“Just in from one of the best gigs I have seen this year. The Kennedys were superb at The Loft tonight. Wonderful music and a great U2 cover in Wild Honey. Anyone who missed it missed a treat of a gig. Hope they come back again soon.”

    Unique Uplifting AND Unclassifiable! The Kennedys return to The FLASH! Saturday April 26 Open 7PM Show 8PM ADVANCE $18 DAY OF $22 HEADLINER The Kennedys In a career that now spans two decades, New York duo Pete and Maura Kennedy have traversed a broad musical landscape, surveying power pop, acoustic songwriting, organic rock rooted in their early days in Austin, and a Byrds-inspired jangle that drew the attention of Roger McGuinn, Steve Earle, a nd most notably Nanci Griffith. The duo co-produced Nanci's latest CD. On their own recent release, "Closer Than You Know", the songs have a quality, inherent in Maura's voice, that is both soothing and urgent. As writers and producers, the Kennedys continue to mature, from their early style-conscious pop to today's burnished sheen. Always tuned to their own muse, Pete and Maura have once again come up with a unique sound that is as uplifting as it is unclassifiable. OPENER Mariana Bell Somewhere between folk & rock, coffeehouse indie acoustic & catchy pop, the music of pensive romantic and witty social critic Mariana Bell is singular. Whether soft & sweet or rhythmic & driving, her "soulful breed of song" & undeniable onstage appeal transcend singer/songwriter. http://www.kennettflash.org/ $18 adv, $22 door 8pm show
