Join us for free live music brought to you by BJ Stricker and The Kings!
Singer-songwriter BJ Stricker and his band The Kings’ music comes in the form of dynamic contrast in sound. Drawing from influences from folk and rock to blues and jazz fusion, the Dallas musician’s infectious tunes are derived from the very human struggles.
From Thom Yorke to Neil Young, Amos Lee to his biggest inspiration, Dave Matthews, Stricker’s sound and songwriting is eclectic and melodious. With musical musings coming at unexpected moments in life, his midnight melodies are faceted to make the listener feel a specific way. “I just need one really good line to start a ripple effect for the rest of the song,” he says, “then I allow the story and song to write itself.”
In addition to Stricker, “The Kings” include Ryan Dahir (sax), Connor Pickle (drums), David Wilson (guitar) and Patrick Smith (bass). Each raising the caliber of this Dallas musicianship, creating a sound unique to the Big D.
