Founded in 2010 by Michael Matthew Ferrell, Alive & Kickin is the Twin Cities’ premier senior rock ensemble. It began its journey as a touring vocal ensemble of seniors who rock. The rock ensemble is comprised of seniors ages 60-99+. Now, a full decade later, Alive & Kickin has grown to redefine what it means to grow older. Alive & Kickin’ supports and serves our senior population through the craft of music, empowerment of self-expression and the belief that you’re never too old to pursue your passion.
The enthusiastic ensemble has been performing to sold-out crowds at the Bloomington Center for the Arts for several years and tours around the upper midwest to a myriad of venues from the Minnesota State Fair to senior-living communities.
Alive & Kickin gives voice to seniors through personal stories and popular songs, empowering its members to entertain and enlighten multi-generational audiences. The highly inspirational group of spirited and charismatic seniors spread their musical message as they explore contemporary genres of music ranging from rock & roll and pop to gospel and Motown.
