Still Kick'n is a powerful cover band with a passion for classic and southern rock music.


Charles "Beaver" Curo, Lead Guitar and Lead Vocals: A native San Diegan, Beaver always loved music of all types and started playing in bands in junior high school, continuing on through high school and college. In the 70's, he played pedal steel guitar in country western bands at local bars and clubs. Through most of the 80's and 90's, Beaver mainly played for church events. In the late 90's, he rediscovered his love for the blues. For the past several years, he has practiced several hours a day to refine his craft. Beaver joined Still Kick'n in 2006 and has since expanded his repertoire to include the music of Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Doobie Brothers, as well as other great classic and southern rock bands of the 70's and 80's.

Don Weis, Bass Guitar and background vocals: Don was born in San Diego and started playing the guitar at age 10. He moved to Oakland in 1966 where he joined his first garage band. While serving in the Army in Germany, Don and a friend, Rick Trenny, formed the rock band Free Flight, playing mostly military clubs and special service events. After returning to San Diego in 1976, they formed the high intensity show band, Warsong, in 1976, playing mostly original songs at local clubs (Neutral Grounds, Park Place, Baccanal, Spirit Club) as well as military bases and special events. The band also showcased at the Starwood in Santa Monica in 1978 and 1979. Warsong eventually disbanded in 1981. In 1998, Don again hooked up with Rick and other band members from Archer to work on new and old original material. In 2006, Still Kick'n formed with Don, Steve and Beaver.

Steve Brady, Drums and Background Vocals: Steve was born in Escondido in 1964. He has played the drums since 1974 and during the course of his musical career, has played in various bands (Alley Rat, Archer, New York Blade, Blue Dogs and Rusted Soul). Steve played with Rick Trenny from Archer and Don Weis for a short time until Rick passed away in 2006. As a child, Steve's father was his main influence, watching him play with his own country and western band. He was blind but played and sang better than anyone else Steve remembers hearing back then. At age 10, Steve decided that he would be a drummer. When Steve was a freshman in high school, he was voted to play with the senior class jazz band. They ended up earning a trip to Europe and toured in 1980. After high school, he moved back to San Diego and since performed in local clubs in the San Diego and Los Angeles areas, as well as street fairs and private parties/events. His music style has been influenced by the Beatles, Boston, Judas Priest, Iron Maiden, Pink Floyd, Dream Theater and Rush. Steve's equipment are Pearl, Ludwig, Rodgers and DW (pdp series). He only uses Zildgian symbols and nylon tipped sticks.

Beaver met up with Don and Steve in 2006 to just gain some practice time and their band has evolved into a tight group that specializes in southern and classic rock songs.
