is a full-tilt, acid blues collective comprised of Boston-based musicians. Their unique repertoire includes originals and re-interpreted 60s, 70s, and 80s covers from Billie Holiday, Miles Davis, Joe Zawinul, Charles Mingus, B.B.

Taking the road less traveled, they discover and share off-the-beaten songs and instrumentals and fuse them into their own original works. They dare to be risk-takers on stage, digging deep into the vaults of blues/jazz antiquity. The result is an effortless take-no-prisoners-approach that wittingly captures the audience's hearts.
The L&M Rhythm Kings are an original band playing blues, R&B, and roots oriented music. The band is made up of veteran musicians with a great deal of experience playing roots, rhythm, and blues and features: Larry Lusignan on lead vocals and guitar, Mike "Squid" Rush bass guitar & background vocals, Mark Longo lead vocals & keyboards, and Glenn Rogers on drums and background vocals all four bringing special talent, expression, and above all, professionalism to every performance. When playing tight improvised music, it helps when the band can read each other’s minds - they do that.
