District 97

with special guest Stratospheerius

Wednesday, October 12
Show | 8pm // Doors | 7pm
ADV $25 / DOS $30

The Kennett Flash is excited to welcome DISTRICT 97 with special guests STRATOSPHEERIUS on Wednesday, October 12th at 8pm.

DISTRICT 97 is undoubtedly the most musically adventurous rock band in the world to feature an American Idol Top 10 Female Finalist. Since 2008, this quintet from Chicago has melded an adventurous, uncompromising instrumental prowess with the look, sound, and stage presence of vocalist Leslie Hunt. Through world tours and a stream of studio and live releases, the band has garnered a worldwide fanbase; collaborating with iconic singer/bassist John Wetton (King Crimson, Asia, UK) and drawing praise from Bill Bruford (drummer of Yes/King Crimson/Genesis), Mike Portnoy (drummer of Dream Theater/Transatlantic) and other rock luminaries along the way.

DISTRICT 97 rehearses doggedly to refine their compositions, ensemble-playing, and stage presentation; their standards for excellence have only grown more rigorous with the passage of time. Their latest studio album SCREENS (released October 2019) and its accompanying live shows set a high watermark of composition and musicianship. The covid-19 pandemic didn’t stop the band from innovating. Their Virtual Screening Tour, expansive live SCREENPLAY 2CD set ( released 2021), and the stunning Ghost Girl animated short film have kept them at the top of the current prog rock heap. Best of all, D97 is now back onstage dazzling audiences.
