The word KANSAS is a native word meaning “People of the south wind” and the word STONE a solid and hard substance, matter of which rock is made.. A solid group of hard working people that love the summer and the warm southern wind…The idea and name KANSAS STONE was in front man Brian Vain’s head for many years. It wasn’t until Brian brought a list of songs to one of his best friends Matt Davey that the idea really formed into this music train named KANSAS STONE.

Though Kansas began as a fun project for Brian and Matt it quickly escalated. Having said this, the two quickly set out to form a band of like minded musicians who want to try something different. With most of KS’s members coming from different backgrounds in music it quickly became clear our distinction would come from the mix of elements each member would bring forth.
