Curtis & the Kicks / Bio

Blue Bayou recording artists Curtis & the Kicks is a funky six-piece, horn-driven, blues band inspired with Southern touches of R&B, jazz and gospel. Guitarist and lead vocal Curtis Marlatt has been backed by his Kicks for 27 years and counting. Impressing audiences from Curtis' hometown, Louisville, KY, to Southern California and finally in the Twin Cities of MN, the band finds itself in its third incarnation today. Over 45 years of playing the blues, Curtis Marlatt has been influenced by many stylists, and the resulting sound Curtis affectionately describes as "Bourbon Smooth" blues. The band includes T Scott, Ernesto Stevenson, Ed Melberg and the "Suicide Horns" of Downtown Mitchell Brown and Goldie.
