They are an authentic 8 Piece Jazz Band taking Top 40 hits and approaching them in a swing and Jazz style.
Fronted by the phenomenal vocals of Hannah Foster and Cameron Bruce, The Kicks takes the every day pop songs we hear on the radio and approaches them with a jazz/swing feel. Simply put we take pop music back in time. Be it Meghan Trainor’s “All About That Bass” in a swing style, George Ezra’s “Budapest” in a blues/Jazz style or Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” in a slow Bossa style we aim to recreate the atmosphere of the great swing and big band era. It’s quite a sight to have a full 8-piece swing band on stage playing recognisable pop tunes with a Gatsby feel.
The Kicks adds an elegant, classy and sophisticated flair to any event! The full horn section really transports the arrangements of each song back to the 1940’s.
The band consists of some of the most formidable South African musicians including Benjamin Jephta, Dave Cousins, Justin Badenhorst, Neil Engel, Justin Sasmen and Thomas Dancer.
With an impressive repertoire of original arrangements of pop songs and a full party set in their arsenal, The Kicks is sure to impress any crowd!
After releasing their first album; a collection of cover songs, the band embarked on a short tour of Holland which included an appearance on the Dutch TV and Radio Show, Omrop Fryslan, which broadcasts to over 60,000 viewers! Aside from weddings, the band performs at many different events around the UK and Europe.
