Several statewide dates have been booked as part of a "Farewell Tour," including stops in Jacksonville, Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, and Orlando. The tour will take place throughout January, with the final Orlando shows taking place at the Hard Rock Live on February 3, and a weekend where it all began, Reilly's Lantern Pub, on February 19-20.
Kynda has been a popular and respected Orlando establishment since 1996, when the group, then called 4:20, was founded by Tony Hume and Dan Goore. In the nearly nine years since its inception, they have played 1,000 shows together. In April 2002, the band adopted the moniker of Kynda, and since that time, have played 350 shows in ten different states, making Kynda one of the few Orlando-based touring bands.
The band has appeared at several national music festivals, and have also shared the stage with artists including Keith "Scramble" Campbell, Col. Bruce Hampton, Kofi Burbridge, Tom Constanten, Kenny Brooks of Ratdog, Deep Banana Blackout, Robert Walter's 20th Congress, Perpetual Groove, Tishamingo, RAQ, Seth Yacavone Band, and many others. This past summer, Kynda embarked upon a highly celebrated national tour, which included shows as far west as Louisiana, Texas, and Colorado.
Play Through, Kynda's live debut CD, was released in late 2003 and received four-star reviews from media across the country. Friday, January 21, Kynda will revisit the Freebird Live in Jacksonville, FL, where the album was recorded. It is still available from www.kynda.com.
