The CD was favourably reviewed in the April 2019 issue of Blues Matters magazine and made the top 40 of the Independent Blues Broadcasting Association chart.



“Smokin’ hot yet cool as ice. King of Clubs is a “must have” album for anyone who really appreciates “the Blues” played as it should be. 10/10″
Paul Winn, award-nominated Blues DJ “The Blues Hour” (Tempo FM/Hanks Blues Radio/Radio Stitch)


“Smokey’s King Shufflers album, King Of Clubs, has achieved the unusual feat of making a covers album sound original. They have taken each song and made it their own. And it makes your legs want to go partying, even if you don’t. This is feel-good music of the highest order.”
John Brown, Browns Blues and Boogie, Lionheart Radio


“My first impression was ‘Not another album of Blues covers!’ but, after listening to it, I was amazed at the quality of the musicianship and the variation they brought to some classic tracks. Excellent blues harp, guitar and rhythm section with a real feeling of contentment and fun in their playing. Got to get to see these guys play live one day! The album definitely gets top marks from me.”
Stephen Hunt, Blues-Rock DJ on Crossfire Radio
