“Pure Kentucky Bluegrass” , best describes the sound of The Kevin Prater Band. Those who pay close attention will hear echoes of The Country Gentleman and The Seldom Scene, especially in high lead vocals and polished harmonies. While those bands were early influences for Kevin and the others in the band, their venture is not about coping anyone.
After years as a sideman with many Bluegrass Legends, in 2009, Kevin made the decision, with the support of fellow band member and Banjo player,Tom Timberlake, to step out on his own and The Kevin Prater Band was formed. Showcasing the multi talented members, both vocally and instrumentally, makes the band a fan favorite. Cole Spears on Guitar, Danny Stiltner on Bass and Albon Clevenger, Fiddle bring years of experience to round out The Kevin Prater Band sound. Additions of Classic Country, Vintage Rock, Acoustic and Gospel music makes each show a unique experience.
