The South Jersey based rock band will open the MMRBQ at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden on Saturday.
Blink and you might miss Laurel Springs, a tiny Camden County borough of 1,900 people along the White Horse Pike. But there’s a band with a big sound based in town, and on Saturday, they’ll be on the biggest stage of their young career. Kid Felix, a six-piece rock band made up of Camden County natives, will open this year’s MMRBQ at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden. The show is sponsored by Philadelphia radio station 93.3 WMMR-FM. Although Kid Felix is only celebrating its second anniversary as a band this month, they’ll share the stage Saturday with some rock veterans: hard-rock heavyweights Alice In Chains and Soundgarden, power-pop kings Cheap Trick, as well as Buckcherry and Device. The house probably won’t be near full when Kid …
