A personal word from Kevin


Back in 1990 I realized that I can’t waste my time working for a company and still try to pursue a career in music. So I studied and kept learning new instruments and found a way to immerse myself in music and still eek out a living. Forming my own bands, teaching, playing in five bands on different instruments, taking pickup gigs and generally making myself available (without missing any gigs) is how I’ve spent more than half of my life and I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
