Kiki Wow

The name? It was either Freaky Kiki - or Kiki Wow. Kiki Wow is very quick witted and a funny multi-faceted performer, Singer/Songwriter/Musician and Host who naturally engages her audiences with humorous stories about her songs and how she came to write them. Kiki has lived the true life of a determined musician who left her small town in Ohio with her band in 1984 to make or break it. The "Sheer Energy" pantyhose converted mobil studio broke down only 35 miles after departure. Kiki remembers, "Knowing nothing about mechanics, we just bought battery and lucky for us, that was the problem. We made it to L.A. and learned the ins and outs of paying to play and tradename registrations, playing with other bands dressed up as teddy bears in diapers at the Roxy, you name it (I think I just did) we paid our dues with lots of mac n cheese and peas and prayers. After 12 years, the band broke up, went our separate ways after producing a 2 day concert at Royce Hall called "Progfest" - a progressive rock festival that kicked ass. The standing ovations knocked us into overtime in paying security and clean up and every other hick up, including our merch not showing up after we bought hundreds of t-shirts. A divorce soon followed and being married to the guitar player, well that band stopped. I miss the music but went on to work for Neil Young's attorney, Dick Clark the legend and then Warner Bros. After a much needed wine tasting trip to Carmel Valley, I got a job and place to live in that one weekend like a miracle from God. Took me out of 20 years of traffic, living under the Burbank flight path where it dumped fuel and unbelievable noise every 3 minutes over my rented house. I settled for noise over traffic - but both could slowly kill you, and I was dying for sure. I quickly moved to Monterey from L.A. where I also hosted a live music webcast in North Hollywood (www.kulakswoodshed.com) for six years and was also a DJ/ Programmer of "The Dylan Hour" for two years at 88.5 FM KCSN. I met so many great musicians that I enjoy promoting them as well. There's room for everybody in the music world....a beautiful audio tapestry indeed."
