Concerts

What better way to make a fair come alive than with some great music. Year after year, the Berlin Fair hosts concerts by top musical acts that will have you singing along.

KICK Band

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.

1974 Band

Saturday 6:30-9:00pm — Concert Stage

1974 is a five-piece progressive rock band from Newington, Connecticut. Since 2007, the band has been awing audiences with high-energy, memorable, story-driven music. 1974’s multiple award-winning music has been performed at venues and festivals across New England and has reached international audiences as far as Europe, Asia and South America. Against a backdrop of powerful guitar riffs, rich vocal harmonies and catchy melodies, 1974’s Lazer Trilogy tells the story of a futuristic Earth, struggling to rebuild in the aftermath of a devastating galactic war. A controversial technology is developed that can clone the human mind into infinite hosts. “1974 & The Echoes of War” narrates the story’s pivotal moment. The technology falls into the wrong hands, starting a chain reaction that eventually leads to a decisive battle for humanity’s survival. Characters in the narrative are confronted with uncertainty, responsibility, and the question of what being human really means.

Presley and Taylor
