Vista Kicks will play at JJ's Bohemia on Friday, March 9.

Review for Vista Kicks: 

Music fans with an affinity for energetic live rock ‘n roll should prepare themselves for the second leg of the upcoming “Booty Shakers Ball Tour.” 

Kicking off with a Valentine’s Day show at The Troubadour in Los Angeles, Vista Kicks will hit the road on their 23-date headlining tour following the success of the first leg (November and December 2017), named after their debut full-length album Booty Shakers Ball. The Los Angeles-based band will bring their signature “…feel-great, dance-inducing vibe…” as noted by Live Nation’s Ones To Watch blog across North America, including a stop in Chattanooga at JJ’s Bohemia.

Vista Kicks released their debut 15-track full-length Booty Shakers Ball album in September of 2017.  

Vista Kicks is four lifelong friends from Northern California who grew up obsessed with the sounds of AC/DC, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, The Bee Gees and Michael Jackson--began playing anywhere and everywhere with a stage by the age of 16, taking over supper clubs, parties, and backyard barbecues. After their single “Make It Real” cracked two million Spotify streams, they made a collective decision to forego college and trade their small Sacramento suburb for Hollywood, forming Vista Kicks in late 2015. 

Living together in a cramped one-bedroom apartment, the quartet--Derek Thomas (vocals), Sam Plecker (guitar/vocals), Trevor Sutton (bass), and Nolan Le Vine (drums)--quietly ignited a buzz throughout L.A. and beyond with two full U.S. tours under their belts and recording with Tommy Lee behind the board. Within a year, the band’s independent 2016 Chasing Waves EP and additional singles generated over five million cumulative Spotify streams and 3.2 million YouTube views. However, everything set the stage for the release of their latest debut full-length, Booty Shakers Ball - self-produced by the musicians themselves and engineered by their guitar player and vocalist Sam Plecker. Best described as a smoked-out collaboration between James Brown and Jimmy Page, it bridges eras.

Roy Exum: ‘Easy Eddie’ & Butch

Not an hour’s drive from where I now sit is one of the best restaurants in all of Tennessee. Its been some years since I last ate supper at High Point, a legendary mansion restored to elegance by the current owners but, back in the ‘60s, I got a wide-eyed teenager’s peek at the place one Sunday afternoon. What’s this? 14-inch walls filled with sand to stop a G-man’s bullet? Escape ... (click for more)
