Kickstar is a hard rockin'
trio from North Central Montana. We play both kinds of music:
Rock and Roll.
Actually, we are more
diverse than just Rock n'
Roll. We can tailor our play list to the crowd no matter what
club or event we play. Kickstar can be a hard rock band with
hint of heavy metal. We can be a modern rock band with a
of old time rock n' roll. Or, we can be a variety
playing it all from the 60's through today's top hits. We may
even throw in a wee bit 'o country if you ask real nice and promise to
dance and have fun so we don't get bored. We can do a whole
of acoustic songs if that's what your little heart desires. We can play
a couple sets of original material, or salt and pepper our sets with a
kick-ass original song here and there. It's a matter of taste.
So who are these freaks,
you ask? Dana
Hughes, a.k.a. . Peaches to her close friends, fronts the band on lead
vocals and bass. If you ask her how she got her nickname,
she’ll just smile and blush. She’s got a dynamic
vocal range and can play the crap out of her 5-string Washburn, or
sweetly strum her acoustic guitar. Her voice can do the same,
giving you chills with her sweet melodies or growling out great covers
of Pat Benetar or Joan Jett. Oh, and if you touch her guitar
without permission, she’ll kick you in the nuts.
guitar is Jimi Hughes, two guitar players in one. He has
fingers, so covering 2 guitar parts is his specialty. If you
didn’t see that there was only one guitar up there on stage,
you’d swear there were 2 or more. Jimi can shred the hell
outta his Les Paul, with his eyes closed all the while. This
him in trouble though. Once he was so engrossed in his
eyes-closed solo during the song American Idiot that he didn’t
see this drunk dude approaching the stage to use his mic. When he
opened his eyes, dude was right in his face. Without skipping
note, he raised his right hand toward the dude’s chest.
There were sparks and a flash of light. The dude levitated
flew 15 feet, landing flat on his back. The song went
The dude stumbled out of the bar, and was never to be seen
again. No lie, it was awesome!
If you get the
chance to see us, don’t miss out, you’ll love it.
People tell us all the time that they don't really get a good idea of
our band until they actually see us perform, our
energy is unbelievable!
you hire us for a party or other private gig, you won't be
disappointed. We're the hardest working band around. We’ve
got great equipment, three times more than your average 3 piece
band. We're available with stage lights, PA, Fog machine, and
provide music between sets so there's never any downtime. We can handle
outdoor gigs, festivals, or large indoor halls (No place is too small
