Tim Kane has been playing Bass since he was eleven. At that time, Tim
didn’t know what instrument to play, but his dad (who had never touched an
electric bass before) thought the family needed a bass player, and bought him a
Paul McCartney replica electric “Beatle bass” guitar for $80. Two weeks later
Tim was performing live for a nursing home oldies dance. After a month, Tim had
learned a bit and told his Dad, “Remember all that stuff you showed me about how
to play bass? Well, that was all wrong.” From there Tim developed a unique
bass style based on what he learned from watching people who actually had
touched an electric bass before.
In addition to music, Tim loves spending time with his wife, Jennifer,
hanging out with friends & family, rooting for the Spurs, working out, watching
movies, and live comedy.
guitar & Vocals
Peter took to music early in his life. His parents swear that when he was
about a year old he would stand on the piano bench and play the keys with his
butt. That style of playing didn’t earn him much musical recognition. Peter
figures that by the age of six people noticed that he actually could play the
piano… with his hands. He's always been musically inclined and over the years
has picked up a variety of instruments including the banjo, saxophone & fiddle.
He eventually put all of those instruments down (it’s hard to play them all at
once) and decided to focus on guitar, piano, and vocals.
When he is not playing music, Peter can be found dancing, hanging out with
friends and family, shooting pool or enjoying an occasional round of golf.
As far as Raisin’ Kane is concerned, there are really only two kinds of
music: Good and Great. And they are committed to playing as much Great Music as
the night will allow, from Country and Americana to Classic Rock and Blues.
There is always a new twist and a different spice when Raisin’ Kane covers a
song in a way only they can. As Butch Morgan says, “We never play a song the
same way once.” And the era of the music isn’t what’s important, because “if
it’s great music, it’s great music.” The band's oldest cover, “Hangman,” is
perhaps 250 years old. Their newest song might be an original work that was
born this week. So, whether you are 4 or 94, “we’ve gotcha covered.”
Raisin’ Kane is Peter Kane on Guitar & Vocals and Tim Kane on Bass &
Vocals. Fiddler Luis Cuellar of San Antonio, Charlie Franklin (of Small Town
Habit), and other skilled musicians have been known to sit in with the group.
