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 , 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 , the vinyl release of Fahrenheit , 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. A companion record, Outside Choices, recorded during the same week in Athens, is due out in 2017.
The melodies are haunting, the grooves are devastating, and the band expertly serves jazz purists, indie-rock hipsters, and funk loving jam fans alike.
