Kevin Cortes – Drums, Percussion, Vocals, Sound Engineering


A pretty unique story - this fellow. Kevin never showed any interest in playing musical instruments. Many times his dad and brother would ask him to sit on the drums and try to maintain a beat while they jammed on the guitar and bass. Each time, Kevin refused and just sat around to listen. For reasons unknown, one day he jumped on the drums in the middle of a song and played as if he had been playing all his life. His dad and brother stopped playing, looked at him in disbelief, and asked, “Where did you learn to play like that?” Kevin’s answer was, ”During class I keep a beat with a pencil to random songs that pop into my head!” He liked it so much that he started taking classes and learned to read music. He now terrorizes his family 3-4 hours a day with the earthquake sounds detonating out of his drums daily. His biggest influence was the late Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan.
