Kick the Hobbit String Band formed in September 1999 in Waukesha Wisconsin. Brad Odland recently relocating to Waukesha from Madison, renewed an old musical collaboration with Kirk Williams. Their musical adventures date back to 1991 when the two formed the core of Frozen Soul, in Cable, Wisconsin. Frozen Soul was an all original alternative rock combo that destroyed much of Cable and contributed to the delinquency of area youths.

Kick The Hobbit's music is an experimentation with the sonic capabilities of the string band format. Extending the traditional sounds of bluegrass with contemporary ideas borrowed from blues, modern rock and jazz, Kick the Hobbit carves out new territory.
