Shon McKee

Las Vegas drummer Shon McKee is a thirty year veteran of the music industry. His first paying gig happened when he was just 15 years old. Since then he has had extensive touring in the US, many recording sessions, and spent a few years playing in the Las Vegas show, Country Superstars.

Shon currently plays with the Stoney Curtis Band and is a popular sub for many different bands around Las Vegas. In April of 2008 he had a mind blowing experience when he got the opportunity to play with his all-time favorite band, KISS! Several years later in March of 2013 he performed with Alice Cooper and Sebastian Bach at a fundraising event in his home state of South Dakota.

Another of Shon's passions is helping kids get into music. He is currently active in the first and only music program with the Boys & Girls Clubs (Brennan Rock & Roll Academy) and is a co-founder of an annual charity event in Las Vegas called KISS Night in Las Vegas which raises money for the Clark County School District's music program.

Stoney Curtis Band

This is one of those rare times when you can almost judge a record by its’ cover. From the title “Cosmic Connection,” and the band’s psychedelic logo to the moody front cover depicting Stoney Curtis in the cosmos, acid blues fans will know to expect something great. The Stoney Curtis Band has been working the clubs between Los Angeles and Las Vegas, for nearly ten years, honing their own brand of psychedelic blues rock, readying their show for the road ahead. Over the past few years the band has done four USA tours and four European tours as well. Heavily steeped in 60’s/70’s psychedelia, the Stoney Curtis Band has translated the energy of their phenomenal live show into the grooves of their second Blues Bureau CD “Cosmic Connection.”

While in Europe after the release of the band’s prior CD, they were aired on one of the biggest music television shows in Europe, “Rock Palace” who previously has treated viewers to live performances by other blues rock greats such as ZZ Top, Johnny Winter, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Joe Bonamassa to name only a few.
