Vista Kicks are currently out on the road on their 24-date “Booty Shakers Ball” headlining tour, and if the title alone doesn’t make you at least a little bit excited for their upcoming show in Denver, then I don’t know what will. Following the success of the first leg last year and named after their debut full-length album, the Booty Shakers Ball tour will be hitting The Moon Room at Summit Music Hall on Thursday, March 22nd.

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), and Nolan 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 and 3.2 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 vocalist Sam Plecker. Best described as a smoked-out collaboration between James Brown and Jimmy Page, it bridges eras.
