Meet the members of the Kenton Sitch Band
Guitars and lead vocals
Kenton Sitch is a singer/BMI songwriter /guitarist born and raised in the small town of Saxton, PA. Kenton has been playing the guitar since age 7 and grew up with an eclectic exposure to music including anything from Vince Gill to Prince and everything in between. Writing songs since he was a teenager, Sitch began gigging with a variety of bands playing a multitude of genres but found that the current country music sound best represented his writing style. Sitch stated, “I feel most blessed to be working such a talented band that have become so much like family, and believe me when I tell you that none of this would be possible without the support of my amazing wife, Melissa.” Both the opportunity to open for a mixed group of national acts from both rock and country genres and most recently having SMG Records, Nashville promoting his music to national radio, served as a catalyst for Sitch to forge on in the attempt to fulfill a dream of sharing his music with the world. In closing Sitch stated, “My hometown has supported me so much throughout the years and I would love nothing more than to put Saxton, PA on the map!”
Guitars, backing vocals
A native of central Pennsylvania, Brett grew up enjoying country life and the musical influences of the 80’s big hair bands, the Beach Boys and Worship services at church. Brett began playing guitar in his teens when a man from his church had given him an old acoustic guitar he’d found in a trashcan. Brett honed his skills and began playing guitar regularly at his church eventually joining a Christian rock band entitled “CHoSen” amongst other Christian and Country projects. As years passed, Brett found himself focusing more of his time on family, his teaching career and coaching youth sports. Thinking that playing in a band was more a thing in his past, he and his family had attended a Kenton Sitch solo acoustic event. After the show, Brett’s wife approached Kenton and said “if you’re ever looking for a guitarist, give Brett a call”. As luck would have it, three years later Kenton made that call. Since joining the KSB project, the once dormant passion of performing live music came out of it’s long sleep. The revitalized Brett has stormed back onto the music scene providing all of the rhythm and colorful fills the band hungered for.
Bass, backing vocals and Lighting Engineering
A multi-instrumentalist and copy-written songwriter, bassist Jac was born the son to an Air Force pilot in Hampton VA. Jac unfortunately grew accustomed to moving every two to four years until his family was stationed in Bangkok Thailand shortly after the Beatles came on the scene. Falling in love with the prospect of one day becoming a quality professional himself, Jac performed his first live show in 1965. Growing his talents until, in 1972, he’d formed the band “Illusion” who in their first gig, warmed up the Allman Brothers and Eagles in Tampa Stadium. This began a torrent career touring all over the Southeastern United States where his fortune aligned him in opening gigs with Johnny Winters, Jethro Tull and Mountain amongst many other reknown artists. As a guitarist, Jac was endorsed by Rick Turner Guitars while portraying the great Lindsey Buckingham in the Nationally signed Fleetwood Mac tribute “TUSK”. Having played essentially everything there was to play, Jac found he had to re-invent himself, as he’d done so many times before, by crossing over into the contemporary Country industry where he’d aligned forces with Kenton, Randy and Brett to quickly become a dynamic juggernaut in the regional country scene.
Drums, Percussion and Sound Engineering
Joining KSB in February 2023, Randy Servello, born and raised in Altoona, PA, began his professional drumming career at age 11. Formal studies from age 6 prepared him for his 22 years of service in U.S. Army Bands which allowed him the opportunity to perform in countries from the Korean peninsula to Europe and culminating with his final deployment to Afghanistan with the 10th Mountain Division Band out of Fort Drum, New York from 2006 to 2007. Upon retiring from the Army, he moved back to his hometown of Altoona.
Influenced by, and experienced in many diverse styles, Randy has become a “first call” drummer for many musicians needing a reliable, last minute professional to fill in on short notice. He was once called upon to help out Nashville’s gold record selling artist Josh Gracin with only 10 days notice. He’s supplied the beat for bands sharing stages with artists like Grammy Award winner/Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dr. John, Grammy Award winner Del McCoury, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member Bernie Worrell, as well as Steve Kimock, The Clarks, New Riders of the Purple Sage, Anders Osborne, Devon Allman, Cyril Neville, The Smithereens, Dopapod, G Love and Special Sauce, Eric Lindell, Chris Higbee as well as numerous other national and regional acts. Randy’s ability to quickly adapt to the feel and groove of other rhythm section players, like Jacco, makes him the perfect fit for The Kenton Sitch Band!
