The Kansas City based band
Switch has been performing in the Midwest
since 2006. Switch features a wide variety of music and takes pride in playing
styles from many different genres. The band stands behind the belief that most
people like many kinds of music, not just one. Thus, no one leaves a Switch
show without hearing a song they like or recognize.
Kim Switch is the band's primary lead vocalist. She returned to rock the mic in
2014 after an 17 month break where she established and still runs a very
successful DJ/Karaoke business. Kim is the original singer of Switch and is
well known for her soaring vocals and her energetic and contagious stage
presence. Switch is thrilled to have her back!
Deano is the founding member of Switch and enjoys "Switching" it up
at each show between instruments. In the earlier years of Switch, it would not
be unusual to see Deano switching between guitar, keyboards, and bass. After
finally settling on bass, Deano is returning to his roots and adding keyboards
to the band once again. In addition to his instrumental talents, Deano's
extensive background in live sound (mixing for hundreds of national acts) helps
to give Switch a warm, professional and dynamic sound. Deano also sings lead
and handles fronting duties. As a footnote, Dean was also voted as the Top Bass
Player 2011 in Harleys and Horses Black Tie and Jeans Awards.
Brian Couch joined Switch in 2010 and has been wowing fans with his
multi-talented skills. Brian plays lead and rhythm guitar, keyboards, bass
guitar and sings lead as well as harmony vocals. Brian is also Switch's music
director and is responsible for arranging the many songs that Switch plays in a
show. Even though Brian is busy Switching it up the whole night, you never know
where he will be - look for him on the stage or out in the crowd.
Rusty Crewse joined Switch at the
tail end of 2010. Rejoining his bandmates Deano and Brian from their days with
tribute 4th Stage, Rusty came armed with his Les Paul and Marshall amp, and
showed the crowds how to rock... and the magic of "The Dream Team"
lives on. Rusty is also well known as Ace Frehley in the Midwest's
best KISS tribute band, KISS ALIVE. Rusty joined the arsenal of lead
singers in Switch with his distinctive style. Be sure to watch for Brian and
Rusty's cross over technique, when they each play the other's guitar
without taking them off. Rusty's commanding style leaves no part of any stage
The name Switch says it all and fits one of KC's most versatile bands. Be sure
to catch Switch whenever you can - you won't be disappointed. Fair warning:
you should arrive as early as possible - Switch shows are usually a
sellout. The band provides a volatile mix of music, energy, great sound, and
the ability to make any event a memorable one. See you there!!!
