Astoria, New York (PressExposure) July 12, 2011 -- It was a rainy New York City night, but the rain did not stop the dedicated fans from coming to see the Hard Rock Legends KIX Live at B B King Blues Club Times Square NY over the weekend.
The club was in full capacity with an amazing sound system as KIX returned to New York City after several years. Geena Jinev Anac CEO/Celebrity Manager of Lightening Entertainment was among the attendees, with her long time friend Dilek Aydincioglu an independent artist who is in town for some projects.
"The energy on the stage was amazing as they played a set list of their hits like "Don't Close Your Eyes", "Girl Money", "Cold Shower" etc. The band has the original four members and bassist Mark Schenker who is also a member of "Funny Money" http://funnymoneyband.com/ with lead singer/vocalist Steve Whiteman of KIX has replaced the original bassist & song writer Donnie Purnell for several years now and he fits right in with the chemistry of the band. Steve Whiteman once again proved that he is an amazing front man & vocalist as he hit all the high notes perfectly.
"Lead Guitarist Brian "Damage" Forsythe in my opinion who is up there with legendary guitar players along with Ronnie "10/10" Younkins have amazing chemistry & they complement each other just like Keith Richards, Ron Wood of Rolling Stones and Glenn Tipton & K. K Dawning of Judas Priest. It's a special thing when you have two lead guitar players in a band with different form and styles but when they play together its pure magic. They also are very active with other bands as well, Brian "Damage" Forsythe is a full time member of "Rhino Bucket" http://www.rhinobucket.com/ and Ronnie "10/10" Younkins is the vocalist and guitar player of "The Blues Vultures" http://bluesvultures.com/. Jimmy "Chocolate" Chalfant a gifted drummer always has the high energy drum solos & the coolest drum sets.
"I never miss KIX when they come to town because they always deliver a show that is 100% and very entertaining. They are true professionals, very friendly & and they appreciate their fans, I am already looking forward to their next show.
I recommend KIX to any music fan that wants to witness a over the top entertainment." Concluded Geena Jinev Anac.
