The New Kinetics reunite

Plus, ‘Brunch with Bob’ now being broadcast from Catamaran Resort

Last week, The Casbah announced on its website that The New Kinetics, who split up in June 2013, will play a show on April 5, their first in nine months. The current lineup includes singer Birdy Bardot, guitarist Brian Reilly, bassist Joshua Kmak and drummer Jon Bonser. Former bassist Leslie Schulze, more recently of Flaggs, left San Diego last month to focus on a career in air-traffic control. 

When the band initially broke up, Reilly had made the decision to stop playing music, though he says that trying to maintain a 9-to-5 living didn't work out too well.

"I tried to fit in and be a button-down professional, but I guess you don't choose who you are," Reilly tells CityBeat in an email. "You just take what you got and make it your own."

Reilly also says that the band is "back full-time" and that they're working on a new album that they plan to have finished and released before July. 

"I'm glad to be back," Reilly says. "I can't believe it's been just under a year already."


Brunch with Bob, the weekly all-Bob Marley reggae show originally launched on FM 94/9 and currently hosted on Pala community radio station Rez Radio 91.3, will now be regularly broadcast live from the Catamaran Resort in Mission Bay. 

Host Tommy Hough confirms that the format of the show won't change ("It's not going to become a talk show," he says), but the time seemed right for a change of venue. 

"After 10 years, it felt like it was time to add a new element," Hough says. "It's fun to go out into the field, and Brunch with Bob always lent itself well to a live broadcast."

The first live show will air from 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, Feb. 23.
