Kick are an American rock band from Hartford, Connecticut, consisting of Lacey Cheryl (vocals), Brian Penn (guitar), Greg Gioia (guitar), Micke Mansfield (bass) and Paul Pedro (drums, percussion)
The band was conceived strictly for fun, as a side project for its members’ well-established original bands. But they quickly earned a reputation as “easily the top show band in New England…live, they actually look, perform, and sound better than a lot of the original artists” (Music News Express)
By their second year, they had won numerous regional critics and readers’ poll awards.
Today, Kick is widely regarded as one of the most diverse rockshows in North America. The band’s 2014 summer tour took them from Madison Square Garden to Block Island, RI.
Kick's repertoire has enabled them to become a fixture at both of the two largest casinos in the world – Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun, where they have performed in residence at Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville for nearly seven years, while supporting acts as varied as Duran Duran, Staind, Reel Big Fish and Filter.
