Founded in 2009 by front-stunt woman, Killer Killy Dwyer in the underground scene of the Lower East Side of NYC, KILL THE BAND started as a mock band for a performance art piece created for a run in the NYC Frigid Festival. Killy carefully chose talented, like-minded, experimental musicians to fill out her concept comedy band. She brought in artists she could trust creatively and personally with arranging the songs she had been doing as a solo musician for the last year or so and they became KILL THE BAND. As the theater piece, music and relationship between the band developed, so did the band OUTSIDE the world of the theater. KILL THE BAND progressed quickly to playing clubs and festivals yet they kept all the theatrics of the mock band they had so lovingly created in the original festival show.
KILL THE BAND is continues to be a NYC based shock-mock-rock and comedy band. Combining satire and slapstick, theatrics, costumes, and music from almost every genre, KTB is accessible avant garde and punk cabaret comedy performance art with soul.
