Vista Kicks Set For Second Leg of Headlining 'Booty Shakers Ball Tour,' Kicking Off 2/14 in Los Angeles

Music fans with an affinity for energetic live rock 'n roll should prepare themselves for the second leg of the upcoming "Booty Shakers Ball Tour."

Kicking off with a Valentine's Day show at The Troubadour in Los Angeles,VISTA KICKS will hit the road on their 23-date headlining tour following the success of the first leg (November and December 2017), named after their debut full-length album BOOTY SHAKERS BALL. With stops in Las Vegas,Chicago, Detroit, Toronto, Denver, New York City (March 1 at Mercury Lounge), Philadelphia, Atlanta, Nashville and Dallas, among many others, the Los Angeles-based band will bring their signature "...feel-great, dance-inducing vibe..." as noted by Live Nation's Ones To Watch blog across North America. VISTA KICKS will also make multiple appearances in Austin forSXSW (exact details TBA). Tickets for the "Booty Shakers Ball Tour" are on sale now and can be purchased here.

VISTA KICKS released their debut 15-track full-length BOOTY SHAKERS BALL album in September of 2017, catching the ear of BUZZBANDS LA's Kevin Bronson who noted the album "...certainly lives up to the promise of its title," adding: "the album finds Vista Kicks covering plenty of musical turf, much of which can be traced to the British Invasion. Unfettered power-pop, bad-boy glam, brash rock 'n' soul, boot-stomping bar rock--Ball spins around all of them without languishing in one place too long. More than many twenty somethings who've turned to classic rock, there's craftsmanship in what they've made, from tasty but not overplayed guitar leads to Thomas' just-right rocker snarl-cum-falsetto. Commence shaking."

VISTA KICKS--four lifelong friends from Northern California who grew up obsessed with the sounds of AC/DC, The Beatles, Black Sabbath, The Bee Gees and Michael Jackson--began playing anywhere and everywhere with a stage by the age of 16, taking over supper clubs, parties, and backyard barbecues. After their single "Make It Real" cracked 2 million Spotify streams, they made a collective decision to forego college and trade their small Sacramento suburb for Hollywood, forming VISTA KICKS in late 2015.

Living together in a cramped one-bedroom apartment, the quartet--Derek Thomas (vocals), Sam Plecker (guitar/vocals), Trevor Sutton (bass), andNolan Le Vine (drums)--quietly ignited a buzz throughout L.A. and beyond with two full U.S. tours under their belts and recording with Tommy Lee behind the board. Within a year, the band's independent 2016 Chasing Waves EP and additional singles generated over 5 million cumulative Spotify streams and3.2 million YouTube views. However, everything set the stage for the release of their latest debut full-length, BOOTY SHAKERS BALL--self-produced by the musicians themselves and engineered by their guitar player and vocalistSam Plecker. Best described as a smoked-out collaboration between James Brown and Jimmy Page, it bridges eras.
