Funky Kings was a band from Los Angeles, California, that released one self-titled album: Funky Kings, released on Arista Records in 1976.
The band's sound has been described as 'early Eagles'.
Personnel: Jules Shear, Jack Tempchin, Richard Stekol, Greg Leisz (all vocals/guitar), Bill Bodine (bass/vocals) and Frank Cotinola (drums).
As their eponymous début album failed to yield any commercial success, Funky Kings split up. Jules Shear moved on to form Jules and The Polar Bears.
