Kick Tree
"KICK TREE could be considered a venues dream come true and nightmare all in one. Their vulgarity in lyricism pairs nicely with their punk rock persona. Their music isn't farfetch'd from the early days of Green Day, but comes with a much louder, aggressive live show that just can't seem to be ignored. My synopsis of KICK TREE is to expect very big things for their future, as they very well could be the sleeping giant waiting to revise, and rekindle the spirit of punk rock music."

Kick Tree is a 5-piece, high energy rock band from the Tulsa, OK area. Starting originally in 2009 in Claremore, OK as a 3-piece with a raw punk rock sound, our sound has developed over time into a great mix of rock'n roll with a punk attitude. We bring an exciting and fun show to any stage we play. Our first full length album "Family Ties" is set to be released in 2014 following their 2013 EP release "Nuclear Winter".

Kick Tree has been selected to play:
w/ Bowling For Soup (2x) (Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa, OK)

"The Naming of Kick Tree":
The name “Kick Tree” came about when we had our first show and were still nameless. Shua asked his, at the time, 3 year old son what we should name the band. He said Green Day.... and we said well that’s taken bud do you have any other ideas? He then said, as matter of fact as a three year old can “Kick Tree”. We asked, “KICK TREE?? Why buddy??”and he simply said, “Well, you can kick trees!”....DONE....We are Kick Tree
