Contemporary Carolina Bluegrass with traditional roots
The Kickin Grass Band , have set themselves a cut above the rest with their tight vocal harmony, driving instrumentation and effusive energy on and off the stage. WKXU's Buddy Michaels calls this fast-rising bluegrass band “wonderful, original, and full of spunk” and raves, “You will love Kickin Grass!” Dave Higgs from Bluegrass Now magazine calls their traditional arrangements “killer” and “creatively arranged” and adds, “the original tunes are just stellar.” Their live shows feature an energy and stage presence that belies their young age.
The band prides itself on reaching all types of audiences, incorporating standards, rock & country classics and a number of "can't get 'em out of yer head" originals into their entertaining sets.
