About Kill’n Smalls

The fall of 2016 saw the formation of a group intent on setting the standard for live music throughout South Central Indiana based on a shared philosophy of creating the ultimate party atmosphere. With a setlist that read like a who’s who of the hottest party rock, dance and country hits of the past 50+ years coupled with a high-energy, interactive visual stage performance, the newly formed Kill’n Smalls did just that packing dancefloors throughout Central, South Central and Southern Indiana.

Early 2017 and early 2019 saw two individuals join and quickly become key elements to the look and sound that has become synonymous with Kill’n Smalls. The group has garnered an impressive resume of live performances with and/or for many popular national recording artists such as The Elms, Brent James & The Vintage Youth, Larry Crane and Tantric in addition to headlining numerous festivals throughout the area. As pictured here, the group was excited and honored to win the Battle of the Bands at the home of live music in North Vernon, Indiana, PhatGuy Sports Bar & Grill.

Today, Kill’n Smalls continues in the same tradition packing dancefloors and entertaining crowds throughout Central, South Central, Southern Indiana, and Northern Kentucky.

Kill’n Smalls is: Ashley Newcomb (Vocals/Keys/Acoustic Guitar/Lead Tambourine), Rhonda Sage (Vocals/Bass Guitar), Nathan Brady (Vocals/Lead Guitar) and Chris Baxter (Vocals / Drums).

Photo of John Milton HayWho was John Hay?

Statesman, Author, Ambassador

John Hay was a great American statesman, diplomat, author and poet, whose political career spanned over 50 years.  He was born in a small brick home in Salem, Indiana, on October 8, 1838.

After John displayed considerable potential in his schooling, his Uncle Milton Hay, who was a practicing lawyer in Springfield, Illinois, took a special interest and sent him to Brown University, where he graduated in 1858. 

In 1860, when John Hay’s childhood friend, John Nicolay, was appointed Abraham Lincoln’s presidential campaign secretary, he was brought on board to assist with the enormous amount of correspondence. 

Hay grew to adore President Lincoln for his goodness, patience, understanding, sense of humor, humility, magnanimity, healthy skepticism, sense of justice, resilience and power, love of the common man and mystical patriotism. Many later noted that Lincoln too, loved Hay as a son and was very attached to him.

In 1903, after years of negotiating treaties, Hay successfully passed legislation that afforded the United States the opportunity to start construction on the Panama Canal. 

Brown University’s John Hay Library was named in his honor, as was the John Hay Air Base, in the Philippines and both his birth home, in Salem, Indiana and his summer estate, The Fells, in New Hampshire, have been historically conserved.
