More Information on these Tracks!

This section is for those people who are new to Kevin's shows or have never heard him perform and are considering hiring him for an upcoming event. Thanks for your interest in learning more about his show!

The above audio clips are samples of Kevin's original and cover songs. The cover songs give an example of the hundreds of backing tracks he uses for his shows and the original songs give a sample of Kevin's vocals.

What sets Kevin shows apart are the backing tracks he uses for his live show. He produces and records almost all the tracks he uses himself in his studio with some of the best musicians in WNY. They are fun, lively tracks recorded with all the excitement and live-feel of a real band. He plays guitar and sings with these tracks. This is how he sounds like a full band at his shows!

Most acts using backing tracks are using fake sounding MIDI files and drum machines which lends for a more "canned" sound. Kevin's plays along to dynamic, full-band, real-musician backing tracks....

The main benefit of these tracks is it gives Kevin a tremendous amount of flexibility, plus numerous advantages over hiring a band!

    1. The ability to sound like many different live bands in one show! Kevin uses a variety of musicians and bands on his tracks depending on the song. (A band sounds like - well, "that band!" - at each event they do no matter the song!)

    2. The ability to play a huge variety of events. Most bands are VERY limited in their song list and events they can do, and are usually geared specifically toward certain types of shows and/or a specific age group.

    3. Complete volume control without losing the excitement and feel. (most bands are too loud because they can't turn down their drummer! and when they are asked to play quieter, they usually lose the excitement and feel).

    4. More on volume & sound quality - Kevin uses the BOSE PA system - state-of-the art MODEL II (their latest model) which is a major break through in live sound. The sound quality is top notch and sound coverage is superior. It give a much more pleasing sound. It's rare to find acts using this due to cost and setup.

    5. Better blending of instruments - live mixing is not a problem).

    6. More stable performance! - no worries about the drummer messing up or the bass player getting lost!
