Kenosha Kid + Ricci

Kenosha Kid has supplied the world with their own unique blend of modern-jazz-meets-college-radio for over a decade — the melodies are haunting, the grooves are devastating, and the band expertly serves jazz purists, indie-rock hipsters, and funk-loving jam fans alike.

Ricci is a fresh slap in the face of pop, with tunes leading you quickly from the conventional path into unfamiliar terrain. Unique riffs and memorable melodies work together, varying the mood from head-banging, unapologetic open chord anthems, to strange, wondrous intoxications just shy of a pure psychedelia.

Based in the humid indie-rock haven of Athens, Georgia; Kenosha Kid has supplied the world with their own unique blend of modern-jazz-meets-college-radio for over a decade. In 2004, after several weeks study and improvisation at the Banff Centre for the Arts, bandleader Dan Nettles emerged with a flame of inspiration, a host of new collaborators and an invigorated sense of purpose: Build a scene, write for people you know, and listen to your creative heart regardless of music idiom. Returning to Athens, Nettles did just that, which became the beginning of Kenosha Kid.

Starting with the release of Projector [2005], Kenosha Kid has provided a steady string of content: a DVD/CD package featuring an all-new score for Buster Keaton’s silent film Steamboat Bill, Jr [2008], the vinyl release of Fahrenheit [2009], which is ten selections inspired by Ray Bradbury’s sci-fi classic, and the creation of an extensive Bandcamp archive which houses over 40 live shows.

Their newest album, Inside Voices (March 2015) showcases the telepathic core trio of Dan Nettles, Robby Handley and Marlon Patton alongside a formidable horn section comprised of Nettles’ Banff colleagues trumpeter Jacob Wick, alto saxophonist Peter Van Huffel and tenor/bari saxophonist Greg Sinibaldi.

The melodies are haunting, the grooves are devastating, and the band expertly serves jazz purists, indie-rock hipsters, and funk-loving jam fans alike.

Ricci (as in Christina Ricci) is the brainchild of Atlanta-based multi-instrumentalist Ben Williams. A fresh slap in the face of pop, the tunes take you lead you quickly from the conventional path into unfamiliar terrain. Unique riffs and memorable melodies work together, varying the mood from head-banging, unapologetic open chord anthems, to strange, wondrous intoxications just shy of a pure psychedalia. The music takes an takes a whimsical stance: “It’s is if you've fallen hopelessly in love with the beautiful lead in your favorite film all over again, only this time the feeling is reciprocated. The love between you is finally real. As long as the music of Ricci is there to bridge the unseemly eternal gap that still is… Yes, it was an illusion, but one you should not be ashamed to entertain as often as you like.”
