In 2010, Winslow-King formed a four-piece made up of singer/washboard-player Esther Rose, bassist Cassidy Holden, trumpet/piano/bass-drummer Ben Polcer. The band combines their influences into a jubilant medley of gritty lyrics, blended vocal harmonies, soloing slide guitar flurries, and chain gang call and response vocals, backed by percussive upright bass and washboard accompaniment. 

To date, Luke Winslow-King & the band have toured festivals, jazz halls, dive bar, listening rooms, barns, theatres, and arenas across the US and Europe; sharing the stage with such legends as: Taj Mahal, John Anderson, Cheick Hamala Diabete, Jack White, Robert Earl Keen, Tower of Power, Rebirth Brass Band, and Chris Thile.
