The KBC or Kantner-Balin-Casady Band was formed in the mid-'80s by three former members of Jefferson Airplane: guitarist/singer Paul Kantner (b. March 12, 1942, San Francisco), singer Marty Balin (b. Janurary 30, 1942, Cincinnati), and bassist Jack Casady (b. April 13, 1944, Washington, D.C.). The group was filled out by Mark "Slick" Aguilar (guitar, vocals), Keith Crossan (saxophone, vocals), Tim Gorman (keyboards, vocals), and Darrell Verdusco (drums, vocals). The KBC Band released one moderately successful album in 1986 before breaking up. ~ William Ruhlmann, Rovi
