California Kings play country music for outlaws and young old-timers. Based in Los Angeles, the band received notariety around 2011 playing small time gigs for big time country fans around the east side. After a few personnel changes, the band finally arrived at what you see in the photo on this page: Adam “California King” Hobbs (formerly of Boyjazz) playing bass and singing, Alex Pauley (also of Boyjazz) playing guitar and singing, Shane O’Brien playing someone else’s drum kit as he had to sell his to move here from Nashville, and Uli Sinn on pedal steel & Dobro and talking in an Austrian accent.
They’re great at making you sing along. Whether it’s their own twangy tune or one that we’ve all heard before, their music is of the type that makes it hard to tell the difference. They’ve shared the stage with the likes of Shooter Jennings, Ted Russell Kamp and RT & The 44s and look forward to being the song that you drink, cuss and pick up on cowboys and cowgirls to on any old night of the week.
