Band History:
In 2003 singer Chris Reifenstein, guitarist Rick Reifenstein, bassist Gregg LaFever and drummer Brian Cadamore were frustrated with the modern hard rock scene. Acting upon Chris's suggestion the group changed their name and explored their rock-n-roll roots. Combining influences like Mike Ness, Brian Setzer, Johnny Cash and the Ventures, they formed the Hard Luck Kings.
As one of the hot new bands in Pittsburgh, the Hard Luck Kings have been gaining fans in local bars, and clubs with their roots based rock-n-roll.

The Hard Luck Kings high-energy shows and toe tapping music has brought many people to their feet to dance. Their success on stage is second only by the achievements of their recordings.

Your influences?
