First Fridays: Live Music from HiFi2WiFi
December 6, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
HiFi2WiFi started their journey in 2006. Matt Kennedy (Guitar and Vocals) met Tim Gardner (Lead Singer/Drums and Lead Vocals) and the two quickly became friends. They decided to form a band, but not just a regular bar band. They searched out and found Josef Szaday (Bass Guitar) and with a keyboardist and sax player on board, they started rehearsing and playing gigs around South Bend/Mishawaka and Southwestern Michigan.
After a few years playing around and developing their own sound, a few personnel changes were in order. Joe, Matt and Tim knew the direction that their sound was taking them. Three musicians that shared a love of bringing live music to the people. Melding a love of playing live music, creating new music and re imagining old and new favorites a new band emerged in 2010, and with a new band, a new name was needed and HiFi2WiFi was officially born.
With the addition of Bill Cover(Auxiliary/Latin Percussion) HiFi2WiFi found what they needed. Although Bill doesn’t play every gig with the rest of the group, his influence is still felt when the trio grooves. The group has played from Chicago to Detroit and regularly perform in Goshen, Mishawaka and South Bend Indiana as well as St. Joseph and Kalamazoo Michigan.
HiFi2WiFi fuses Classic Jazz with R&B, Rock with Soul, Pop with Funk, what we call grown up music.
