"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]
