BandeMcoKie Karaoke Band
The concept of Kie Band was to *bridge the gap between karaoke and singing as part of a live covers band. (*the 'bridge' being less golden gate and more a small shaky rope one or a "Bridge over troubled warblers" if you like�.
Karaoke arrived much to the horror of music industry (and musicians alike) and refused to go away.
Relentlessly giving everyone who's not anyone a chance to sing-even if ...they were the only ones who actually thought they could. Everyone was a legend in their own mind
Then, just as we thought it was safe to sneak into the local pub for a quiet half, worse was to come. The arrival of the TV talent/singing shows
These are, let's face it, a platform for all those karaoke singers chance to be famous while all they are doing is singing cover versions on TV with a (real) backing band.
Realising that such minimal aspiration had such mass appeal; it was clear there was a gap in the market
Famously described as "The exploitation of the talentless by the mindless" a statement which fitted snugly into the 'punk ethic' I (shamelessly) thought, I'll have some of that.
So, with a high standard of musicianship and the onus on having fun, decided to offer Karaoke with a live band. Kie Band was born.
We can't provide a panel of unqualified 'experts' within our show to 'judge your performance with however, or treat those who get up to sing with contempt, however What we do offer is a warm welcoming stage, tight band, lots of help if you need it for your song, a laugh, and a platform for your big moment.
With Kie Band, there is no need to cue for hours on end, left hungry in an n overcrowded room with a number round your neck.
Just turn up Pick a song, drink as much or as little as you like beforehand, swallow your pride and come on-stage to sing. Christian Slater has joined us, as has Ricky Kaiser Chief too. We also performed at Keifer Sutherland's daughter's wedding as the evening entertainment. That's plenty name-dropping!
