"Homegrown: Prog-rock works for Malcriado"

For the Malcriado!, it's all about the creative chemistry. The prog-rockers who provide the band's fuel have found a combustible formula for their exploding rhythms.

Everything clicks, said Kevlar, the band's singular-named guitarist who formed the group with bassist Jimmy Black in 2008.

Both guys, originally from the New Jersey shore, met briefly on their home turf and quickly went their separate ways without striking a beat. Following a move to South Florida two years ago, Kevlar learned Black re-located here several years ago.

They re-connected and began a musical partnership tagging themselves as the Malcriado!, a handle they chose because of Black's nickname from his former day job at a restaurant.

"It's Spanish for disrespectful, or spoiled child," Kevlar said. "We made it our own."

The band's gone through several lineup changes. But Black, who lives in Hollywood, and Kevlar, a Fort Lauderdale resident, say they hit on the right mix in late 2009 when Miami-based lead singer Cintron joined their crew. Pino, a drummer also from Miami, came on board in January.

The group is planning a big debut with a double CD due to drop later this year with lyrics that capture life's obstacles and optimism.

"No two songs sound the same," Kevlar said. "It's hard for us to fit into one category. We try to be as diverse as possible."

The Malcriado! will join the big bill of bands playing on four stages at an '80s tribute night featuring originals and cover tunes Saturday at Tobacco Road, 626 S. Miami Ave in Miami. Visit or call 305-374-1198.

Kevlar and the guys return to Tobacco Road on Sept. 4, then hit the road statewide. Catch them at their next Broward County gig with a concert celebrating Jimmy Black's birthday Sept. 24 at Crazy8's Sports Lounge, 4 W. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Go to or call 954-523-7159.

Still working on that hot first release.



The Malcriado was formed in the summer of 2008 by bassist Jimmy Black and guitarist Kevlar in Miami Beach, FL. At their first jam session, they both immediately meshed with one another musically, developing a rarely experienced creative chemistry that has continued to grow and develop over time. Drawing from such influences as Led Zeppelin, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Jimi Hendrix, and the Rx Bandits, The Malcriado carries on the rock tradition of feel, passion, and expressiveness to let their souls bleed through their instruments to produce a unique style of sound. After acquiring vocalist Cintron and drummer Paul Pino in later part of 2009, The Malcriado has taken the South Florida music scene by storm. Residing in Broward County, and re-igniting a local rock community that has been somewhat dormant in recent years. Guided by the managerial prowess of managers Mindy McConnell and Mark "the Shark" DeGaeta, The Malcriado is striving to have their music heard and enjoyed by as many listeners as possible, while simultaneously maintaining the genuinity that makes them so special in the first place.
