KickBack Boston fuses millennial socialization with eats, drinks and crowdsourced turntable choice.



 / KickBack Boston was founded by two visionary, creative and passionate Bostonians, with one main mission – bringing together like-minded individuals who are tired of the same-old routine nightclub environment with long lines, overzealous VIP crowds and the monotonous Top-40 Serato-filled play lists.

But instead, The KickBack cultivates an organic and unpretentious space where a gathering of chill millennials can eat, socialize, take back a few drinks and vibe-out to a diverse rotation of live DJs.

The KickBack Boston events are hosted on a Wednesday evening in premier and emerging locales throughout the city of Boston.

The KickBack is only a 3hr event from 8p-11pm, and the agenda follows as such: 8pm – Party Starts // 9pm-10pm – People’s Choice // 10pm-11pm – DJ Set // 11pm – Party Done. Our People’s Choice segment is a list of songs our guest request to hear when they RSVP to The KickBack.

The DJ sets the backdrop and creates a mix blend with the selected songs. The choice to request a song closes 7 days prior to the event date which gives the DJ ampule time to curator a vibrant mix.

The first installment of KickBack parties was held on December 23rd, 2015 at Harborside Lounge. The event attracted roughly 220 local Bostonian professionals in various industries including, but not limited to – fashion, music, media, and art.

Since then we hosted our second installment at Vintage Lounge on Wednesday, February 17, 2016 (8p-11p) which was also well attended with 150 guests.

This 2nd installment was our first themed event titled #gotthefeels RnB KickBack edition. We held our 3rd installment on April 20, 2016 and had another solid turnout of 170 in attendance at Ultra Lounge at Ascend Boston.

Here’s a quick rundown of how DJ’s are picked… our guest DJ’s are hand selected by the KickBack Boston founders. We carefully scour the city, and region to seek out emerging talented curators of sounds from electronic Hip Hop to alternative, contemporary hipster R&B vibes.

All events are open format except for our themed editions. For our launch we had Collective Boston’s DJ Yvng Pavl share his vibes with us and our second installment was emerging female DJ Guru Sanaal from Knights of The Round-tables. We hosted our most recent KickBack with Michael Christmas’ DJ, DJ Fresco and  DJ Normz of SuperSmash Broz.

On June 22nd KickBack returns back to Ultra Lounge at Ascend Boston to host our 4th KickBack with DJ Real Politikz.

KickBack Boston is anticipating roughly 150-200 patrons to attend. Please share this event with all like-minded individuals who are interested. We really want to build relationships early on with tastemakers to grow the KickBack vibe. We thank you for your time and hope to hear from you soon.

Take care.
