Kerry and the OKs were formed in early March 2020, at the very brink of the initial covid lockdown. After incubating the idea and searching for the right members, Jason Sligh began recruiting fellow staff members at Musicology School of Music. The owner, Quentin Roddie joined on drums and Abby Good, on bass. Kelli Udas and Mari Hinckley soon followed as keys and background vocalists. John Laird, lead guitar and background vocals, was the last piece to secure an incredible band, perfectly suited for the task at hand. The task is to take our experience as music instructors and bring a high level Live Band Karaoke show to Huntsville and the surrounding area.
Jason Sligh, aka Kerry, acts as host and liaison to the crowd. The band prepares 50+ songs across different genres and voices. Classic rock, R&B, new wave, top 40, country, punk, and disco – we aim to offer something for just about every taste in the crowd in hopes they will share the stage with us. Experienced vocalist or first-timers? All are welcome and in good hands with The OKs. We share over 100 years of combined experience in live performance and music instruction.
No one is better suited than Kerry and the OKs to ignite your evening, combining the energy of live music and the interaction of karaoke with a friendly host and professional band.
