Alice Sweet Alice are mavericks in the Alt Rock music world, defying any easy pigeonhole. Alice Sweet Alice is a male-female fronted rock band, with at times powerful explosions of metal, delicate textures of piano, earth-shattering drums and an engaging live performance. A UK review for ASA's most recent album “MANDALA”, stated: “It's hard to say what you notice first about Alice Sweet Alice, but it's probably fair to say that Ali Kat's vocals come fairly close to the top of the list. Tuneful and soulful, she is (thankfully) not given to the histrionics found on your average Evanescence album, instead opting for a tuneful drawl in the vein of The Kills or the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, albeit with a significantly more interesting musical backdrop.” Another reviewer in the USA stated: “Now for something completely different. Alice Sweet Alice is nothing you expected, and everything you wanted it to be. Here you will find a variety of melodies and sounds you're just not going to find anywhere else. I discovered something about this CD that I find a little perplexing. My ears understood that I was listening to new music, but my brain was telling me it was something familiar, even comfortable.” And finished his statement with: “As I sat and listened to this CD, I could think of only one phrase that seem to fit what I was hearing, and that is simply, “ear candy”.”
Following ASA’s live performance at the 2013 Midwest Music Awards, the promoter had this to say “Alice Sweet Alice … is without a doubt one of the most underrated bands in all of Kansas City. They have massive popularity Worldwide and they showed why on stage with a monstrosity sound that is full and rich, and with timing that is second to none. The setlist in our opinion was perfect on how each song just flowed from one to the next without having that “trainwreck” feel that you will sometimes get in live performances. Alice Sweet Alice showed exactly what they constantly preach in more words on their Facebook, but that is reach for perfection.”
Alice Sweet Alice received “Best Female Singer”, “Best Alternative Band” and “Best Album” nominations in 2013 with the Midwest Music Awards. Commercial radio station Alice 102 in Kansas City has asked ASA to represent them on their St. Patrick’s parade float in both 2012 & 2013. ASA has had great success overseas, where via their eastern European distributor “AMAdea Records”, Alice Sweet Alice has consistently remained at the top selling status with their entire catalog.
ASA has shared the stage with such notable acts as Adrenaline Mob, Pezband, Mushroomhead, Hurt, Taproot, Psychostick, Nothing More, Shaman’s Harvest, Primer 55, Another Lost Year, and many others.
