Who is Trevor?

A Band Named Trevor is the manifestation of six individuals from a variety of backgrounds and genres. A Blues band with a twist. Fronting ABNT is our own 'King & Queen Trevor' (Brett Hartley and KaseyMcKenzie). They deliver an astonishing vocal combination, ranging from the deep vocal style of Louis Armstrong to the Mezzo-Soprano from Kasey, powerful enough to give Janis Joplin a run for her money. 'Trevor-Axe' (Beggsy) on guitar, is an outstanding musician who plays loud & crazy intricate solos as well as smooth Slide. 'Blowin' Trevor, (Michael Slater) is an accomplished Jazz/Blues saxophonist, who landed in "TREVOR-LAND" from Nashville. He truly does add an edge to proceedings. In the power house on drums is 'Trevor-Stix' (Mark Brown) with the addition of 'Low-down-Trevor' (Tom Raw) on bass, they create Trevor’s heart beat.  A Band Named Trevor has Blues at its roots and a train ride through Country to Rock and back again (Once described as "BLUES TO GIVE YOU NIGHTMARES"). With a combination of unique vocals and guitar/saxophone versatility. This band has its very own sound bringing Blues into the 21st Century.
