Kick was conceived in 1996 as little more than an excuse for five guys from Connecticut to have fun playing songs they liked at the clubs they'd just be hanging out anyway (and, according to one of the more ambitious entries of their mission statement: "to someday leave a club with more money than (they) went in with.")
Kick was intended to be a side project from their various well-established original bands. And while those bands had built solid reputations, selling tens of thousands of albums and touring the country with some of the biggest names in rock, the virtually overnight success of Kick would ultimately afford them the opportunity to perform for over a million music fans at virtually every major venue in the Northeast.

The Farmington Valley Band was organized in 1944 by Fred Widen, a long-standing native of Collinsville. In a way, it was an extension of the earlier Collinsville Boys Band, in which Mr. Widen had been a tuba player. Fred Widen was the driving force behind the Canton Historical museum as well, with his extensive collection of Collins related artifacts. His original Sousaphone can be seen there today, along with a re-created bandstand from the old days, worth the trip to see it. In the 1944 band reorganization, Mr. Victor Viering was selected as the band s conductor. Mr. Viering had been a trombonist in the Collinsville Boys Band.
