Thank you for feeding our addiction. We’re plugged in, tuned up, and have a muse that needs to be fed. We’ve been doing this for as many years as we can remember, music has taken up places we’ve never thought we would go, and we look forward to following where it flows. After living the music through all these years, and all these stages, living a dream throughout the States, we’re ecstatic to be here, for this moment, for this show, this song.

One of the last of the analog kids, Michael Kranicke, founder of Voodoo Kings, grew up at a time when listening to music meant vinyl or the radio; feeding on rock’n’roll and blues that had harmony and melody, honing songwriting skills and leading bands as he learned guitar.

Breathing this music with hundreds of shows, the Voodoo Kings have experienced many wonderful moments, applause, laughter, smiles, and critical praise.

The single “When I See Her” off of Voodoo Kings’ American Lights record was featured in the movie Deal starring Burt Reynolds and distributed by MGM.

Two songs off the record Mileage, “It’s All Right” and “Strong Will Survive” have been licensed to Canadian television series Dark Rising – Warrior of Worlds, spreading the word about Voodoo Kings.

The band recently signed a licensing agreement with Atrium Music in Los Angeles.

“It’s all about the song and stripping down the music and getting down to rock’n’roll,” says Michael.

With the newest release, Faith & Whiskey, the Voodoo Kings demonstrate their unique take on consummate rock’n’roll song. From the Beatles-esque opener of “Eyes on You,” to the roots-laden sound of “Lonely Street,” the band demonstrates their effective blend of Rock Americana.

The Voodoo Kings, with their guitar-driven lineup and sustained by their uncompromising passion for the song, the first chord, the girls, and for the rush, invite you on their musical journey. Come join the adventure.

Voodoo Kings Through the Years…

“American pop rock woven with a country twang produces a good aroma on the Voodoo Kings release Mileage… A true taste of the Americana musical pie.”

“Their album American Lights is a prime example of how the Voodoo Kings have become a midwestern music staple.”

“The band electrified the stage with its unique “hot” mesh of rockin’ combination of punk/soul/glam/retro guitar riffs and 4-part harmonies that melted the mic.”
