Treefort Bands Pay Tribute to "King of the Road"

Posted By on Mon, Mar 25, 2013 at 12:00 PM

Treefort was a celebration of music representing the home and away teams. And to pay tribute to all the bands on the road to perform for Boise, we hit the streets with our trusty video camera to record as many of them as possible performing one of Boise's most iconic songs: "King of the Road," which folk legend Roger Miller wrote while staying in the Idanha Hotel.

BW got performances from bands like Rose Windows, Death Songs and Delicate Steve, whose surrealist Casiotone version of the song was truly amazing.

Then we mashed all those performances up into one cut of the song.

Check it out below.
