Kennedy is an explosive five-piece Hard Rock band from North Texas based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex. The band includes lead vocalist Calliman (Callie) Estes, guitarist Derek Sanders. Bassist Blaine True and drummer Darrick (D.C.) Caster.
Callie's gripping vocal ability is a testament to both a high level of musicianship and a life-time of musical training, including guitar, keyboard and percussion. His edgy, emotional lyrics and commanding stage presence make him the perfect front man for this premier ensemble.
Derek is a masterful Musician. His virtuosic, energy-charged guitar riffs combine to form driving chord progressions and complex harmonies. As one of the original Kennedy guitarists, Derek is a staple in the band and brings much to the table both on and off the stage. Creative in personality and performance, he personifies Kennedy’s aggressive ambition.
Blaine’s persona parallels his unique, aggressive stage presence and bass lines. He manages the lanes of the stage like a front man and commands his fret board like a master. An intricate part of Kennedy, Blaine gives a clear look and feel to this ensemble.
The pure raw ability apparent in the intricate rhythmic styles of drummer D.C. propels each song with dramatic authority. Dynamically and metronomically, Darrick Caster performs at an expert level, never missing a beat.
With the success of their highly anticipated debut album “Diaries Vol. 1,” Kennedy represents Dallas-Fort Worth across the United States and the world with a vengeance.
