Heleos is a rock, blues and jam band that plays originals and covers.
Kevin grew up in New York and started music at an early age. He started as a jazz sax player. Kevin started playing guitar in his 20’s. “I wanted to play the blues guitar to express my deep sorrow from the death of my twin brother” “The guitar has always been the way I express my feelings” “The songs I write have many meanings. Some are about my loneliness, my love and appreciation of life and some are about fictional characters with a twist”
Having been born in 1955 in Nazareth, PA ....I grew up as "the times they were a chang'n". I was fortunate to be in a musical family and an area that enjoyed and promoted music in schools, on college campuses, in the bars and concert venues. The bands I played with during and after High School, typically had 2 booking agents booking jobs for 20% of the take, and we played many different gigs including bars, frat parties, private parties, weddings, etc.. Obviously the bands that played for the audience got booked the most....a lesson learned early in those formative years. From there I moved to Nevada City, California. A Pennsylvania boy in the wild wild west, skinny dipp'n, playing music, learning hand drums- Afro Cuban rhythms....Yeeee Haaaa.. From there up to Central Oregon to raise a family and now grand kids. I've been fortunate to play with some really great musicians in the Northwest - California, Oregon and Idaho and now here I am fortunate to be playing with Heleos. See you at the next gig.
Started out as a young child playing the accordian, switched to guitar and played off and on for many years. Finally realized that my voice was with the bass guitar. I find it a great joy to be a supportive member of a strong rythm section. I've been influenced by many different bass players from early classic rock to modern jam music.
