Billy Kilson's BK Groove is a jazz, funk, fusion band whose music is comparable to Weather Report, Headhunters, Tony Williams' "Lifetime" or Chick Corea's "Return to Forever." Led by Kilson, a Grammy winning drummer, BK Groove is a musical melting pot of their many musical influences. They create a journey through old school funk, fusion and many facets of jazz. As the creative force behind BK Groove, Kilson combines the R&B and funk influences of his youth with his jazz enthusiasm and experience for a fresh new sound.
A former member of the Dave Holland Quintet, Kilson has appeared and/or recorded with many top jazz artists including Chris Botti, Bob James, Dianne Reeves, George Duke, Steps Ahead, James Moody, Ahmad Jamal and Kevin Mahogany.
