Band/Artist Name & Pronunciation: King Leisure
Recommended if you like: The National, The Strokes, Explosions in the Sky
Story behind your band/artist name: The name 'King Leisure' is a commentary on the idea perpetuated now that there's one 'best way' to spend your downtime. People are constantly telling you that you HAVE to watch a show; this idea that one leisure activity is superior to another. As a connection to the past too King Leisure jokes that royal free time was somehow higher status, though as we all know: fun is fun.
Band Members: David (Bass, Vocals) Andrew (Guitar, Vocals) Chris (Guitar) Jake (Drums)
What part of the DC region is the artist tied to and how? Where is the artist's current home base if not DC : We are all from the DC and Maryland Area. Members grew up in different parts of Montgomery County and were raised on a steady diet of going to see shows in D.C. Currently are spread out across the DMV with members calling Virginia, Maryland, and Metropolitan DC home.
At least 3 interesting/entertaining facts about the band related to persons/events in Washington DC area:-Members have performed at the Kennedy Center, Merriweather Post Pavilion, and 930 Club, yet are most excited for an upcoming DC9 Show March 15th ( why live in the past?)
-Guitarist Chris and Vocalist/Founding Member David met as college roommates at University of Maryland Baltimore-County ( big commuter and research university prominent in the D.C/MD area)
- Band Members include an Active CPA in the State of Virginia, A GW Law Student and Future Securities Lawyer,an IT and Security Analyst, and a full-time Psychology and Accounting student at American University. Though we're not all on the same path through music and live performance we continue to speak the same language and share common goals.
