gigglejuice with Tim Sparks, at WESU 88.1FM

Founded in 1992 by the barefoot guitarist, drummer, lyricist and singer Kevin Day,gigglejuice has been refined and distilled with the help of John "hig" Higgins on saxophone and flute, Brendan Kearney on bass, Juan Rivera on the kit, as well as chill-i chilleye chill-m on bongos, djimbe, percussion and didgeradoo. With cross currents of David Lowery, Bob Marley, Elvis Costello, Sonny Rollins and Jerry Garcia, gigglejuice has a little of something for everyone. Pointed lyrics by K.Day are sprinkled over rhythmic world beats and splashed with the spice of wandering flute lines and mystic bass tones. Weaving a tasty choice of improv blues and jazz with velvet smooth overtones and a jammy finish, we are thrilled to present such a creative line up of original music.

gigglejuice offers a potent mix of acoustic and electric sets, taking listeners on a surprise laden ride with each performance. Will K.Day be chucking chords on his guitar or sending out seismic rifts on the drums? Will Hig play tiptoe on his flute or will he sax you up? When will Chill-i put down the djimbe and pull out the didgeradoo for a sound fest which is over 30,000 years old? What surreal narrative will KevinDay think of next? Will Brendan rattle the walls with a sub-sonic blast or will he offer a cosmic trip along an extended bass solo? You never know until it happens.
