Hello KD Nation…
I just wanted to take a minute to let all of our great fans and friends know that I will be saying goodbye at the end of June and stepping down as lead guitarist for The Killdares. It has been an absolute amazing 9-year journey with the band, but I have decided to turn the corner in my musical trek so that I can be closer to my family at home. Believe me, this was not an easy decision to make.
But don’t worry! The KDs have a great new player coming on board that all of you are really going to enjoy! So make sure you continue to come out to all the shows… Read the rest of this entry »
