The big sounds of big brass were in the air at our 2013 Spring Preview Concert. The Kilties wish to extend a huge "THANK YOU!" to the Belle City Brass Works of Racine for joining us for our spring preview concert. We felt that it was a perfect match of Racine-based brass groups coming together to entertain both local audiences and fans who traveled to the event. Equally big kudos to members of the community and to our fans who turned out in such great numbers! Not a parking spot was left at the school and the auditorium was packed! Wow! You are all the best!
The Kilties were extremely proud to be able to present the field show in this "pre-pre-season" event. It's no small feat after not quite four rehearsal weekends, and we know it all just keeps getting better from here as the corps begins to prepare their field show at our next kamp.
For those who could not join us, we missed you! But we have good news for you (as well as for those who were able to attend but would like to experience it again)! You can view a video of the portion of the concert which featured our 2013 field show, titled "Station KILT." How's that for terrific! Just click the link below. We think you'll agree with the fans who attended the event - this show has the makings to be an audience favorite! Tune into Station KILT - the Best in Classic Rock featuring the music of Santana, The Beatles, Queen and The Everly Brothers.
It's not too late to join our ranks for 2013. All sections are still accepting applications, but the positions will be gone quickly. Come join us this summer and you can make this great show happen. Simply click the "join" tab above to find out more!
Coming off a very successful seasons in 2012, the Kilties are looking to an even more outstanding experience in 2013. The corps is made up of approximately 75 members who range in age from 18 to 65. They will appear in 23 shows, parades and concerts during this season. No matter what the venue, the Kilties can be counted upon to deliver a performance that is aimed at communicating with and entertaining every person who experiences it.
In 2013, you will be tuning into Radio Station KILT – The Best of Classic Rock to catch the Kilties field program. This production features exciting and unique treatments of five mega-hits from the 60s and 70s.
The show opens with the explosive Latin rock rhythms of Carlos Santana’s “Everybody’s Everything.” This is followed by The Beatles hauntingly beautiful “Yesterday” and a driven version of “Eleanor Rigby.” A rollicking, fun presentation of “Bohemian Rhapsody” brings the Queen masterpiece to the field, and the show concludes with a unforgettable treatment of “Bye Bye Love,” by the Everly Brothers.
The Kilties sincerely hope you enjoy experiencing their performance as much as they do producing and presenting it!
