The Kingston Trio is described as "the most envied, the most imitated, and the most successful singing group, folk or otherwise, in all show business" and "the undisputed kings of the folk singing rage by every yardstick”. They rose to international popularity, fueled by unprecedented record sales, and helped to alter the direction of popular music in the U.S.
The Lion Sons are the closest thing to the original Kingston Trio that exists today. You bear witness to the energy, charisma, vocal power and acoustic domination that transports you to a time when The Kingston Trio was the band everyone emulated, loved and appreciated for the simplicity and purity of their sound.
Josh Reynolds and Mike Marvin are the son and nephew/adopted son of Kingston Trio original Nick Reynolds. They grew up in the same household spending much of their time accompanied by their childhood friend Tim Gorelangton; whose natural abundant musical talent and vocal tenacity was quickly identified by the famous Trio members. This was a musical home, an environment that was frequented by the biggest names in show business.
Josh, Mike and Tim were inspired by, motivated by and intentionally or not, mentored by affiliation each time a famous performer sat down in their living room, picked up a guitar or banjo and sang a song. There was nothing more natural than playing the music that was around them. It took quite a few years before they were able to duplicate the sound that had won the hearts of the world.
If you were lucky enough to have seen and heard the original Kingston Trio in the 50s and 60s, come now, and relive the cultural sensation that represents the greatest moment of Déjà-vu that can come your way for the price of a concert ticket. The Lion Sons.
