Fahrenheit record release show!
Kenosha Kid with special guests The Trey Wright Trio

The Melting Point
295 East Dougherty Street
Celebrating the release of their newest recording, indie-jazz ensemble Kenosha Kid performs Friday October 30th at the Melting Point in Athens, Georgia. Known for their boundary crossing aesthetics and multi-media adventures, the groups latest product is sci-fi music inspired (in part) by Ray Bradbury’s classic novel “Fahrenheit 451” and takes the listeners on a wild orbit around the earth… partly composed, partly improvised, highly textured, and wholly entertaining.
Bandleader/composer/guitarist Dan Nettles says, “the seed for Fahrenheit began in the summer of 2007 after being commissioned to compose for a stage production of Fahrenheit 451 in Brunswick, Georgia. The music on the record began there, but quickly outgrew that setting and became a regular part of our set.”
Nettles worked with Eddie Whelan, a UGA student majoring in Art, to develop the material further and incorporate live multimedia content. With the support of an ICE Project Grant they staged performances in Athens and Atlanta in April 2009.
Nettles explains that “immediately after the shows, we headed to the studio the document the work. The album, which is being released as a digital download and a limited pressing of 500 records is a wild ride that I compare to a forty-minute orbit around the earth. I feel it is truly music of the future. The record features an amazing six-piece band and covers an amazing breadth of material that is all thematically related. Sections are dark, fantastic, aggressive, soulful, and outright hilarious. It is about the struggle to create something organic and spiritual in an increasingly synthetic world”
