"...What a great line-up, such top musicians!" ~ George P. M.


Kurt and Helen Band is an Americana rock band from Redding CT and is one of Fairfield County's most loved. Always a crowd favorite they incorporate various musical styles of rock, folk, country, and blues in its purest form.


Professionally trained Kurt Cihi & Helen Cihi are the lead vocalists who drive the sound with their dynamic and fun energy. Their musical style relies heavily on their two- and three-part original harmonies. This powerful sound seals the deal, and every show is a great, and lively musical experience... however they present: as a full band, or a trio. This couple and their crew have been solidly pleasing audiences in venues both large and cozy.


"We love nothing better than to get our fans out on the dance floor - having a good time enjoying live music!" 

Original music, rock, country, and blues covers, and harmonic compositions lead the band at the front edge. Recognized as one of the leading Americana rock bands in the Fairfield County music scene, these talented vocalists are backed by an all-star band, and feature many first-class guest performers. 

Band members and guest players include well-known, accomplished musicians each with decades of professional credits and recognitions who have shared the stage with icons such as Eric Clapton, Jose Feliciano, Charlie Karp, the Ohio Players, Orleans, the Rolling Stones, Edgar & Johnny Winter, Delbert McClinton, Buddy Guy, Robert Cray, Dr. John, Mark Naftalin, and countless others.
