Kedar joined the band at the end 2006 and has helped bring the music to the next level. "We share a common mission to make friends and have fun, by playing original hard rock music live and occasionally recording it." After nearly a year of rehearsing, Kedar's first performance with the band was at The Octopus Lounge, in Sept. of 2007. The show was entitled 'THE REUNION SHOW', as it was also J.D.'s return to the 6:AM line up and Kedar's first taste as a head-liner!
Kedar discovered his love for the guitar in 1997. "A friend of mine left his guitar at my place, when we were in college. I fiddled around with it and really liked the way it sounded." Kedar started taking formal lessons shortly there after, and has continued to learn and improve his playing style ever since.
Some of Kedar's favorite bands include GUNS-N-ROSES, PINK FLOYD, LED ZEPPELIN, PEARL JAM, & DREAM THEATER..."And those pretty much mirror my main influences."
Kedar enjoys playing his Schecter S1-Elite guitar. " I love the sound, look, and feel of it." "If you want a reasonably heavy sound, it has humbuckers, the neck isn't too thick for fairly fast playing, and there is no Floyd Rose tuning locks...because if you're like me, I don't have 8 guitars (laying around) and a roadie to have each guitar locked into a particular tuning...THIS IS YOUR GUITAR!"
Kedar's favorite song to perform live is PRISONER... "It's catchy, aggressive and gets us and the crowd moving."
