So many young groups and artists get caught up in the idea of making CD's and videos and getting on stage while forgetting to develop their music. That's why it's good to hear some old school kick ass rock and roll played by a working class band that is tight, inspired and clearly having a damn good time doing it.
Kill Van Kull is:
RICK CABRERA -BILLY CARDINALE -VINNIE RASCHELLA -CURT GIVENTER -AL ANZALONE -ALEX MAHONEY
Rick Cabrera - Vocals
Growing up on Staten Island, New York listening to his brother playing Beatles and Black Sabbath started Rick's journey but a chance gift from his uncle, Aerosmith "Rocks", sealed his fate.
He studied with Don Lawrence, the legendary "vocal coach of the stars". Rick comments, "He brought me to the next level. A no nonsense, no excuses, get it done approach, which I put into every performance." His vocal influences are many, but they begin with Steven Tyler, Lennon & McCartney and Paul Rodgers.
Billy Cardinale - Bass
Curt Giventer - Guitar
As a 6 year old bringing down Christmas decorations from the attic of his grandparents home Curt made the chance discovery of a broken acoustic guitar with 3 strings. Shortly after, on single strings he began to teach himself the simple melodies of songs heard throughout the old house by way of radio.
Vin Raschella - Drums
It was growing up in a house where music echoed throughout the halls that planted the ambition to play drums in Vinnie Raschella.
