Defying all odds, logic, and better judgment, KICK turns 21 years old this week. Among other things, that means the actual band can now drink legally. We will be loudly celebrating this random event by taking the band out on the town in the town of its birth (way back in the 1990s) for an intimate gathering at The Main Pub - Grille, Taps, Music this Saturday night and we'd love to have you by. ...

What a great time at Twin River Casino last night. The crew at Lighthouse Bar are truly second to none. Thanks to everyone who came out and partied with us. We hope to get to rock with you again soon.

KICK cleans up pretty nicely, too. And they know how to throw a party. From white-tie weddings to pig roasts, click here to ensure everyone has a great time at your next event.

KICK was conceived strictly for fun, as a side project for its members’ well-established original bands. But they quickly earned a reputation as “easily the top show band in New England…live, they actually look, perform, and sound better than a lot of the original artists” (Music News Express) and “the most professional modern rock cover band I’ve ever seen. Masterful.” (Hartford Advocate). In national auditions, MTV Cover Wars called KICK “Perfect” and VH1’s Ultimate Cover Band Challenge concurred they are “an outstanding band.”

Today, KICK is widely regarded as one of the most talented, high-energy and diverse rockshows in North America. The band’s recent tour took them from Madison Square Garden (where they performed before two New York Rangers’ Stanley Cup Playoff games) to 4th of July on Block Island, RI to two-night stands at the Resorts Casino on the Boardwalk in Atlantic City, NJ; Lake George, NY; and Quincy Marketplace in Boston, MA. The tour wrapped with an unprecedented four-night residency at the legendary Flamingo Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip.

KICK’s professionalism and the diversity of their repertoire has enabled them to become a fixture at both of the two largest casinos in the world – Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, where they have performed in residence at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville for several years – as well as at numerous college festivals, corporate events, amusement parks, and private parties and weddings. They have even performed at arenas and stadiums including Gillette Stadium, Bushnell Memorial Auditorium, the Oakdale Theater, Yale Bowl, Toad’s Place, Riverfront Amphitheater, Fairfield Coliseum, Six Flags, and UConn’s Rentschler Stadium (where they performed before every Huskies football game for five seasons) while supporting acts as varied as international 80s pop icons Duran Duran and modern rock legends Staind (not to mention ska kings Reel Big Fish, rap icon Biz Markie, grunge stars Filter, and a variety of other major label acts too numerous to mention).

From Taylor Swift to Metallica, the band guarantees their audience members will go home having heard at least one song they like. If not several dozen.

Perhaps most important, KICK has been civic-minded since its inception, performing at charity events for the Special Olympics, Relay for Life, We Are the Children, Dream Ride, American Cancer Society, Make a Wish Foundation, the Michael J. Fox Foundation, Newtown United, Nutmeg State Games, and the Brian A. Aselton Memorial Fund among several others. The group has become a bona fide family favorite at town park and municipal shows throughout the Northeast, and the band is a proud member of the National Association for Campus Activities, having performed at events for several of the world’s top colleges and institutions.

KICK is celebrating its 20th year with a major national tour sponsored by Coors Light, Ovation Guitars, Hype Energy Drink, and Splawn Amplification. For additional up-to-the-minute information about the band, visit the website, or “Kick Tunes” on Facebook, Twitter, and You Tube.
