Headliners and Legends

You can’t keep a good band down. Cult status Boston rockers, The Real Kids, are gearing up for some hopefully true-to-life rumored new recordings, and a sure fire sensational tour of the European nation.

John Felice, whom after a storied tenure with the Velvet Underground influenced band, Modern Lovers, and a failed audition for east coast legends The New York Dolls, joined forces with Rick Coraccio, Steve Davidson, and Norman Bloom to form the original lineup of The Real Kids.

The band performed incendiary shows throughout Boston and beyond between the years of 1972 -1977, making them mainstays on the rock and roll circuit. Their music has been referred to as, “an aggressive brand of straight-ahead, no-bullshit rock which harkened back to Chuck Berry, had overtones of the British Invasion groups at their mod finest, yet pointed the way towards the Punk to come.”

In 1977 the band, then comprising of John Felice, Billy Borgioli (guitar), Allen “Alpo” Paulino (bass), and Howie Ferguson (drums), recorded their first studio album simply entitled “The Real Kids”, originally released on the Red Star label, and years later re-released by ultra-cool Norton Records. It’s this album, and the band’s following releases, that have brought in legions of new and old fans alike, and have caused quite a demand for The Real Kids to keep rocking on.

So once again John Felice is bringing The Real Kids back with some pre-production work, which will hopefully evolve into the previously mentioned recordings, and ten dates set for shows in England, Spain and France. Kicking off the dates is an appearance scheduled for June 29th at Nambucca, in London England hosted by Dirty Water Records, which promises to be a memorable night indeed.
