Kid Conch ~ Gulf Coast Rock
Kid Conch’s music is based around one main ingredient~ his signature southern-fried guitar playing. Having started at the age of 12 in the mid 70’s, the music in his blood is part British invasion, part Southern rock, part Latin, part Caribbean, and part Mediterranean. It blends Americana and Tropicana, country and western, reggae and calypso, Cajun and blues, R&B and soul, and rock and roll into a spicy musical gumbo.
Kid Conch ~ Radio and Web
Kid Conch’s CD “Sunny Side of Life” has chalked up plenty of airplay on multiple broadcast and internet radio shows including being in rotation on X Key West, Tiki Island Radio, Beachfront Radio, Songwriter’s Island, Island Time Radio, Permanent Vacation Radio, Lonesome Cowboy Radio Show, Rock Under the Radar, and many more. The Kid has been also been featured on (link hidden), (link hidden), and many others.
Kid Conch ~ Live Performances
Kid Conch is as comfortable fronting a large show band with an electric guitar as he is strumming an acoustic guitar at a sidewalk cafe. There’s nothing the Kid would rather do than spend time with his friends and fans in an intimate setting whether around a firepit on the beach or a or a tiki bar by the pool, entertaining and spreading joy. But he also likes to rock a big stage every now and then.
After spending 6 months on the road over the summer of 2013 and then 6 months “wintering” in Key West, Kid Conch is now back in “the other keys” settling down on a little sandy stretch of paradise called Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida. (Anna Maria Island forms the southern “lip” of the mouth to Tampa Bay.) If you’re in the area, keep a look out. He’ll be booking steady shows soon. You’ll also catch
him from time to time at Florida’s world famous beach clubs such as Whiskey Joe’s, Dockside Tropical Cafe, and The Navagator.
I play a wide variety of music with either a tropical theme or in a tropical style. Southern-style country rock to reggae.
