The Next of Kin


We are a professional music group that has combined years of experience and individual talents to provide you with the very best in live entertainment! The band performs Country and Classic/Southern Rock Favorites.


The Next Of Kin is a band you must see. They hit the stage with such style and intensity that they make you feel like one of their friends.

They blend their Southern Rock roots with their "New Country" to create a style of music enjoyed by everyone that hears them.

Ed White formed The Next Of Kin in 1980 as a Southern/Classic rock band performing throughout Texas, Arkansas and Mississippi. Rob Massey joined the band as the bass player in 1984. They soon built a chemistry between them that you can feel when they perform together on stage.

In 1992 Ed moved to Nashville to pursue a solo artist career. He became a songwriter and demo singer with other well known artists in Nashville.

In 2000 the band reformed again and with Rob living in Atlanta, they began playing a circuit between Nashville and Atlanta. In 2006 the band recruited Darryl Meadows on drums and Ed Fogg on saxophone, keyboard, backup vocals, and synthesizer. They perform throughout the southeast playing clubs, events and private parties in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama, and North Carolina. They have even performed in front of Gov. Sonny Purdue of Georgia.

The Next Of Kin are still playing Southern/Classic rock tunes, as well as Country songs from their current C.D. "No More Broken Hearts". The songs are written so powerfully and from the heart that you can feel their meaning in such songs as "Heart Of An Honest Man" (a motto that the band lives by), "Little Love Factory", "1935" as well as "The Hostage". They are currently finishing up their new C.D. "Just Yesterday and Today" due for release in late December 2006. With powerful reviews and great attention brought to the single "Just Yesterday" which went #1 on Indie 104.7 FM in Los Angeles California earlier this year. It has been featured on The Radio LIA show with a whopping 76.5% approval from her nation wide audience.

The new C.D. Just Yesterday and Today promises to be an even bigger hit than their first C.D. with the same attention to detail and determination, the band keeps their music close to the heart as you will soon hear in songs such as "As Far As Your Memory Goes" written by their good friend Casey Beathard, "No Way Around It", "Phoenix Arizona" and "Goodbye Nashville". And the those southern rock roots really come out in the song "Nobody�s Ugly after 2am". These are just a few of the powerful songs you will find on their new album that is sure to make the country stand up and take notice to this very talented band from the south. Is this band the next coming of The Marshall Tucker band? You decide.

So sit back take a listen and you�ll soon see why The Next Of Kin�s performance creates an atmosphere that all audiences love to sing along with and dance to.
