Friday, 5:00-8:00pm — Concert Stage
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.” 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. Today, KICK is widely regarded as one of the most talented, high-energy and diverse rockshows in North America. KICK is celebrating its 20th year with a major national tour sponsored by Coors Light, Ovation Guitars, Hype Energy Drink, and Splawn Amplification.
