About

Jeff Davis

After college, Jeff wanted to evolve as a musician. In 2006, Jeff began to take guitar lessons under the direction of David Knorr. Jeff started his lessons on regular guitar but quickly switched to bass guitar and found his niche. While still taking lessons, Jeff discovered a band called “The Rochelle Harper Band”. One night, Jeff went to a local coffee shop and met Rochelle Harper. Jeff was still green on the bass at the time, but Rochelle invited him to participate in her open jam sessions. Rochelle liked Jeff’s vocals and made Jeff a member of her band as a backup vocalist. After participating with The Rochelle Harper Band, Jeff joined a Christian Rock band called “Malachi”. Jeff stayed with Malachi for about a year and then joined a local southern rock band called “Suthurn Touch”. Suthurn Touch wrote original southern rock songs and eventually made an album called Solid. While playing with Suthurn Touch, Jeff had the opportunity to open for “The Georgia Satellites” at The Dock Bar & Grill on July 4, 2009. Eventually, Jeff left Suthurn Touch and helped form a band called “2 Many J’s”. The name originated because a majority of the band consisted of members whose first names began with J. While in 2 Many J’s, Jeff was spotted by a musician named John Swanson. John was in a band called “Caddywompus”, and it needed a bassist. Consequently, Jeff played in both 2 Many J’s and Caddywompus. After the parting of 2 Many J’s, Jeff and John formed a band with Jeremy Figueroa and John Moss – two members from 2 Many J’s. The four rehearsed countless hours in Jeremy’s garage and named the band, “The Gulf Coast KGB” – for Killer Garage Band. The name stuck and became known as the “The KGB Band”. The Gulf Coast KGB played cover music in several bars along the coast. Some of its highlights included opening for “The Molly Ringwalds” and playing for benefit concerts such as “Rockfest for Epilepsy”, “Bikers for Haiti”, and breast cancer awareness events.

History

Jeff began his musical career in choir at Long Beach Middle School in Long Beach, MS under the direction of Martha Houston. After middle school, he went to Long Beach High School and was a member of the Concert Choir and Madrigals under the direction of Joanne Edwards followed by Shane McElveen. In 1995, The Concert Choir toured Salzburg and Vienna, Austria, and Budapest, Hungary. The choir sang in numerous cathedrals and monasteries and had the opportunity to view historical places such as Mozart’s birthplace and sets from The Sound of Music. In 1996, Shane McElveen became the director of the choir. He led the Concert Choir to participate in a competition in Orlando, Florida where the choir won four trophies for superior ratings. The following year, he led the Concert Choir to one of the fondest memories it ever experienced – performing at Carnegie Hall. 

After The Gulf Coast KGB parted, Jeff experienced a traumatic event in his life that caused him to walk down one of the darkest roads ever. Consequently, Jeff turned to God and found a church home that invited him to play on its worship team. Jeff went to a practice session at the church and immediately clicked with the band. In late 2021, Jeff received a call from Captain Bob Wren, a former member of Malachi. Bob stated that he and Larry “Rex” Rexford were in a band called “The Kiln Billys”, and they needed a bassist. Jeff went to a practice session and immediately caught onto the material and joined the band.
