CRISP’s humble beginning’s date back to August of 2013, when Elburn, IL native Kevin McMahon (bass player/band leader/composer and arranger) moved back to Illinois after a living in New Orleans for the previous five years. Upon his return to the Chicagoland area, he had a goal in mind; to assemble a band of like minded, talented musicians to compose and preform original Funk/Jazz/Fusion music, in a time when DJ’s and tribute bands rule the landscape of modern nightlife entertainment. Kevin is honored to have secured the talents of Stewart Ream: Keyboards/Vocals, Constantine Alexander: Trumpet, Ian Letts: Saxophones, Joel Ream: Guitar/Vocals, Jerry Williams: Saxophones, and Greg Essig: Drums, to CRISP’s line up of sensational musicians. Over time, CRISP has come to embody Fusion driven composition with open improvisation. Or as we prefer, PROGRESSIVE FUNK with WEIRD LYRICS…ENJOY
