100% Bad-Ass Country. That's all you need to know.
The Kevin McCoy Band had a blow-out year after the early summer release of their début album "Redneck-N-Roll. Our album gained national attention and landed a nomination for Independent Artist "Group of the Year" in the 2017 Josie Awards hosted in Nashville, Tennessee. The KMB was also featured in Cincinnati's music authority, CityBeat Magazine. Other feature articles include the Pinefield Farm Studio & Gallery publication as well as Fair Play Country Music Magazine. Redneck-N-Roll is available on our website as well as iTunes, Spotify, BandCamp, or anywhere else you buy your music.
Following a busy & accomplished year, the KMB is cocked, locked and ready to rock the upcoming 2018 season. Following our début album release, the KMB stayed on the road and plugged in year-round and closed the 2017 out with an explosive New Year's Eve show that would set the tone for 2018. Now, with the busy season in sight, the Kevin McCoy band is poised for a high-octane, balls-to-the-wall summer that's only gonna' get hotter as we go.
This year, we're invading anything and everything looking for trouble. There's nothing too crazy, no venue too small, no party too wild. Complete with an A-list talent roster and a repertoire that screams for something wild and out of control, we're excited for our new venues and the chance to bring a taste of Cincinnati's own KMB to the rest of the country. If you've got a hot-spot and you don't have the Kevin McCoy Band...then you're missing what you really need...100% Bad-Ass Country Music with Attitude. We can't wait to see you!

"Get Your Country On"
Kevin McCoy Lead Singer, Front-man
Kevin was born in Lima, Ohio and started singing in 3rd grade. He’s performed for many crowds including President Bush and has even sung on the Grand Ole Opry Stage! Favorite singers include Travis Tritt and Ronnie Dunn. Kevin plays rhythm guitar, piano and drums. He has always written songs: “the Songwriting process is a way of escaping and a good platform to express myself … with the band it’s awesome to go from what’s inside my head to a finished product.” Kevin has an outstanding live vocal ability and stage presence.
Lee Dixon Lead Guitar
Lee was born in Cincinnati, Ohio and got his musical start in Huntington, Indiana. At 14, his guitar teacher asked him to join his country band and Lee hasn’t looked back since. Not only is he obsessed with his guitar but also plays bass, drums and is a singer/songwriter! He knows a lot about playing music along with the care and selection of instruments as part of the Third Rock Music Center expert team. Lee met Caleb at Live Oaks School and they have been playing together for 25 years. From 2007 to 2010, Caleb and Lee were in a band called “Another Tragedy” with John Chapman as lead singer . In 2007, “Another Tragedy” had a deal in the UK with Zebra 3 Records. Lee met Kevin through Kevin’s band ad in 2013. They hit it off, finding they both had the same vision, enthusiasm and drive. Thus, The Kevin McCoy Band was born.
Caleb "Catfish" Campbell Drums & Percussion
Caleb was born in 1973 in Cincinnati, Ohio to a large musical family. “Mom and dad are Hazard Kentucky royalty and I’m the youngest of six. My two older brothers also play drums. I have always tinkered with the drums but officially started playing when I was 11 when I joined the school band.” The school band was great formal training exposing Caleb to every sort of percussion instrument and a variety of music genres from classical to jazz. At home the music selection was varied as well, from bluegrass, classic country, pop, dance, hard rock , metal and everything in between. At 15, he started jamming with his brother’s psychedelic blues/rock band. Besides playing the drums, Caleb plays the guitar and bass, sings and raises kids and chickens in his backyard. (“Actually my favorite breed is the French Marans because they are so chill and they lay a really dark egg that’s super tasty.”)
Brad Bellamy Bass Guitar
Brad was born in 1976 in Cincinnati and attended Glen Este High School in Clermont County, Ohio. He was in the “Helifino” Band playing a pajama show (and yes, wearing his PJ’s) when he met Lee and Caleb in 2005. Brad has been playing bass for 27 years , can also strum a guitar , dabble in keys and vents on drums. Favorite bands range from Hank Williams Sr to Black Sabbath to Johnny Cash to Blind Melon. He is obsessed with his LP record collection and currently has over 500 albums from floor to ceiling. When not walking a bass line, he likes to ride his Harley Davidson Street Glide motorcycle.
Daniel Lucas Keyboards & Lighting
Daniel was born in Orlando, Florida. “I picked up a snare drum in 5th grade and a baritone saxophone in 6th. At 11, I started learning the drum kit and managed to pick up the bass and lastly, the keyboard. Oddly enough, the keyboard was the one instrument I absolutely hated but would ultimately become my strongest talent.” He adds “I’ve been told I need a filter installed between my brain and my mouth, and I love anything to do with hot sauce, to the point of throwing back shots of straight Tabasco.” (Side note: He wanted a distinctive title because “… I’m the damned keyboard player.” So, to make him happy…)
