The iconic British rock band, The Kinks, are often cited as one of the most important and influential rock bands of all time.
It’s difficult to believe but within a year of their first unadvertised gig, The Kinx had headlined theatres, supported original 60’s bands (The Fortunes, Gerry & The Pacemakers & The Move), performed on the main stages of Britain’s top tribute festivals …… and secured a recording contract.
With three albums to their name & endorsement from non other than Dave Davies himself, The Kinx quickly established themselves as England’s premier Kinks tribute act. Now, almost 10 years into their career, they can also boast having their music included in major international film releases and performing as joint headliners with such diverse original artists as Chris Farlowe, Steve Ellis, Secret Affair, The Foundations, Marmalade, Marty Wilde, The Swinging Blue Jeans, Mike D’Abo & The Merseybeats.
Paying attention to every minute detail, adopting the classic early 1960’s dandy, red hunting jacket image, Ray Davies’s timeless classics (including Waterloo Sunset, Lola, Sunny Afternoon, Days, You Really Got Me, David Watts) are performed sympathetically and brought to life by four passionate Kinks fans. Performing Ray’s brilliant & varied song book to incredibly receptive audiences, it’s no wonder the line up of the Kinx has remained totally unchanged since that very first show back in 2008.
