Its a Hot summer!!! 

Wow! What a summer its been so far! We've played so many great places and met so many new friends. Started the latest run in New London, MN at Goat Ridge Brewing June 30th, played an opening set for Front Country at the Cedar Cultural Center in Minneapolis on July 3rd and then out to Greenwood,WI for their 4th of July bash. Great times!!! And lotsa great shows ahead so check our calendar here and follow us on Facebook so you don't miss out. Love to all and thanks so much for being the best friends and fans.


Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures might be tough to bracket but they sure are easy to enjoy. A little bit blues, a little bit bluegrass, a little bit rock, and a little bit kitchen sink, a style of music that some fans have come to call “blues-grass”. You'll hear some great original songs inspired by the styles of Shane McGowan, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, and Bill Monroe. With a rough and tumble mix of guitar, banjo, mandolin, bass, washboard, snare drum, and accordion.

Need a dose of good times? Bernie King and the Guilty Pleasures are what the doctor orders. 
Bernie King – singing, guitar, harmonica, songwriting
John Kurtis Dehn – guitar, mandolin, banjo, singing
Julie King – percussion, accordion
Bradley Smith - bass
