KevoCantDance is an Indie/Pop-Punk/Folk acoustic music project started by Kevo in 2011.
Let’s take some time and learn a bit more about Kevo, shall we?
Where are you from and when did you get started?
I am from a small town called Huntingdon in central Pennsylvania. I think my interest in playing music really started when I was 11. I was on the school bus listening to some rap metal band on my walkman and this older kid named Brandon handed me a mix-tape and told me to stop listening to shitty music. The mix-tape he gave me had Screeching weasel, Bad Religion, Blink 182 (Chesire Cat days before they sucked!), and just a mix of awesome 90’s punk bands. As soon as I popped the tape in and heard Screeching Weasels “Dummy Up” I knew that’s what I wanted to do the rest of my life. So 15 years and 9 bands later…….here I am ha.
Who are you and who does what in the band?
Hi my name is Kevo and I am the band! I play acoustic guitar and I sing my lungs out :P.
How would you best describe the sound?
My sound is a mix of Acoustic Folk, Pop-Punk, and Indie rock thrown into a blender and pureed into a raspy sound that I like to call “Acoustacore”. My influences are Chuck Ragan, Tom Waits, The Frontbottoms, The Mountain Goats, Justin Sane(Anti-Flag), & Mike Ness.
Dream rock moment (real or not)?
I really wanna headline a show @ The Electric Factory in Philadelphia, I’ve been to dozens of shows there and it would be great to see the view from the musicians perspective. Plus I like to fill beat up acoustic guitars with confetti and smash them on stage from time to time and I think that place would look quite lovely with colorful confetti flying through the air :). So yea that’s definitely my goal within the next year or so, besides that I would just like to go on tour forever (or until the van broke down).
Still got day jobs?
Yes :(…..I work in IT (Ima nerd n stuff)
No regrets…….well maybe that gas station hoagie that I ate a couple hours ago; (my stomach regrets that mostly).
