The Kevin Townson Group is a Nuevo-Flamenco quartet (two guitars, bass & drums) based in the DFW area of Texas. The groups trademark sound is the classic, high energy Spanish Rumba sound, however they sprinkle in, during an event, the more traditional South American styles such as the Bossa-Nova and the Samba.
The group has released two Cd’s of original instrumental music. Both of which feature original compositions by the groups founder Kevin Townson.
The groups performances are perfect for every occasion: from a small get-together to wedding receptions and large corporate functions and concerts. Also, the group is available for small private concerts as well as outdoor festivals.
Price Range: $300 and up. Depending on the group size
Gig Length: 60 - 180 minutes
