Karpet Kickers / Press

“Massive thankyou to The Karpet Kickers and everyone who popped down last night to watch. Such a lovely atmosphere and the band were amazing.”

“Karpet Kickers. Because Mouth and Music is an acoustic night, the band had rehearsed a new set to suit the occasion. At ease on a stage they owned with affection, their songs were as moving and beautiful as Jane’s story. Their performance was a perfect end to the evening.”

“Hailing from Kidderminster, the ‘Karpet Kickers’ are a six-piece Rock ‘n’roll/soul/blues group comprised of some of the town’s most seasoned and professional musicians. With nearing FOUR DECADES of experience within the group you could only expect the best from these local rockers! Taken from their recent offering ‘A Life’s Work’, it was the track ‘Eastern Curse’ which most intrigued me. This band would regularly be paired with the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Doors and The Who, so you can imagine my curiosity when presented with the band’s take on REGGAE. The track begins with a lone piano plodding away at a steady reggae ‘riddim’ until we are hit with a superb guitar riff which is the definitive hook of ‘Eastern Curse’, i can already feel myself humming along. As the song kicks off the instrumentation holds a great deal of responsibility to the sound achieved.”

“Soul, Funk, Blues, Rock & Roll chuck it in the musical melting pot, sprinkle some fat bass, stir it up and you get the Karpet Kickers a six piece band from the carpet town of Kidderminster. Fronted by Gehardt an enigmatic platinum haired conductor of funk who would'nt look out of place fronting the Rolling Stones, with an on stage presence rarely seen since the days of Jim Morrison and the Doors”
