The Kevin Shay Band is primarily a Rock-n-Roll band that has found a passion for picking just the right songs for the right audience. Their huge repertoire includes '50s-'60s iconic rockers, jukebox classics, 70's super stars and power hits, the awesome eighties, and everything else in between -- a little something for everyone!
... and I love to play piano and sing.
Over the last three decades, I've performed across the Northwest of with our '50s - '60s show band, Men in the Making. I still love covering those iconic rock-n-rollers like Jerry Lee Lewis and Elton John, but my repertoire keeps expanding into some really fun generations of music -- songs for just about everyone.
We currently perform at a variety of venues -- clubs, car shows, outdoor festivals, corporate parties, and some fun backyard celebrations. We primarily perform as a duo with Kevin Shay on piano playing bass parts on the left hand and layered keys on the right, and Kevin Sprague providing those get-up-and-dance beats on the drums ... no canned music here. We also perform as a full band with some of the members of Men in the Making as well as some solo performances.
With three decades of performing shows, I have seasoned showmanship and a good repertoire of music for your next event. Of course I play "The Oldies" but also some themed shows (Western Night, 80's Night, Sock Hops, St. Paddy's, New Year's Bash) or a "just because" event! I look forward to hearing from you.
