The Kinzie Affair

The Kinzie Affair


An experimental take on sounds made famous by the likes of Taking Back Sunday, The Used, Brand New, and Relient K. The main focus of The Kinzie Affair is to deliver the most entertaining live performance possible, leaving every ounce of energy they possess on stage.


The Kinzie Affair was formed in 2006 when members Cory Sheppard (vocals, guitar), Ryan Miller (guitar, vocals), and Chance Johnson (guitar, keys, vocals) sought a music project that would mix their alternative rock music roots with an accessible progressive rock format. After recruiting bassist Alex Alldrin and drummer Josh Bacich, the band began booking shows along the west coast, rapidly gaining popularity along the way with their powerful, vocally driven power pop.

Each member has been playing and performing for at least eight years, making them far from being musical strangers. Instead, they are seasoned professionals, perfecting their craft in a way that is inventive and enjoyable for all listeners.

The Kinzie Affair has played shows with such popular bands as Pat Monahan, The Color Fred, Lovehatehero, Augustana, Tumbledown, Weatherbox, Dizmas, and Ace Enders, and continues to draw large crowds in the Modesto area at such venues as Sidelines, The Queen Bean, and Hero’s.
