The Duke and The King Rock Union Hall

Rock music's greatest live performer returned to the stage last night at Union Hall in Brooklyn, New York
The Simone Felice fronted Duke and the King treated fans to a night of funky beats, majestic rock power, and beautiful poetry.
The setlist was comprised of new songs from the soon to be released lp Nothing Gold Can Stay, and many of Simone Felice songs from the Felice Brothers catalog. Robert Chicken Burke (king), provided delicious beats all night, particularly the Charlie Watts channeled Radio Song, and very soulful vocals. Highlights were a new number American Song dedicated to Ian Felice and The Devil is Real.
