GUITAR AND VOCALS
VOCALS AND PERCUSSION
PIANO AND VOCALS
The Band was first conceived in 1981 under the name of THE EMBERS, and our first gig paid
a handsome sum of $200 for a four piece Band.
As time went on, Kevin and Chris were the only original members remaining, so a Band name was suggested by a new Keyboard Player in 1990, and the STATE OF MIND Band was born.
ROSS MULLINS joined us in 2013 after the passing of our previous Keyboard Player, John Houghton, who had done a fantastic job throughout the years, and who will always be fondly remembered.
Ross has performed in many Bands, and has become a Recording Artist with his own style of Jazz and original lyrics, producing a handful of Albums to his credit.
BRUCE KING has been with the Band for a few years now. He is one of the greatest Drummers, respected for his brilliant time keeping and professionalism, playing alongside many famous entertainers throughout his career.
KEVIN ROWLANDS grew up listening to the Shadows, and his style of playing reflects that in many ways. A purist, demonstrating his love of guitars through his extensive collection, he is also a strong Vocalist in his own right.
CHRIS ROWLANDS was influenced by the sounds of Elvis, but has enjoyed covering many genres and styles of music, as a Vocalist and Bass Player, from Jazz to Pop, and, of course, Country Pop music.
LYN KENNEDY is our Female Vocalist. She is in her 6th year with this Band, previously performing with other Bands, and has gained much experience over this time to be an integral part of the Band, with her love for Country/Rock and Rock N Roll music.
