The Kicks are: Earl Gray

Local musicians perform at Legion just for Kicks

The Kicks will get you off your feet and up dancing

Earl found Steve floating in a leaky boat  in the Sooke Inlet; Steve found Glyn building a mud hut in Papau, New Guinea and Glyn found Janet in a Southern Georgian gospel choir. Now whether any of that is true of not, it doesn’t matter because these four musicians have actually come together and formed a band called The Kicks.

This local band has a definite West Coast vibe despite the fact that all the members migrated to Vancouver Island from other parts of the country. With sets consisting of cleverly arranged covers and original songs with funky Latin overtones, this group is set to appeal to a wide audience.  The band’s goal is to get everyone out of their seats, dancing from the start of the show until the last song.

The band was founded by professional singer/songwriter and lead guitarist Earl Gray and drummer/percussionist Steve Mullen. Brought together by an appreciation of music and a desire to create a distinct sound, they began collaborating to find songs and rhythms that inspired them. They sought out like minded musicians bringing in bassist Glyn Davies and vocalist Janet McTavish to complete their vision.

They are no strangers to the music scene and have a wealth of musical experience behind them, if you counted up the years it would be well past 100.

The Kicks have a signature style filled with solid bass grooves, dynamic percussion accents, smooth harmonies and wicked guitar solos.

“It all culminates into a fusion of rhythmic fun! We challenge you to try not clapping your hands and tapping your feet,” said Gray.

The band looks forward to sharing their infectious enthusiasm with everyone when performing at the Sooke Legion on Saturday, April 25. Show time is 7:30 p.m. Tickets are currently on sale for $10.00 at the Legion bar and a limited amount of tickets will be available at the door.  You do not have to be a Legion member to attend concerts (or anything)  at the Legion.
