Grand Rapids Rocks- King Crabapple
I love Grand Rapids and all it has to offer with local music, so I decided why not feature local bands here on wgrd.com! Today's featured King Crabapple , they answered a few questions for me below! Check them out, and if you're in a local band who wants to be featured fill out this form. I don’t just feature anyone, so don’t suck and you’ll get the Jackie stamp of approval ;) Find me on facebook too, to follow all your favorite local bands, and GRD news by clicking HERE

How would you describe your music to someone?
King Crabapple has cultured a reputation as one formiddable monarch. Weilding fierce lyrics and soaring vocals, this six-headed giant combines funk and hip-hop into something ferocious. Thunderous without sacrificing the groove, they rock the crown cocked to the side, and throw down hard for all the realm.
