"Hard-driving, bluesy and groovy is how The Blacktop Kings describe their music. The group consists of Cole Harris (lead vocals/lead guitar), Jeff “Mitch” Mitchell (lead guitar), Kevin Rand (bass), Dave Merrill (lead vocals/keys) and Chris Rehorst (drums). The group came together a decade ago and has been a success locally. They take pride in performing in Wisconsin, especially in the Milwaukee area. The band has ties to a long list of local groups."Mitchel Writt - Urban Milwaukee [Band of the Week - Feb 2016]

"If you haven’t seen the Blacktop Kings, do yourself a favor in 2020. These guys have unbelievable talent, and hands-down the best local band I’ve heard to date. It may sound like an exaggeration, but I felt honored to be able to experience this at the saloon on Calhoun on Saturday night. Many of my friends were there, and felt the same way. You guys are destined for great things, and I wish you the best of luck in 2020!￼￼￼￼! ...And by the way, we have your majesty CD, and have played it so much it’s almost worn out..." - Debi Whitaker 12-17-19
