ISIS was originally formed by the band’s lead singer, Kevin Williams 1990. ISIS started as an original rock band. Touring the East Coast playing their own songs, the band was asked to learn a few covers because people like to hear songs they are familiar with. ISIS watched as its fan base continued to grow as well as their song list of originals and covers.

Over the next couple years and after two albums, ISIS continued to tour the country, sharing the stage with such musical greats as the likes of Kansas, Three Dog Night, Kool & The Gang, Dr. Hook, Little River Band, KC & The Sunshine Band, Starship, Crowded House, Extreme, Bad Company, The Platter’s, Chubby Checkers, Kenny G, Backstreet Boys and many others.

A few years of extensive touring the band went on Hiatus which is when Kevin began playing with a duo in Biloxi Mississippi where Kevin is originally from. With big economic developments and new casinos being built, he decided to move to Biloxi to pursue the lucrative entertainment opportunities waiting on the coast.

Over the years the exciting addition of Kenny James in 1995, Tia Black in 2007, Mark Smith in 2008, Chris Frazier in 2009(from the band Whitesnake, Eddie Money & Steve Vai), Ty Taylor in 2010, ISIS became one of the most recognized bands in the region. Isis has been featured as a house band for different casinos on the Mississippi Gulf Coast over the years such as Casino Magic, Treasure Bay, Island View, IP, The President and the Beau Rivage Casino. During these years, ISIS was named “Best Band on the Coast” by Coast Magazine and The Sun Herald five years in a row.

The bands continued success caught the attention of executives from Las Vegas while performing at the Beau Rivage and in 2004 the band moved to Las Vegas. ISIS became the house band at the Mirage casino for 16 months and then were moved over to the Bellagio for 2 years. During their stay in Las Vegas, the venue where they were the house band was voted "Best place to see Live music" in the “Whats On” Magazine for 3 years in a row.

After 4 years in Las Vegas, Kevin decided to move the band back to Biloxi Mississippi. These days you can find them mostly on the coast or at Coushatta Casino in Kinder Louisiana. Soon Kevin will be opening up his own place called "Woody's Roadside" In Ocean Springs Mississippi and I imagine you can find Isis performing often at "Woody's".

Each member Isis lends a wide range of musical influences and styles to the ultimate sound, and the band can instantly switch gears from pounding rock to psychedelic funk and everything in between. It helps when each member is good enough to sing lead vocals in any other band according to Kevin.

If you are ever interested in hiring them for a wedding, club, casino, convention or just a great party, ISIS delivers. You do not want to miss what some say is, “the best cover band you will ever hear!”.
