KP and the Boom Boom / Press

"The Austin bred band that is infectiously danceable is worth more than a glance. An ULTRA tight band with superbly smooth vocals that fuses a healthy dose of soul and funk with latin rhythms and hints of 60's jazz in horn solos."

"Additionally, the nature of UTOPiAfest tends to be a draw for the biggest and brightest in the local scene, which this year includes KP and The Boom Boom, Brownout (playing back up the Wu-Tang Clan’s GZA), The Wheeler Brothers, and Aaron Behrens of Ghostland Observatory..."

“Priestley’s dancing, Wong’s jumping — in sync to the bass line — and Trowbridge’s switches between three or four instruments during a single song keep audience members on their feet, even prompting strangers to dance with one another. “We make people have a good time. They feel our music, it’s all about the heart and the soul,” Priestley says.”

“Towards the end of the set lead singer Kate joked that it was time “To fluff up my afro so we can get down” and get down is what they did. The band finished off with some funky disco inspired music that captivated even the most stagnant souls in the room.”

“'I was significantly impressed with their presence and performance. KP is a dynamic frontwoman, and the music is almost impossible to stand still to.'”

"Bands are a dime a dozen in the Live Music Capital and many don't realize much success right away. But this six-piece ensemble seems to have found the right mix of talent and personality, and it all happened with serendipity."
