Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band
Megan Jean and the KFB, or Klay Family Band, arrange a demented blend of americana, punk, dance, and the avant-garde that they’ve taken to describing as, “a metal band, if it was 1927.”
Inventive percussion, electrified banjo, and a voice like the Devil Herself have earned Megan Jean and the KFB a dedicated following all over the East Coast. Calling the road home on a “never-ending tour,” this transient married duo has taken their nomadic musical lifestyle and transformed it into a kind of Voodoo that unites scenes, fans, and musical styles. This is a band that lives to perform, and is fueled by sheer guts and know how.
Southern Charm & Detroit Grit is the essence of this Americana duo. Their music grips both northern and southern Americana roots, blending grit and self reliance with hospitality and charm. Across the United States, they’ve played for small crowds in smoky bars and large concert venues for hundreds of people. They present their songs to welcoming audiences at hospitals and intimate house concerts. Whether on the radio or performing at festivals, their enthusiasm for music and songwriting drives them to create, “a great vibe and a feel that hits you. There is something really special about what S.G. and Rachel are putting out there.” (Kevin Brown, Ann Arbor, Mich. freelance journalist, University of Michigan associate editor)
