    • KICK: The INXS Experience is a unique blend of incredibly talented musicians who bring the highest level of musicianship to the audience while showing a true passion for the music of INXS- consistently causing the spontaneous eruption of a dekadance-rock party!

      Vocalist, guitarist, and singer-songwriter, Cory Massi, has long held a respect and admiration for the late great Michael Hutchence; seeing INXS perform in Philadelphia in 1988 and 1989 served more than a young man’s yearning to scour the beauties in attendance or to drink in the sobering decadence. These were enlightening moments; Michael Hutchence embodied all that a true entertainer strives to be. He was a natural, nearly impossible to become. That caliber of presence either sends your performer-soul to whimpering or it inspires you to soar.

      In July of 2013, while attending an Aerosmith tribute show, Draw the Line, at the House of Blues in Myrtle Beach, it struck him that there was no reason he couldn't be on that stage in tribute to Michael Hutchence and INXS, an idea he had been tossing around for nearly a decade. Cory had watched the emergence of the tribute scene during that time and after a conversation or two with leading tribute circuit friends, Paul Sinclair of "Get the Led Out" and Rick Murphy of "Hollywood Nights" and the various life-long friends who backed both these great singers, he found himself inspired to bring his idea to fruition.

      KICK- The INXS Experience has beautifully managed to capture the spirit of INXS in both its sound and live performance. The focus has been on faithfully recreating the music in its most powerful sense, an  in-the-pocket bottom end from bass player, Don Leslie and drummer, Johnny Dee, a brilliant combination of piano and synth by Mark Goodnough; the signature guitar tones produced by guitarists, Todd King and Jason Taylor; and saxophone by area favorite, Tom Wheat  and the spot-on lead vocals by Cory Massi, all lend to a powerful high-energy show that is guaranteed to have the entire venue singing and dancing to every song- all night long!
