Wednesday, July 31, 2019 - Alive After Five Summer Concert Series

Critical Hits is a four-piece cover band from Boise Idaho, who finalized their lineup in early 2017. Comprised of Ian Fornshell (Lead Vocals, Guitar, Bass, Flute and Harmonica), Kevin Beaver (Lead Guitar and Bass), Nick Landry (Bass, Lead Guitar and Piano) and Matt Jantz (Drums and Vocals); Critical Hits members come from a diverse musical background, which shapes their eclectic sound and musical selections.

Defined by fluid drum beats, funky bass lines, wailing guitar solos, whimsical flute arrangements, and Fornshell’s husky melodic vocals; Critical Hits creates a positive, fun atmosphere where lovers of all musical genres will feel right at home. The founding members of Critical Hits decided from their inception that they wanted to shock and delight audiences by playing all the music they love without being limited by conventional genre lines. Critical Hits collaborates to play music proposed by each member of the band, all of whom come from different musical backgrounds. This keeps the music fresh and exciting and keeps them growing as musicians.
