– Mark Gamsjager and the Lustre Kings play rock and roll the right way. The powerhouse combo has wowed crowds at Manhattan’s Rodeo Bar, Seattle’s Tractor Tavern and all points in-between, performing over 150 dates annually and appearing regularly at major festivals. And they’ve done it with uncommon fervor, commitment and flair. The Gretsch-toting Gamsjager draws from a deeper well than most roots rock acts, giving his music a breadth and depth while still keeping the place hopping and the dance floor filled.

“The Lustre Kings will introduce you to doo-wop and wild rock’n’roll, and then bring you back to rockabilly.” Their music is a travelogue of great American rock and roll, with tunes from legends like Gene Vincent and Ronnie Self, as well as from Commander Cody’s Billy C. Farlow and the Los Straitjackets’ guitar strangler, Eddie Angel. “While most bands seem to be content with just recreating the sound of classic records from years ago, the Lustre Kings have captured the spirit of that era, tapping into what made those records and artists so great in the first place.”
