Big Kettle Drum is a banjo slinging, fiddle playing, foot stomping, suitcase kicking, slide guitar Americana band.
Having found themselves on the “Best of” list two years running for the Americana Rock Mix, BKD is set to ride that success into the release of their 2014 EP “Lock & Key”. The band’s sound has continued to evolve into a powerful mix of infectious melodies and soaring harmonies while leaning on that foot-stomping backbeat that has defined the earlier incarnations of Big Kettle Drum.
Their most ambitious work to date, “Lock & Key” wanders into the territory of Pop melodies with a nod to the band’s older influences such as The Beatles, Billy Joel and Johnny Cash, with a hint of new influences like Jason Isbell and David Ramirez.
The band is currently on an extensive "House Show" tour in partnership with the Be Brave Foundation. The tour will raise 50 grants for families with children going through treatment for pediatric cancer. For more information visit www.bebravefoundation.org.
