KTB (Killin' the Blues Band) Power trio, you say? Killin’ the Blues has all the power you want, and musical diversity in spades. At a typical show, you will hear covers of everything from John Lee Hooker to Zevon, P funk, Tom Waits, The Stones, Cream, Aerosmith, ZZ, Bill Withers and aaaall the way up to and including the Ramones, Sabbath, Alice, Van Halen and Motorhead. Then, at the drop of a hat, they’ll break out the acoustics and hit you with favorites by the Beatles, Neil Young, Cat Stevens and more. And then they’ll play some originals, both electric and acoustic, that will get your feet a-tappin'.
