KGB is an all-original rock band from western PA. The classic combination of catchy melodies, crunchy guitars, and a hard-driving rhythm section are the foundation of the KGB sound. KGB released their first full-length CD, Rock and Roll Dream, in June 2014.
“Rock and Roll Dream” draws on the band’s extensive catalog of originals and showcases the diversity of the band’s sound. KGB will bang your head, shake your ass, and have you singing along in your car (it’s OK, no one is watching)… “Rock and Roll Dream” is available at iTunes, Amazon, CD Baby, and other digital music sites.
KGB is led by Bill Vulgris. Bill writes the songs, sings lead vocals and plays guitar. Bill is a veteran of the local music scene and is well-known for fronting his previous band Gibraltar and his current work with Amber-Alexis.
Cliff Rose is Bill’s long-time partner in crime. Cliff has been playing bass and singing backing vocals with Bill since the 80s. Cliff’s running bass lines and vocals are a signature part of the KGB sound.
Drummer Gregg Shotts moved to the Pittsburgh area from Detroit a few years ago and was looking for a project to join. Bill was looking to create a new venue for his originals and the die was cast. Gregg’s high energy drumming drives the KGB rhythm section. Gregg also plays drums for 90 Amp Fuse.
Guitarist Garry Simmons is the newest member of band but is no stranger to Bill and Cliff, having recorded two Gibraltar albums and the Amber-Alexis album. Garry’s hard rocking blues-based style nicely compliments Bill’s country/roots rock sound. Garry is the resident mad scientist in the recording studio.
KGB gives back to the community, playing many Rock For Life benefit concerts that raise money for sick children in the area.
