I recently (finally!) got around to forming my own group. You can check out my new band Kuckaw! Here.
Kuckaw! is a brand spankin’ new band, fresh out of Oakland, California. Members Adam Lowdermilk (Bass), Michael Wynar (Guitar), Casey Cameron (Keys), Ross McIntire (Drums), and Michael Bello (Sax) came together through happenstance in order to fulfill one common goal: to get some Bay Area booties shakin’. The music of Kuckaw! melds the driving, heavy sounds of 70′s funk with the hypnotic, interlocking essence of Afrobeat, a touch of disco, and the unwieldily abandon of a through-composed psychedelic odyssey. Lowdermilk and Wynar, both members of Albino! Afrobeat, combined forces with Ross Mcintire (of DRMS), fresh off the Bayou from New Orleans. Feeling the emptiness of a keyboard-less trio, the three conscripted long time flood pants advocate and all around musical wizard Casey Cameron to lay down an ever-shifting polyester blanket of harmony. Shortly after, the band managed to rope-in thrift store magician, musical genius, and strangely talented devil’s advocate Michael Bello. Together, the five notoriously funkified local heavy-hitters compile an outfit of epic proportions… Keep an ear out for this burgeoning ensemble, bringing the funk to a location near you!
