More info below:

Post-everything instrumental music embracing beautiful melodies, compelling rhythmic glue, and jazz-informed improvisation. This band take chances, but never EVER loses sight of what makes music interesting: melody, rhythm, and texture. Is it jazz or some kind of miracle of modern rock music? Yes, it is both. Think: the simple soulful melodies and deep grooves of Booker T and the MG’s, but armed with the lush harmonic language of Wayne Shorter and a rhythmic vocabulary beyond 1-2-3-4.

Well known throughout the southeastern USA, Kenosha Kid made recent appearances in Germany, Ireland, and Canada, often enlisting the additional help of like-minded fellow musicians.

In 2020, the European formation of the group makes a return to Ireland and features Dan Nettles, Berlin bassist Roland Fidezius (the fierce Lemmy-like low end from Peter Van Huffel’s Gorilla Mask) alongside Dubliners Shane Latimer (guitarist of OKO, Outerspaceways Inc. and arch-minimalists) and Matthew Jacobson (the percussive genius behind ReDiviDeR, Insufficient Funs, and Clang Sayne).

Based in the humid indie-rock haven of Athens, Georgia, guitarist/composer/bandleader Dan Nettles has supplied the world with his own unique blend of modern-jazz-meets-college-radio for over a decade. In 2004, Nettles formed Kenosha Kid with these principles: build a scene, write for people you know, and listen to your creative heart regardless of music idiom. Starting with the release of Projector [2005], Kenosha Kid has succeed in this, providing a steady string of remarkable content in a variety of formations (from trio to ten-piece) and flavours (from silent film scores to sci-fi influenced future-music).
The newest album, Outside Choices [2017] picks up where 2015’s Inside Voices left off.
The melodies are haunting, the grooves are devastating, and the band continues to expertly serve jazz purists, indie-rock hipsters, and funk loving jam fans alike.
