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. Ever since Dan Nettles formed the band in 2004 – driven by these tenets: build a scene, write for people you know, and listen to your creative heart regardless of music idiom – the band has enjoyed a loyal following in their hometown of Athens and across the south-eastern states of the US.
The melodies are haunting, grooves devastating, and the band continues to expertly serve jazz purists, indie-rock hipsters, and funk loving jam fans alike.
“The harmonic richness and rhythmic involvement come from jazz, but the sonic particulars can come from Black Sabbath, Johnny Cash, Sonny Sharrock or Elvin Jones”
All in all, this is not a show to be missed. Tickets are €10 and are available at the above link.
“A mash-up between contemporary jazz, alt-rock and jam-band ethos, Kenosha Kid cast a wicked spell… Nettles… is an understated yet arresting guitarist and an accomplished composer with an ear for a good hook… Kenosha Kid would grace just about any festival stage.”

“The sort of boundary-leaping creative jazz most listeners identify with the big-city scenes of places like Brooklyn, Seattle, and the San Francisco Bay Area.”
“Knotty, mind-bending jams…Kenosha Kid runs wild with the eclectic.”
“Kenosha Kid’s music is simply wonderful to listen to: somehow soothing, exciting, experimental and melodic all at once.“
