Welcome to the Kindred Spirit website!
Hey there, Kindred Spirit fans! (updates from Mike) - November 2023
WOW it’s been a pretty crazy year, as we’ve come to an ending of the current Kindred Spirit line up, after so many years playing together.
Fortunately, there’s still a lot of music to come from everyone in the band, and a new Kindred Spirit line up will begin soon, starting this upcoming New Years Eve!! We've got a lot of shows planned for 2024 and will keep you all posted- check the “Upcoming shows” on this site. ALSO, check out the new “Kindred Spirit DUO” section on this site for info on our DUO's appearances.
We’re so grateful for everyone’s fantastic support of our band! We have built our sense of musical community since the initial launching of Kindred Spirit back in 2002. Our long-running 5-piece line up has been together since 2010, and it’s been an amazing time, with over 500 shows!! We’ve played for appreciative audiences at some huge outdoor concerts, and at our favorite clubs with full dance floors.
Over the months ahead, I’m planning to put together some highlight videos and photos from the past years on the Kindred Spirit website and will keep the current recordings and concert videos on here as well.
As for the future, we’re all continuing to make music in several different bands… Duos, Trios, and Full Bands!
While Ed, Joe, and Gary are moving on, I am working with Brian and some other talented musicians to launch a new version (or versions) of Kindred Spirit.
Currently, Joe, Gary and Brian are collaborating in The Best of Clapton band, Gary is playing in the Skyline Trio, and Ed will continue to play with The Mahoney Brothers band.
As well as a new Kindred Spirit lineup, I’ve got a number of upcoming Kindred Spirit Duo gigs with Steve Bross (from Full Grown Men), as well as singing regularly with Lovelight, the Grateful Dead band.
I’ll be sending notices out to the Kindred Spirit email list while continuing to post on the band's website and Facebook page. Also, you can check everyone’s Facebook page where they will keep on posting their upcoming projects.
Thanks to everyone for continuing to support LIVE LOCAL MUSIC!
Hope to see you all soon! Thanks!! Mike Slom
