leave after listening to Escalator Kings for longer than the recommended safe limit of twelve seconds.

"Great for your health, this is the only band that has actually made me fitter! I run as fast as I can in the opposite direction whenever I hear them."
- Mrs Hilda Longbottom, Didbury

The Escalator Kings sound is often described as a cross between Bruce Springsteen being eaten by a dishwasher and a blues orchestra falling out of a thirty-storey window. Expect to hear some wonderful, professionally-performed music both before and after the Escalator Kings' set.

"Excellent, in the same way that pancakes make good pets."
- A bewildered audience member

"I came with no idea what to expect. I left with no idea who I was."
- John Doe
