All lyrics, melodies and artistic direction by Cristina
Ken Lloyd is a multi-genre bassist who thrives on playing good music in different styles. He has gigged in Portland- and Boston-area bands for 30 years including driving rock and roll, pop dance bands, jazz bands of different sizes, folkie acts, funk, country, community chorus, church bands and the like.
Playing covers or originals is equally fun for Ken. He enjoys recording as well, including completed sessions and/or videos with Cristina LaPoint-Smalley, Sally Davis, Cuppagroove, Cobblestones, Mainestream Jazzmasters and Gil Donatelli Band and his latest Joan Kennedy Band.
