Watch & Listen
Since the formation of Sidewise in 2001, a constant flow of creativity and hard work has pushed the band to where they stand today. Sidewise generates an amazing amount of energy on and off the stage, leaving audiences feeling captivated. They have gained major attention from fans all over, young and old. From the catchy rhythms to heart-thumping low end, their lyrics of life set the tone in every song for an amazing ride.
After returning from tour with the mighty Sevendust, Sidewise kicked off the year by joining SHIPROCKED, a cruise dedicated to Rock N'Roll fans everywhere. Sidewise and other major Artists got the chance to sail the seas with some of the biggest fans in rock and metal music! They have continued on to play the largest one day music festival in the USA, 98.9 The Rock's ROCKFEST at Liberty Memorial on multiple occasions. Sidewise rocked alongside bands such as Nothing More, Papa Roach, Anthrax, Rob Zombie, and many more to make this one of the most successful festivals in America.
Blood, sweat, and tears are left on every stage they play, in hopes that you have been infected by their dream of music that has come to life.
KingShifter plays hard-ass-rock m*therf**ker! End of story. They don't play games or follow trends. The music speaks for itself. To summarize, KingShifter is all about the riff and the booze...it's all rock n' roll! KingShifter has continually “pounded” the circuit in the last few years hitting several cities repeatedly in Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Missouri, as well as Arkansas. They are building a “circuit” and plan to continue their work on the road, branching out to new areas. When playing their hometown of Wichita, KS…they easily draw 250+ consistently.
KingShifter has successfully garnered airplay on Minnesota’s 95.7 The Blaze (and is the reigning
champion in the “Cage Match” having beat All That Remains, Beastie Boys, and others to
hold the title for a record 9 consecutive days) KingShifter is also “in rotation” on Western Kansas’
99.9 KWKR, several internet radio stations, including Pandora...be sure to look them up.
