Kick n Rush Comedy Skiffle Band | Groupnd
Kick 'n' Rush Comedy Skiffle Band
Kick 'n' Rush formed in 1980, but the origins of the band began to take shape much earlier under the name of 'Maun Valley Ramblers' during the 60's, followed by 'The Shambles' in the 70's. Their music consists of Skiffle, Comedy, Folk and Rock 'n' Roll, with their influences stretching from Lonnie Donnegan and Woody Guthrie, through to the Beatles.

What is Skiffle?
Skiffle was developed in the mid 1950's and is a blend of folk songs with an up tempo Jazz and Rock rythm. The music is happy and spontaneous and best of all, it can be played on improvised instruments such as the wash board and tea chest bass (as used by Kick 'n' Rush). This gave the working class a chance to start their own bands and indeed, Skiffle groups were formed in every town and village across Britain. At the height of the craze there where probably more people playing Skiffle music than listening to it!

Today, refusing to accept new musical technology, Kick 'n' Rush are still performing the greats in their own unique style, some 50 years after Skiffle's hey day.
