The musicians

Marty Cohen, lead vocals and songwriter, and the Sidekicks ~ Ken Rabiroff, vocals, lead/bass guitar and Jeff Sears, vocals, bass/lead guitar ~ have established themselves as one of the premier acoustic groups in Northern California. The band continues to reach new audiences through live performances, radio play and CDs of original music. They were chosen as Premier Showcase Artists at the FAR West Folk Alliance Conference in 2009.

Our history

Since the Sidekicks celebrated their 10th anniversary, they've been performing with renewed energy and gone back to the recording studio. They perform regularly at Sacramento's venerable Fox & Goose pub and other great venues from the foothills (Nevada City and Auburn) to the coast (Benicia). They were proud to be selected again as artists at the Sacramento County Holiday Music Series, performing for holiday travelers at Sacramento International Airport. Their first appearance there was featured in The Sacramento Bee!

Our sound

The band's rich vocal harmonies and distinctive arrangements enhance Marty’s award-winning songs, and the group creates a sound that is an inspired blend of urban folk … with a pop twist.   

They've just released their third CD ~ NO GRUDGES.
Enjoy more music throughout the year ~ come see the band LIVE to catch their new songs!
