Last night I went with my friend Jesse to go see The Kissers at High Noon Saloon in Madison, WI. In a word, they rocked! The number of different instruments on stage was a little different... guitars, bass, violin, mandolin, accordion and of course drums. The often haunting quality of the violin played by Kari kept stealing the show. Kens lead vocals have a unique tone and timber that help make the songs so memorable. The energy of Nate on stage is insane, he just keeps going! Pete plays keyboards, tin whistle and until seeing him on stage I would have never thought of an accordion in a rock band. Joe pounds out an infectious rhythm on drums that gets people on their feet and dancing .
The stamina of the band is something to behold, it felt like they were going to keep playing all night, and in fact they played until after 1:00 am. If you want a rocking good time, go check them out. While you are there buy the CD, "Good Fight!"
