Wednesday, August 14, 2019 - Alive After Five Summer Concert Series


NKE is built from a mix of Funk, Reggae, Rock, Country and the Blues. Audiences have enjoyed this intense fusion and unique songwriting around the world. Robere Kazadi lays down a thumping bass line to his lyrics while Noah Kadre takes lead guitar playing to a new level. West Coast living inspired Noah to write catchy and lively tunes like Tijuana and Fun Bus. Robere has a sultry John Mayer approach to his songwriting. He also has the ability to switch it up to pure country with songs like Down the Road, a song that always fills a dance floor.  Tom Kicmol delivers the perfect drum beat for every genre. Elizabeth Findley adds perfect keys and vocals to arrangements. Their live performances will take you on a musical odyssey!

2018 was a busy year for the group with a European Tour and the release of their EP, Fun Bus.  Original songs such as the title track, "Fun Bus", takes the listener back to the beloved 60s surf rock era, while songs like "Hello World" pushed them forward into an epic modern vibe. Their songs are inspired by their travels, broken relationships and finding happiness through it all. While their music has meaningful lyrics you can expect deep instrumentals that might remind you of jam bands like Phish and the Grateful Dead. One song could last an entire set. No two concerts are the same!
