Ken Lloyd

The steady groove meister on bass who keeps it all together is Ken Lloyd.

Ken 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.

There is a talented Chameleon playing the drums and that is Alex Ouellette.


He smoothly adapts to any genre he is asked to play.

Alex received his early training from jazz drummers Kevin Norton and Steve Grover.


He is currently pursuing a degree in music at the University to Southern Maine. 

He belongs to the band Junco and takes part in many musical projects in the local area. He adds both magic and a spark of color to Cristina’s Infusions.
