The Knickerbocker Saloon is easily my favorite bar in Lafayette. The low lighting and friendly staff always put me at ease, not to mention they always know what drink I want the second I walk in the door. 12952764_10209610748373951_332648275_oOnce I received my customary Bud Light I made my way back to the tables in last section of the stage room.

The Down Low Kickers were taking the stage as I sat down. The Down Low Kickers are a local band made up of Levi Hession (vocals/guitar), Brand Pendleton (drums), Mitch Barker (lead guitar/vocals), and Alex Vissor (bass). Soothing and soulful, their down-home vibe complemented the relaxed atmosphere of the bar well.They played beneath a backdrop of a large cheering moose who looked like he may have had one too many.

They played a mix of originals and covers , 12947086_10209610748613957_1947425203_oincluding some Tom Petty an original song called “Take It All In”. The combination of soothing vocals and twangy acoustic guitar made “Take It All In” the perfect song for a short drunken slow dance with your sweetie.

The Down Low Kickers are a great band for relaxing around a campfire, beer (or two) in hand, with a handful of good friends.
