“The Irish chapter of US guitarist Dan Nettles’ Kenosha Kid franchise blew the doors off the Bray Jazz Festival with their winning blend of killer grooves and loud guitars… artfully blends surf rock and contemporary jazz with college radio and a country twang,” –Irish Times
Well known throughout the southeastern USA, Kenosha Kid also has made recent appearances in Germany, Ireland, and Canada, often enlisting the additional help of like-minded fellow musicians.
In March 2020, the European formation of the group will make a return to Ireland, UK and Germany, and will feature Nettles, Berlin bassist Roland Fidezius (the fierce Lemmy-like low end from Peter Van Huffel’s Gorilla Mask) alongside Dubliners Shane Latimer (guitaist of OKO, Outerspaceways Inc. and arch-minimalists 無我.) and Sean Carpio (the percussive genius behind The Stella Maris Project, Bog Bodies and Wowos).
“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.” – All About Jazz

“Missing Pieces resonates… a cycle of broken quietude that’s gently settling into place… Throughout Kenosha Kid’s nearly 15-year existence, Nettles has written hundreds of songs, yet few resonate as profoundly as anything on Missing Pieces… as he shows in his own impenetrable and postmodern way, the only way out is through.”
