First of all if you have ever seen KES THE BAND live, you would know they could never be booed. They are definitely a force to be reckoned with spreading their brand of Caribbean Pop across the globe like a ‘bush fire’, it is but a matter of time before the band’s name becomes a familiar one in every household worldwide.
KES the Band is a Trinidadian soca band formed in 2005 by brothers, Kees, Hans, and Jon Dieffenthaller and close friend Riad Boochoon. Noted for high energy live performances and the soulful voice of lead singer, KES has captured the hearts of many. It has become one of the most popular and sought after bands in Trinidad and Tobago, throughout the Caribbean, US and Canada.

Kes music is truly inspired by the care-free (‘wotless’), party-like atmosphere uniquely associated with Trinidad’s world-renowned Carnival, the 2nd biggest in the world to Brazil’s ‘Rio Carneval’, where masquerading, dancing and all forms of revelry (debauchery too!) are celebrated by all without regard for race, creed, color, age, class or gender.
“Standing on stage with Kes the Band, and watching women scream as Lead Singer Kees performs is a scene played out over and over again in country after country”

Kes the band’s unique blend of soulful vocals and calypso-inspired melodies, over a fusion of rock riffs and island beats, hints of soca and reggae, can best be described as Caribbean Pop. This style has elevated Kes to stardom, allowing the band to become a household name in Trinidad & Tobago and throughout the Caribbean circuit including Miami, New York, Los Angeles, but also garnering attention from the mainstream market, where they consistently win over audiences with their electric and high-energy performances!
Their commitment to excellence and strong desire to be the best at their craft is what separates the members of this band from many other acts, and has been the driving force for so many years.
