What do Vince Gill, Robin Williams, Zac Efron, Betty White, and Kermit the Frog have in common with the band “Boho Chapeau”? They’ve all recorded songs co-written by Kevin Quinn, lead singer/songwriter for the Los Angeles based indie/folk band, “Boho Chapeau”. Quinn’s material has appeared in television, film and commercials, and has been nominated for numerous awards, including an Emmy.
A native of Los Angeles, Kevin has taken the multi-cultural aspects of growing up in Southern California and crafted them into colorful vignettes of the American Experience. “Boho Chapeau’s” sound is earthy and natural, with an artsy edge. Incorporating ebow, a variety of percussion instruments, acoustic guitars and bass, the songs are performed with “perfect imperfection”, leaving space for innovation and improvisation in every performance.
The band also features guitarist George Keller from Monterey, California by way of Tokyo. An Army brat constantly moving during his formative years, GK’s musical muse is influenced by an eclectic variety of music including classic rock, jazz, classical and blues. His first professional experience was long-time accompanist for guitarist George Cromarty, co-writer of the classic “Plastic Jesus” folk song.
Bassist Fred Hammon, from California’s Central Valley, is a jazz influenced musician who also designs and manufactures his own line of Dark Star bass pickups. He’s also bassist for the popular blues band “The Priests of Love”.
Lee Ann Harris, percussionist, hails from Ardmore, Oklahoma, and is a graduate of University of North Texas’ prestigious music program. She is both a seasoned performer and an in-demand session player. Her work has appeared on numerous film scores, albums and television programs.
