Never miss another 'This Is The Kit' show
This is the Kit is the musical project of Kate Stables (from Winchester, England) who sings and plays banjo and guitar, sometimes solo and other times plays with a bunch of musicians - often with longtime collaborator Jesse D Vernon on violin and percussion. his Is The Kit have toured in the UK, Japan and Europe. They appear in many guises: solo, duo, psychedelic rock-formation, 4-4-2, unplugged acoustic gigs, choir workshops, homeshows, busking etc. If you thought you didn’t like the banjo, This Is The Kit will prove you wrong as Kate rips forward with a hypnotic twang pattern and a voice of rare beauty, accompanied by a backing band of minimal psychedelia. TITK has released two albums and a handful of singles since 2006.
This Is The Kit tour dates
Brooklyn-based BUKE (byook) & GASE (gace) are Arone Dyer on the "buke" (a self-modified six-string former baritone ukulele) and Aron Sanchez on the "gase" (a guitar-bass hybrid of his own creation). Both of them play double duty, also mobilizing a small army of foot percussion.
These instruments are then filtered through various pedals, amplifiers and homemade inventions to create a surprisingly complex sound. Dyer's supermelodic vocal lines weave through the beautiful yet unwieldy musical matter, balancing light and dark, calamity and control.
Their musical multi-tasking makes for live shows that are visually unexpected and sonically explosive.
