The multi-talented five-some The KC Sisters put a fresh new spin on the term “Sister Act.” Harkening back to the heyday of family groups, with a rootsy, Americana sound that incorporates folk, country, gospel, R&B and jazz.

What sets The KC Sisters apart from any other group of musical siblings or indie bands is their musical diversity, transcendent ease with three and four part harmonies, and the fact that each sister is a multi-talented vocalist and musician skilled in a variety of instruments. Deanna (18) and Noelle (16), who wrote “Daddy Came Home” with their father, the group’s producer and arranger Chris Casey, play violin, piano, drums, guitar and bass. Their younger sisters are 14 year old Tasha (violin, drums, piano, bass) and 12 year olds Elise (violin, cello, bass, piano, drums) and Kathleen (violin, bass, drums, piano). Their shows include multi-harmonized vocals, instrumentals, country fiddling, a capella hymns, pop, jazz, standards and country music.

*IN THE EVENT OF RAIN, CONCERT WILL BE HELD INDOORS ON THE 2ND FLOOR OF THE BARNEY LIBRARY.

Drawing on a wide variety of traditional music forms, the Bluelights have created a new musical style respecting equally the past and present. A typical Bluelights performance might include original music, early jazz, blues, swing, standards, jug band, gospel, pop music from the turn of the century and roots rock‘n’roll. Starting in 1986, they continue to perform at festivals, concerts and clubs throughout North America. Their most recent triumph was to win the 2008 State of CT Blues Challenge and the opportunity to represent their state in the International Blues Challenge in Memphis Tennessee.
