“If Tina Turner and Little Richard had a daughter and raised her with the help of uncles James Brown and Chuck Berry, she’d be like Nikki Hill.” - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Her SRO show in Sacramento last December at Blues and Bourbon Wednesdays at The Momo (now The Starlet Room) dazzled many, created lines of new fans wanting to get a photo with her, and buy her brand new CD, Feline Roots. Her tough band, co-led by her burning guitarist husband/partner, Matt Hill, also features sizzling guitarist and long-time Sacramento favorite, Laura Chavez. Together this band champions the pioneers of roots and rock n’ roll and the blues, soul and gospel that birthed it all.

Join the 5th annual Unsilent Night in Sacramento, Phil Kline’s free, outdoor participatory sound sculpture. Anyone is welcome to join -- the event is family and dog-friendly. It's also an all-weather event --  it'll be held rain or moonshine!

Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music in the form of a cassette, CD, or Mp3. Together all four tracks comprise Unsilent Night. The fact that the participants play different "parts" simultaneously helps create the special sound of the piece. Participants carry boomboxes, or anything that amplifies music, and simultaneously start playing the music. They then walk a carefully chosen route through their city’s streets, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture which is different from every listener's perspective.

Join the 5th annual Unsilent Night in Sacramento, Phil Kline’s free, outdoor participatory sound sculpture. Anyone is welcome to join -- the event is family and dog-friendly. It's also an all-weather event --  it'll be held rain or moonshine!

Unsilent Night is an original composition by Phil Kline, written specifically to be heard outdoors in the month of December. It takes the form of a street promenade in which the audience becomes the performer. Each participant gets one of four tracks of music in the form of a cassette, CD, or Mp3. Together all four tracks comprise Unsilent Night. The fact that the participants play different "parts" simultaneously helps create the special sound of the piece. Participants carry boomboxes, or anything that amplifies music, and simultaneously start playing the music. They then walk a carefully chosen route through their city’s streets, creating a unique mobile sound sculpture which is different from every listener's perspective.
