Kickstart Rumble

Corn Hill Arts Festival Entertainment

Kickstart Rumble came together in 2009 when an ad for an upright bass player, placed by lead singer and guitarist, Mike Pinelli, was answered by Junior Douglas. Inspired to play something different than classic rock or top 40, the boys took their inspiration from The Stray Cats, Johnny Cash, Social Distortion, Elvis, Chuck Berry, Eddie Cochran, and many other “rockabilly cats” and had their first show at the now defunct, Merlin’s music club on Elmwood Ave. in Buffalo, NY.

Fast forward a number of years, an album of original material, member changes, opening up for several national acts, more member changes, the Kickstart Rumble rock n roll revival is still rolling down the tracks with Matt Schutt on upright bass, Jeff Schaller on drums, and a rotating supporting cast of musicians on sax, piano, and acoustic guitar.You never know what you might hear or see at a Kickstart Rumble show. Maybe one of our originals will become your new favorite song, or we might play something you already know, in a way you’ve never heard before. There’s always dancing and our fans are definitely not shy. One thing is for sure, we guarantee a high energy show filled with All-American Rock and Roll!

Location: The Labatt Blue Light Gazebo Stage
Time: Saturday, 2:00 pm – 3:40 pm
