This Band Page is called KB Gunn & Friends. I have been asked who my friends are. They are Jay Stern and Steve Webb who together with me formed a 1990's music group called "Ruach". Also, David McMahon sings "Lay Down Your Nets", my contribution to Christian Country music. Also, Everett "Slowhand" Jenkins, one of my favorite guitarists, performed powerful lead guitar in the "Nine Eleven" (demo version) as well as all guitar parts in "Lay Down Your Nets".
KB Gunn has been a musician and recording engineer for so long that he can't remember when he started. He is certain that it was after the advent of the industrial age, but before man walked on the moon. He used to freeze his tootsies in the frozen tundra of southern Vermont, but now resides in south eastern North Carolina. It is so nice to be warm.
KB has a habit of being unconventional when it comes to Christian music because he does not listen often to existing CCM recordings. He does not want to be locked into a formula. He does not see himself as a minister to Christians, but as a minstrel to Christians to be. He has a focus on evangelism, not praise and worship for ministry to the Church. If Christians like the music, that is just fine, but it is meant to bring a lost and dying generation to a relationship with Jesus. Isn't that what it is all about?
KB was raised in a Jewish home and was being groomed to become a cantor. When he was Bar Mitzvah, he decided to leave Judaism and be a rock and roller. At the age of 28, he became a Christian and started singing songs to the Lord after all. Not quite what the cantor and rabbi wanted, but it was what the Lord wanted.
The first 10 songs in this collection are a preview of my new album, K.O.O.K. due out by summer of 2009 in CD format. K.O.O.K. is an acronym for "Keeper Of Outstanding Knowledge".
Prior to solo performance, KB Gunn was a member of a musical group called "Ruach". They toured New York, New England and Canada during the 1990's and had a large following. Some of the music of Ruach is featured on this website and is available for download. The members of Ruach were all of Jewish ancestry and all converted to Christianity. The Jewish style of their songs is a mixture of Klezmer and rock. These songs were recently digitally re-mastered in KB's studio.
