Critics and audiences agree; Kevin's energy, voice, stories and interpretations, along with a great sounding band, brings the music to life. Over the years thousands have enjoyed Kevin's performances and the unique joyful shows he's put together.
Kevin Gray, an award winning performer and producer, has earned himself recognition and praise in regional theatre, including the coveted Perry Award for Best Actor in a Musical (Nick in "Baby"). His role as Narrator in "Blood Brothers" helped win another Perry for Best Musical.
Kevin performs with the Summer Swing 17 piece Big Band (Summer Swing Orchestra - Music that makes you Move) as well as a guest artist with other orchestras. Mostly he performs with the 78 West Jazz Ensemble ( 78 West - Classic Jazz | Facebook) Kevin and 78 West have been together over 20 years and their mission has always been to "give back to the community" by helping create exciting events.
Their Sinatra Tribute Show has had rave reviews (see Testimonials) and it's a great fundraiser for venues seating 100 or more. His recent success creating, producing and performing in a Patriotic Concert for Veterans had over 100 performers and musicians including special guest headliners. It's perfect for venues seating over 500.
One of Kevin's greatest joys and desires is having an audience leave the show with such an abundance of good spirits, that in a few days thousands will be affected by their joyful energy.
