Formed in the early 1990s, Brian Kirk & The Jirks are one of the only bands on the East Coast circuit who can boast an impressive career spanning two decades!  The secret to this success lies within two basic characteristics: 1) an amazing roster of musicians and 2) Brian’s ideals of having fun with the audience instead of performing to the audience.  As other bands come and go, Brian Kirk & The Jirks continually set the standard with tons of experience while thinking outside of the box.

Behind the flashing lights, photo-shopped pictures, and fashion trends lies the foundation of live shows: good music.  This is where The Jirks shine.  Brian has enlisted an all star cast of musicians that play with maturity, originality, accuracy, and pure love of the art form.  Along with Brian is the incredible singing of David Pershan and Kristin Cochran, backed by thick vocal harmonies and multiple instrumentation including a 3 piece horn section.  BK&J have the ability to play an extremely diverse repertoire of songs complete with killer solos and great groove.  This allows the band to walk into virtually any situation and play what’s needed, whether it be rock, funk, pop, hip hop, swing, jazz, oldies, or modern songs.  Whatever the style, Brian Kirk & The Jirks play it and play it well.

Presented by Count Basie Center for the Arts
