COIN-SLOT is "live" on:



Prologue I.
Coin-Slot is the brainchild and latest musical incarnation of founder Johndavid “JD” Kerr. With the intention of finding like-minded and committed musicians, JD has auditioned some of STL’s finest over the past several years and has secured a formidable lineup.

But, there were previous incarnations animating the Coin-slot venture, one of which was Peaceable Kingdom, finding various forms in Columbia, MO and Dallas, TX. JD founded the prog-alt Dallas-based band Peaceable Kingdom when he was in law school. By most measures PK did well in the local market, with two notable distinctions. PK stirred some A&R interest (Tommy Gun records and Interscope records) after heavily playing the Deep Ellum and SMU college circuits.

And, he met some of the key management of the LA-based band Tool, whose management team was Zoo Entertainment at the time. PK's music was played for the members of Tool, and it was rumored that Tool wanted to meet JD and the members of PK. (His other brush with music "greats" was meeting AD guitarist Kerry Livgren, the founder and guitarist of the prog band Kansas.) However, family and career commitments brought him back to Missouri. But, the passion to create and perform original music was merely side-showed—momentarily.

Upon return to St. Louis, JD linked up with some lifelong friends in starting up another incarnation of PK and reconnected with this creative font—creating new compositions, listening to the creative ideas of area bands, and auditioning local talent, some of who played in several well-known local bands. But, it was not until he formulated the groundwork for Coin-Slot that things really began to gel. The formula was simple: finding musicians committed to bringing his original compositions to life through collaboration and a like-minded passion for prog-alt rock and live performances.

After exhaustive rehearsals, Coin-Slot is now ready to make the transition from pre-production to that all-important stage of production and is ready to deliver its sonic landscape, which is a blended mix of prog-alt arrangements, technical guitar exploration, sonorous and growling vocals with reachable yet probing lyrical themes, six-string bass grooves and lines, and a jazz-rock percussion tour de force. Coin-Slot’s newest chapter is beginning and the phoenix incarnate is rising from the ashes. Our Influences: Incubus, STP, Rush, Yes, Tool, King Crimson, Spock's Beard, Live, Chevelle, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Jimi Hendrix, Smashing Pumpkins, and many more.
