The BK Project started early summer of 2013 with two old friends deciding to break out our acoustic guitars and jam. Kevin had played with several rock bands locally and I had been content playing at home, taking songs I have known thru the years and adding our own arrangement. When we first played together, Kevin found my style had some roots in the blues, that I never played a song the same way twice and I changed tempos to how I felt that night. Kevins roots was playing rock and roll with other band members, where he maintained song structure, timing and enjoyed wailing on his guitar. Kevin enjoyed the free form of my arrangements and I liked that he added structure to our songs. And so it began. We learned from each other and found we had our own way of telling a story to music. So, we have taken songs from as far back as the 20s' to current, added some classics, a touch of country and of course the blues, and made our own arrangements which we believe gives us our own "style". We play for the love of music, the beauty of the words and the way we" hear" the song. We hope you will find our "style" enjoyable. The greatest compliment we have heard is, I love how you guys made that song your own...Bobby D & Kev
