Boogie Band play all the 70s music you want to hear at your party or corporate event. The original King Earl Band was created by Paul King and Colin Earl, both founder members of Mungo Jerry. Paul Malcolm King (born 9 January 1948, Dagenham, Essex, England). Paul is an English musician who was a member of Mungo Jerry between 1970 and 1972. In 1996 Paul retired from the band and Dave Peabody joined to replace Paul. Les Calvert also joined (Alexis Korner, Mike Kooper) around the same time.
In late 2005 John Coghlan (Status Quo, Diesel) joined Boogie Band and added a driving beat which has transformed the band into its current shape. The King Earl Boogie is a spectacular fusion of some of the best musicians in the UK today.
He contributed occasional lead vocals and played acoustic guitar (6 and 12 string), banjo, harmonica, kazoo and jug. His songs on the first Mungo Jerry album and on the early maxi-singles were generally more folksy and lighter in style than those of group leader Ray Dorset.
He was frustrated when his own songs were constantly rejected for subsequent albums. Their album Trouble at Mill, produced by Dave Cousins of Strawbs, was well reviewed. A single “Plastic Jesus” was banned by the BBC on grounds of blasphemy. The group disbanded a few months later and Lambert later joined Strawbs. (Wikipedia)
