While calling San Clemente, CA his home, Kevin Danzig remains a traveling troubadour. Kevin's fans range from age 3 to 83 and he plays a wide range of venues throughout North America, including clubs, concert halls, festivals, college campuses, coffee shops, outdoor arenas, house concerts, corporate events and weddings.

Growing up in a musical family in Southern California, Kevin Danzig has been playing instruments nearly his entire life and professionally since the age of 18.

It was in 1978, however, that he got his first big...rejection, when Chuck Barris, (host of the Gong Show), told him, "Kid, you're too good for this show!"

Over the last 10 years, Kevin has recorded five full length CD's of original material, (four solo and one duo).
