So, what do you do on a “regular scheduled” band weekend, when a the whole band can’t get together due to conflicts?
Well, Kerry and Bert took the opportunity to work on some original material!
We are only shy of a couple additional takes, to finish the upcoming new, all original KayaMBeE album, and two of the songs we’re focusing on needed some attention on the vocal side of things. What we’ve worked on today is one of the many parts of the upcoming total “EPIC” song, which is called “Eden under Construction” and will be the most progressive song we’ve recorded to date.
After a wonderful and exhilarating rehearsal last night, where Kerry demonstrated the awesome features of his new purchase, we had an amazing and super funny (as usual) Saturday morning with plenty of creative juices flowing. Since we had already decided last night which parts we wanted to work on today, it all came to us like in “the old days”, back when we constantly wrote new material.
Needless to say, it’s great to report that we’re back “at it” again, creating new and original KayaMBeE material.
We’re planning on posting some samples/outtakes shortly, so stand by and watch for more to come…
This is going to be awesome!!!…
Finally all finished and set up (minus a very few minor final touches like attaching logos and some piping etc.) – ready for tomorrow’s band rehearsal, where Bert will use his (pretty much) brand new/finished rig for the first time. This is by far the coolest and amazing sounding rig he has ever built / put together. We can‘t wait!…

Check out our live set in support of the Jammin’ 4 Justin benefit 2020, which took place on Saturday, September 19, 2020 at the End Zone in Kewanee Illinois.
KayaMBeE live – J4J benefit 2020
Tomorrow is going to be THE big day for the J4J (Jammin’ for Justin) Benefit! All the proceedings of the entire event are going toward the Benefit of Diabetes Research.
KayaMBeE will also have a part in this wonderful Benefit event, but due to the current Covid-19 pandemic won’t be able to participate live. Instead, (if all things go as planed and modern technology won’t let us down) our remotely performed “live in the studio” performance will be streamed as well as the entire line up of awesome bands who will perform in this J4J Benefit as well. Keep your eyes out for any posts on J4J’s official FB page with announcements of any live streams etc.
And if you can, please chip in and support this great cause of the J4J Benefit. Hope to see many of you online… 🙂
Drum recording tonight!
Bobby laid down some pretty awesome tracks for our upcoming third studio album.
Looking very much forward to the next opportunity to entertain all of you, hopefully very soon. The “itch” is getting worse by the day… 😎
So totally ready to do something like this again sometime soon…
Let’s hope that these crazy times will be over very soon…

Stay tuned, friends….
Let’s welcome “Net” to the KayaMBeE family of instruments!
“Net” is a total beast and quite different from all the other instruments we’ve brought ‘along’ thus far. Based on a basic vintage ‘60s Fender Stratocaster design, with the typical appointments (with slight custom variations in neck shape and fretboard radius etc., though) it sports an incredibly different set of pickups and electronics. You ask “why? what’s so different or special about this one?”
Well, the only little hint we’re giving for now is “think Radiohead”!
Check “Net” out at the next KayaMBeE show and find out first hand why this particular guitar is a total musical wonderland…
