We’ll be right down the street in West Broad Village, Short Pump. Come early for dinner and stay for a taste of the sweetest rock n roll you’ll ever hear!
“This opens up a world of opportunity,” said guitar player, Dan Derkits, “Now we can play songs with keyboard parts we couldn’t consider doing before. And because Bill can also solo, it allows me to take a backseat once in a while, which is great for variety. It really takes our musicality up a notch.”
Lloyd and Bill previously worked together in Moe’s Garage until the band dissolved due to members pursuing other interests. Rather than cancel the upcoming gigs, Lloyd suggested a team up with KKSD to finish the dates.
“When we played the first notes of our first rehearsal together it was a revelation.” Bill said, “I knew this was the sound we needed to take it to the next level. Now that we’re at this new place, I don’t want to go back … and that’s saying something because I’m really whiney about carrying all the keyboard equipment.”
Kristi Kream also enjoys the new lineup. “Our first gig together at Bdubs was probably the best we ever had. Between Lloyd’s bass fingers and Bill’s organ I’ve never had it so good. And with the extra vocal support I’m never left hanging out there alone. Lloyd’s experience really adds to the group dynamic.”
Lloyd admits to being pleasantly surprised about how well his new gig is turning out. “I’ve been in a lot of musical situations in my life and they have all been different. This is a fun and hard-working group. There are always better players out there, but with me on bass and Bill on keys we are playing from a position of much greater strength. It’s not a question of if we will be successful, but when.”
“BILL’S GREAT, LLOYD’S GREAT! WALL OF SOUND! … DRUUMMS!” said drummer Stephen Gwyn.

One day in March KRISTI KREAM and the SUGAR DADDIES dragged their equipment into Nowhereland Studio. Paul Lusk, the engineer, pressed “record” and KKSD started playing. That’s how it went all afternoon, song after song.
The tracks were laid down live from start to finish just as they were played. Paul dressed them up a bit — not in formal wear, but more like throwing on jeans and a t-shirt and leaving the house.
The result is one moment in time — an organic, immediate and unadulterated snapshot of KKSD in 2014. Not where we’re going, not where we’ve been, but where we are right now. It’s our musical journey. Come along for the ride.
