CORTLANDT MANOR, NY – Award-winning drummer Kevin Hupp will make his live debut with Hudson Valley band Joe Duraes & The Skills Saturday, June 13, at The Winery at St. George in Mohegan Lake.
Hupp, who has recorded on gold and platinum records, has toured with Eddie Van Halen, Joan Osbourne, Rick Derringer, Iggy Pop and many other top artists. Also an award-winning producer and engineer, Hupp recorded, produced, and provided his drums on Duraes’ first album, “Ebb and Flow.”
Lead singer Duraes said he is “thrilled” Hupp has joined the band.
“He masterfully shaped and developed my sound during the ‘Ebb and Flow’ sessions,” he said. “It just makes sense for him to be the drummer in this band, it feels complete now.”
Other members of the band are Steve Geller, bass, and Rodman del Castillo, lead guitar.
