Profile The KBC Band was formed in 1985 by former Jefferson Airplane (later Jefferson Starship) members Paul Kantner (guitar and vocals), Marty Balin (vocals and guitar) and Jack Casady (bass). Other members included Keith Crossan (saxophone, guitar & vocals), Tim Gorman (keyboards and vocals), Mark “Slick” Aguilar (guitar and vocals) and Darrell Verdusco (drums). Their debut LP, “KBC Band”, featured the moderate hits “America”, which found renewed interest after the September 11, 2001 attacks, and “It’s Not You, It’s Not Me”, which attracted airplay on AOR radio.

The band performed supporting tours from 1985—1987 before Kantner left for Nicaragua to investigate the Sandinista situation. The band did not perform after his return. Kantner and Casady called a band meeting and told Balin the band was breaking up, but did not inform Balin of the reason. Kantner has said that Marty becomes difficult sometimes and was becoming difficult near the end of KBC’s existence. However, Kantner and Casady continued to perform onstage together during Hot Tuna concerts in late 1987 and early 1988, and the three did re-unite with Grace Slick and Jorma Kaukonen for a Jefferson Airplane reunion album and a reunion tour in 1989, along with Tim Gorman playing keyboards for the tour.

After Jefferson Airplane broke up again, Kantner, Aguilar, and Gorman formed a new band, Jefferson Starship – The Next Generation, which Casady and Balin would join once again. As of 2008, Verdusco is a member of Starship featuring Mickey Thomas.
