London, Ontario's Texas King came to CMW to rock. A seemingly simple mission that so many bands embark on but so few are truly successful at. The success seemed easy for Texas King as they sweated out a set of really good, high-power blues-rock with classic riffs mixed in with abundant energy and attitude.

It was power pop and high-energy rock at its finest. I was thinking I forgot the classic rockers whose influences were on display like Eddie Money, Cheap Trick, Billy Squire and Bruce Springsteen when Texas King whipped out their cover of The Boss' "Dancing in the Dark". Nice!

Go see these guys. Really. You won't regret it.

"Boomerang"

"Mary"

"Come Find Me"

"All We Are"
