Rivers & Kidd

#FinalFriday at Offbeat brewery with Rivers & Kidd.
Rivers and Kidd have developed their own unique style, with original material and new interpretations of well known songs.

It was during the recording of the CD Different Skies that Martin Rivers met Jaqi Kidd, rekindling a friendship that began many years ago. There was an immediate creative spark that came from a common interest in mind body and spirit. Out of this meeting came synergy, where the whole became greater the the sum of the parts; and a new musical partnership was born.
Martin Rivers was an actual punk back in the late 1970's playing guitar with The Uninvited. They were best known for the track “Doing the East Berlin”, which can be found on the compilation LP “Cry Havoc”, which was released on Slip Records. It is now a sought after collectors item. He then went on to become a founding member of Tower Struck Down before departing to pursue different musical interests.

Jaqi Kidd was lead singer in the band Lynx. She has recently returned to the music scene after taking time out and is currently writing new material. She is a holistic therapist and a practitioner of Reiki and Qigong. Jaqi is keen to take Rivers and Kidd to the next level and her voice brings soul and depth to their music.

It was at the first Crewe Steampunk Convivial in 2016 that Rivers & Kidd were introduced to the world of Steampunk. This opened a whole new world of exciting possibilities that they wholeheartedly embraced; and this is adding a new visual dynamic to their stage show. They recently played The 2017 Crewe Steampunk Convivial with their latest member Jasper the Steampug who unashamedly stole the show.
