More About Kevin
Sharing the stage with international and local acts, Kevin Gibson lends his winning drum rolls and kicks to just about every musician on the scene.
Based in Cape Town, but originally from Durban, Gibson’s early life was, surprisingly, spent ducking and diving the limelight.
“I would go by the name Kevin G long before Kenny G,” he chuckles as we chat after his gig at the Mahogany Room. “I also used my middle name, Stewart, in case they found me because I was really supposed to be going to the army. I had to serve; if they found me I would have been arrested.
“During apartheid, it was compulsory for every white boy to go to the army after school. At the time, I was trying to keep a low profile. I was trying to get work, yet I was scared to be seen so it was a Catch-22,” shares Gibson.
Although schooled in music at various institutions, Gibson started out at the Darius Brubreck College in Durban.
