Royal Ten


King of the World is celebrating its 10th anniversary and the gentlemen are hitting it big with a new CD (February 2022), a "Royal Ten" release tour and a one-off show with special guests in the spring of 2022. After forming in 2012, the label "supergroup" was quickly assigned to the band due to the rich musical history of the band members (Snowy White, Matt Schofield and Cuby & The Blizzards among others). Now, ten years later, King of the World is a band that still lives up to this monniker and has lost nothing in energy, drive and creativity. From the beginning with Erwin Java and Fokke de Jong to the current line-up with Belgian guitar virtuoso Stef Delbaere and drummer/vocalist Marlon Pichel, King of the World has always stood for top quality roots rhythm & blues.

The band has built up a solid reputation, both in the studio and on stage. The previous five albums received nothing but rave reviews and the many shows at home and abroad at venues such as the North Sea Jazz Festival, Ribs 'n Blues, Vienna Spring Blues Festival, Paradiso and other Dutch pop temples, have carved the rock-solid live reputation in stone. Besides recognition from the public, the band has also received many Blues Awards (including best keyboardist, best drummer, best bassist (3x), best guitarist and best band). Stef Delbaere is considered by Guitarist Magazine to be one of the best blues/rock guitarists in the Benelux. King of the World was repeatedly seen and heard in TV and radio shows including Vrije Geluiden (TV), Pauw en Witteman (TV, 2x), Derksen on the Road (TV), Jongens van het Noorden (TV), Spijkers met Koppen (radio) and TROS-music cafe (radio). On the anniversary CD 'Royal Ten' King of the World shows itself an inspired and energetic band with all elf-penned material , written in the covid-stricken months. The band members were forced to stay at home and processed this together, as soon as they were allowed to again, into these new songs, which are drenched in urgency. The tracks on this CD go from modest, intense and personal to exuberant and powerful. The need to make music together is so strong that the songs pop out of your speakers. The material that Ruud, Govert, Stef and Marlon have written in this difficult period without shows belongs to the best that King of the World has produced in its 10-year existence.
