- The band creates mostly new material based on old-time influences, powered by the rhythm of a pre-war suitcase: percussionist Wild Zucchini Bill is a long-standing member of award-winning international bin-bashing sensations Stomp.
- In June 2016, King Courgette released their second album entitled King Courgette. Mike Harding played two tracks on his Folk Show and called them "terrific" and "jolly good stuff." The album has been played on podcasts and radio shows across the world, including four plays closer to home on BBC Radio.
- As well as playing gigs and festivals across the country (Beverley, Cornucopia, Poppleton and Dent among others in 2016), King Courgette have opened for acts including Abigail Washburn, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Oh My Darling and Blackbeard's Tea Party.
- All About Jazz Magazine referred to them as "wildly diverse" "rebellious" and "huge fun" while Yorkmix said simply: "Wherever they play, there's a party going on."
