KICK- The INXS Experience is the USA’s most captivating salute and tribute to the internationally acclaimed rock band, INXS. KICK has beautifully managed to capture the spirit of INXS in both sound and live performance, faithfully recreating the music in its most powerful sense. Hits that include: Need You Tonight, Devil Inside, New Sensation, What You Need, Never Tear Us Apart, Disappear, Suicide Blonde, Bitter Tears, and The One Thing.
KICK-The INXS Experience is a unique blend of incredibly talented musicians who bring the highest level of musicianship to the audience while showing a true passion for the music of INXS- consistently causing the spontaneous eruption of a decadance-rock party!
Vocalist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter, Cory Massi, has long held a respect and admiration for the late great Michael Hutchence; seeing INXS perform in Philadelphia in 1988 and 1989 served more than a young man’s yearning to scour the beauties in attendance or to drink in the sobering decadence. These were enlightening moments; Michael Hutchence embodied all that a true entertainer strives to be. He was a natural, nearly impossible to become. That caliber of presence either sends your performer-soul to whimpering or it inspires you to soar.
KICK- The INXS Experience has beautifully managed to capture the spirit of INXS in both its sound and live performance. The focus has been on faithfully recreating the music in its most powerful sense, an in-the-pocket bottom end from bass player, Don Leslie and drummer, Gary Forbes, a brilliant combination of piano and synth by Johnny Cassidy; the signature guitar tones produced by guitarists, Todd King and Jason Taylor; and saxophone by area favorite, Tom Wheat and the spot-on lead vocals by Cory Massi, all lend to a powerful high-energy show that is guaranteed to have the entire venue singing and dancing to every song- all night long!
The band hears it, time and time again:
“This was like seeing INXS all over again, I’m their biggest fan.”
“That was such an awesome surprise, I’d almost forgotten how much I love INXS!”
“I came thinking I would only know a couple of songs, but I knew every single one- and the words, too.”
“Cory Massi is Michael Hutchence 2.0, fabulous!”
“KICK- The INXS Experience will take you back. It will reignite your passion for INXS. It will introduce you to music that is still as fresh today as the day it was written; Original Sin to Elegantly Wasted and everything in between!”
So, slide over here… and give me a moment.
