We have two new Governors that we’d like to introduce to you all. Meet them in person tomorrow night (Wednesday, 11/27) at Double Door for our Black Wednesday show with John Charles Weston, Boots with Spurs and Hawthorne Effect.
Kenny Krus – Bassist
Kenny hails from the cornfields of northwestern Illinois, where he grew up listening to punk rock and other uproarious noise. He likes long walks in the cold, coffee and acting cantankerously.
Some of Kenny’s favorite bands are: Captain Beefheart, The Bee Gees, LCD Sound System, Operation Ivy, The Tallest Man on Earth, Bad Religion, Kodan Armada, and Ghost.
Associated acts: Heroine Jane, The Price is Life, XoXo and Bambi Raptor.
Luis Rodriguez – Lead Guitar
Luis has been across the globe and back, gathering influences from the different countries and cultures he lived in over the years – Mexico, Venezuela, China and the US.
Originally from Mexico, Luis began his musical career on the piano, quickly picking up the guitar and the drums. While in High School, in China, Luis started a band with his brother, playing shows in the Shekou, Shenzhen area, near Hong Kong. Luis went on to college in Colorado and moved to Chicago to pursue his musical goals.
Some of Luis’s favorite bands are: Bloc Party, the Arctic Monkeys, Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Blink-182 and Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl has been a huge influence on Luis’ music career, so much so that on occasion, when he’s feeling stuck in a song, he asks himself, “What would Dave Grohl do?”
Associated acts: LHC, at Zero and Day43
We’re super excited to announce Kenny and Luis and we’re looking forward to all the good things coming up in the future. We look forward to seeing all of your beautiful faces soon. Thanks for all of the support!
