Kix will kick up the volume in Hummels Wharf

HUMMELS WHARF — Music gets a real kick in the pants this Saturday when music goes back in time with the in-your-face, wild party boys of Kix returning to the area for what looks to be another sell-out performance.

On Saturday night, the Maryland-based 1980s mega rock band Kix will headline a triple threat of a show at The Wharf in Hummels Wharf for a wild night of music that will also include the Florida-based rockers Modern Superstars and the local sounds of Holy Hannah.

“This is going to be, as with all our shows, a party and high energy Kix show our fans in Pennsylvania expect. It’s a chance to let loose and just have a wild time and hear all your favorite music we have done over the years,” said Kix band member Steve Whiteman. “We always have a blast when we play up that way and have been playing that area ever since we started. In fact, when we first started out, we were relentless when it came to playing at different venues in that area. We built a strong fan base who encouraged us and to this day they still do.”

Known for their powerful and highly energetic stage presence that has taken them around the world, Kix has recently played gigs in Hollywood, Las Vegas and a boat rockin 1980s cruise to the Bahamas.

“We just got back from the cruise and it was amazing. The people onboard were going crazy and really getting into the music,” he said. “It was even difficult for the band to catch some of the other ’80s bands that were playing since we were either playing or we would get swamped with fans as soon as we left our cabin. It was a wild time.”

That wild musical time has grown over the years for Steve and his fellow band mates, saying their music has become stronger and their appreciation for what they do and their fans has never been higher.
