THE SIDEKIX NEW CD IN PROGRESS....
Hi, welcome to the Sidekix, a versatile entertainment duo from Telford, Shropshire featuring Gary 'O' and Robbie Lee on guitars and vocals. They have recorded 5 albums, travelled around Telford, Bridgnorth, Newport, Cannock and Shrewsbury. Their music consists of music from the 50's to modern day. The Sidekix have produced 5 CD's of their own: 2004 - A Kick Inside 2005 - Laterz (featuring 2 original songs) 2006 - Teenage Kix 2007 - Homecomin' 2008 - 5ive and Counting (featuring 1 original song)
The Sidekix began in 2003 after soloist ‘Robbie Lee’ and KJ/DJ ‘Gary ‘O’ decided enough was enough of their respective solo projects, Robbie didn’t want to just be a solo singer and wanted to pick up his guitar again and Gary was looking for an adventure beyond doing karaokes and discos so then The Sidekix was born!
Gary has been around for years in various bands and other projects, most recently as part of the reformation of Wayne Tulsa's Satellites along with Jim Onslow, Simon Tomkins and Bish on the drums. Robbie however had been part of top Telford duo 'Back 2 Beat' between 1998 - 2001 with Rich Farmer who now plays a big part in the Heart Tribute band 'Heart-UK', also top new Staffordshire band '4 A Reason'. After Back 2 Beat split up Robbie and Gary 'O's became good friends.
