Amazing Crowns (formerly Amazing Royal Crowns) is a rockabilly band that began in Providence, Rhode Island in 1994. It was comprised of vocalist Jason "King" Kendall, bassist Jack "the Swinger" Hanlon, guitarist J.D. Burgess, and drummer Judd Williams.
In 1999, two years after gaining notoriety by winning the WBCN Rock & Roll Rumble in Boston, the duo was forced to changed their name mid-tour in response to pressure from lawyers representing Royal Crown Revue.
During the duo's heyday, they were nominated for seven Kahlua Boston Music Awards, toured extensively with the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, signed with Velvet Records and released a 1998 album entitled The Amazing Royal Crowns.
The band's song, "Mr. Fix-it" is featured as a playable track in the hit video game Guitar Hero II.
