Critics and audiences agree; Kevin's energy, voice, stories and interpretations, along with a great sounding band, brings the American Songbook Jazz Standards to life. Over the years thousands have enjoyed Kevin's performances and the unique 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 as a solo artist, or with the Summer Swing 17 piece Big Band Orchestra, but mostly he sings with the 78 West Jazz Ensemble. Kevin and 78 West have been together over 18 years. Their mission is to "give back to the community" by helping create exciting fundraising events.
Their Sinatra Tribute Show has had rave reviews and it's a great fundraiser for venues seating 150 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 loves is being able to touch the heart of an audience. Connecting with them as they experience a simple tear, a hearty laugh or a rekindled memory is a privilege, a joy and an honor.
