Touring and Recording Artist
Kevin Plays: Sk-2
At age ten, Chicago area native Kevin Zara began his musical career taking piano lessons at his local conservatory of music. After playing with local rock bands during his high school years, he went on to study music at Bradley University in Peoria Illinois. In 1980 he set out touring for several years with his band Sin City, sharing the circuit with Ruby Starr and The Grey Star band. His main keyboard was an 1956 Hammond B-3 and two 122 Leslie speakers. He is currently playing with a classic rock band and has moved up to Hammond’s new portable organs producing the same roaring sound of the B-3 in a much lighter, compact package.
