Kickin’ Krotch

Based In: Frederickon, New Brunswick

In 2012, Michael Bernard, lead vocalist, Sean Nicholas, drummer, Kevin Connor Ward, Bass, Frank Simon, lead guitar, and Kipp Sappier, rhythm guitar – came together to form the all Indigenous East Coast band known as Kickin’ Krotch, a name chosen for its ability and power to leave an unforgettable mark. Kickin’ Krotch integrates cultural storytelling with hard rock/metal to deliver an innovative and introspective throw down of lyrics and instrumentals. The depths of artistry stem from the value in Indigenous heritage and the necessity to overcome life’s addictions.
