Road-Tested Blues-Rockers The Kinsey Report  Make Their The Green Parrot Debut

Chicago-based Blues-Rockers The Kinsey Report brings their brand of scalding contemporary blues to the Parrot stage
A fixture on the Chicago blues scene for decades, Brothers Donald (guitar and vocals), Ralph (drums) and Kenneth Kinsey (bass) have been making music together for most of their lives, and their incendiary attack is a searing product of those years of unity.

The Village Voice has said, “The Kinsey Report attacks the beat with a rocker’s ferocity…funky and haunting solos…satisfying, mean, and danceable.” and Billboard describes their music as “Stormy, guitar-driven, up-to-the-minute Chicago blues”, while Downbeat adds, “On the edge, these bluesbreakers are paving the way between the blues and rock, reggae and soul. Their sensibility is thoroughly modern while remaining authentically grounded…. original and distinct”.

Donald Kinsey has toured and recorded with both Bob Marley and Peter Tosh before returning to the blues and reuniting with his brothers in 1984.

Reunited and  signed by Alligator Records, the brothers burst upon an unsuspecting blues world leaving fans and critics open-mouthed with amazement.  With their blistering brand of street smart, modern, funky blues-rock, the Kinsey Report has blazed a modern trail of powerful, original music that grabs both die-hard blues fans and rockers who love supercharged guitar and boneshaking vocals.
