Mavericks Guitarist Nick Kane Releases CD with New Band "The Balls"

Share Article

Long-time Mavericks guitar slinger Nick Kane has assembled a bare-knuckled 3-piece rock'n'roll band and re-writes the book on Instrumental Rock Music.

Nick Kane had spent several years lounging in various bands around Nashville and for most of the 90’s he traveled around the world as a member of country-pop group The Mavericks, collecting a Grammy Award and selling out 8 nights at the Royal Albert Hall along the way.

It was Nick's desire to play music that had its own voice, unencumbered from any commercial trappings, and in Nashville's cold hard heart he found the perfect place to develop this dream without distraction. He was fortunate to find two like-minded cohorts in Rick Taylor, bass guitar; and Joe Scheibelhoffer, drums; together they have formed The Balls.

The new CD "The Balls...Come Out Swingin'" is a highly original piece of work. Their style has been described as ‘garage-prog:’ on one hand they tackle very difficult and ambitious arrangements yet the band is driven by a raw, powerful and ferociously loud rock’n’roll spirit.

The listener will hear shades of early Deep Purple; grungy Link Wray; themes straight out of a Spaghetti Western; flat out paint-peeling Rock and even a touch of Pachelbel. And yet, it’s like you’re hearing it all for the first time.

The Balls are also known for their passionate live performance and their ability to take instrumental-music neophytes on a long and winding journey, riveting the audience and leaving them exhausted, elated and with mouths agape.

In the 60's you had Herb Albert, in the 70's there was Jeff Beck, today you have Nick Kane...the Balls.

"The Balls...Come Out Swingin'" is available from ballsrock.com, CDBaby.com and Guitar9.com.
