Whatever you do, don’t mistake [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kicking Daisies[/lastfm] as mere kids. With the charismatic lead singer Duran Visek, an extremely talented bassist/vocalist/songwriter by the name of Carly Kalafus, her sister Caitlin Kalafus who is one of America’s fastest drummers, and Ben Spremulli the next prodigious lead guitar player, and this group is no joke. [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kicking Daisies[/lastfm] puts on a show that is so energetic that there is not one person in the room who isn’t up and dancing.
Kicking Daisies – “Keeping Secrets“
Being named Disney’s “Next Big Thing,” the four-piece band from a basement in Milford, Connecticut, has already appeared on national television and has played for sold out crowds throughout the country. With a tour already going on, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kicking Daisies [/lastfm]has performed at the Macy’s annual Schools Out Summer Fest in NYC on July 17th, and is set to perform a few times on the Vans Warped Tour. They are definitely ready to rock out for the rest of the summer.
This band owes all its thanks to the two-time Grammy-winner [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Mike Mangini[/lastfm]. Mr. Mangini has decided to become their producer once he had heard guitarist[lastfm link_type="artist_info"] Ben Spremulli[/lastfm] play. From that point on, the decision was made to create the best four-piece band that could be made, and that is exactly what happened. Now with the help of mix masters, David Bendeth ([lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Paramore[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Taking Back Sunday[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Vertical Herizon[/lastfm]), and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Howie Beno[/lastfm] ([lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Little Jackie[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]We the Kings[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Diane Birch[/lastfm]), the band is ready to release a new self-titled EP’s for all their fans. From the synth-heavy hook, ”Dangerous”, to the epic chorus of ”Breathing”, their songs will most definitely put a smile on your face and get you to dance.
