King Bee is a seven piece (sometimes eight) funk band based in Newcastle upon Tyne. Formed in 2011 by mates Dave Wilde (sax flute and vocals) and Chris Jelly (vibraphone) the band writes all its own material. The current line-up has changed little over the years, and as a result created its own extremely tight distinctive, sometimes psychedelic, but always phat funk driven sound.
Comprising musicians who have many years experience playing writing and recording successfully in the UK Europe and Australia before coming together to establish King Bee.
