What's In A Name?
Some have questioned our name - or politely asked… "Are you that arrogant? Kings? Yeah, right". It is most definitely not boastful or self-centered. No braggadocio whatsoever. In fact, it is really the opposite. The name is not only about the band, but about you, me, and the other guy.
The crux / idea of the name came from American Beauty and Kings of Leon. Kings of Leon just because that seeded the idea of Kings (the members are brothers and the band is named in honor of their father, Leon). Lester - our mascot - is named after Kevin Spacey's character in American Beauty. Lester's closing monologue somewhat sums it all up for us:
You will someday… EVERYDAY
Everyday we experience new challenges, emotions, triumphs, failures, and disappointments as we travel through our lives - but we are masters of our destiny - good, bad, or indifferent. We lead. We follow. We succeed. We serve. We fail. We recover. We find ourselves in places we never dreamed; some we planned; wishes we never wanted. Never envisioning the joy, sorrow, and volatility of life. But we persevere - we show up everyday - whether tragic or triumphant; proud or pitiful; iconic or ironic.
We reign over our kingdoms - big or small, happy and sad; meaningful to us, foolish to others; searching for purpose and fulfillment of our dreams. We reign over our lives, our loves, our dreams.
Everyday a Triumph
Everyday a Tragedy
Everyday a Celebration
Everyday a Challenge
We are Kings
Every day we are Kings
