In the summer of 2016 well known Charlotte, NC Drummer and Educator Mike Graci decided to put together a 80s Tribute band that was not only top notch sounding but gave the total 80s experience. Something that was truly special and would bring an audience back in time. High energy and incorporated an 80s show! He was lucky enough to find the members he wanted to join him in this dream and Kids in America - Totally 80's Tribute Band was born! Right from the start, Kids in America has been an extremely popular band in not just Charlotte area but around the USA. Playing shows TX, NC, SC, VA, TN, GA, MD and more. The Fillmore Charlotte and many major festivals, corporate events, weddings, birthday parties and reunions.
In the summer of 2017 the members of Kids in America embarked on another musical quest and New Kids was born! Keyboardist Dave Lickert said, since we are all such 90s fans as well, why don't we do a 90s Tribute show? All the members were 100% ALL in, no questions asked! "It just made sense said", Male singer Jordan Chapman. We have such a great time at out shows and are grateful for all the fans that come out to our shows, I just felt right. Female singer Natalie Morris says, "We wanted to not just give a 90s show that was just rock or grunge based (which lot of the other 90s bands do) but we wanted to make it more Pop, Dance, Top-40 based as well".
New Kids plays the hottest 90's hit's from Madonna, Backstreet Boys, Spice Girls, Shania Twain, Queen, Ace of Base, Garth Brooks, Pearl Jam, No Doubt, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and much more! "We really wanted it to be diverse as possible because we loved all the styles of music that the 90's had to offer" said guitarist Jake Wright. Drummer and band manager Mike Graci is very pleased with the birth of New Kids, he said, "I know this is a Tribute Band that is needed and wanted. It will have great success just like Kids in America. With the same exact talent, how could you go wrong?". New Kids can be hired along with Kids in America as two different shows for bigger events/festivals or can be hired as its own show.
