PULLMAN, Wash. — The Fabulous Kingpins will rock the Palouse during a Fourth of July celebration from 7-10 p.m. in Sunnyside Park. The event is free and open to the public.
The Kingpins have been entertaining audiences across the Northwest for more than 18 years. “We just really enjoy putting on a great show,” said Cliff Miller, lead vocals and saxophone, “ and that enjoyment becomes infectious with our audience.”
Guest performers include the vocal group Hot Flashes, a horn section called G-men and Travis Hasko-Young, a 15-year-old guitarist from Moscow will perform with the Kingpins.
Concertgoers can participate in a hula-hoop contest or join in a hand jive. “People rarely have time to sit at one of our shows,” Miller said. The group’s musical repertoire ranges from Del Shannon’s “Runaway” to “What I Like About You” by the Romantics.
Miller and cofounder Dale Eddie, drums, have watched the band become a favorite at community events and car shows. The six-person band features colorful costumes, state-of-the-art sound and lighting, a Harley Davidson, two eight-foot bowling pins and a variety of rock ‘n’ roll favorites from the past five decades.
Band members include Jimmy Slick on lead guitar; Randy Reis, bass; Suzanne Fox, vocals; and Mr. Wild Bill on keyboard.
