Kaitlyn Courville Acoustic Duo/Trio- The Trio adds powerful 2 part
harmonies, tambourine, acoustic guitar and bass guitar. Add a little foot stomping and you'll want hear much missing when the three of them comes together. A nice compliment to a budget party or small reception.
The Duo/Trio is lead by the powerful vocals of Miss Kaitlyn Courville. As a young vocalist, Kaitlyn realized that music will always be a part of her life. Even the simplest melody would cause her to break out in song. It wasn’t long before people realized she could sing, and sing she does. Kaitlyn has sung across
the country from Louisiana to Chicago. Always capturing the audience’s attention as the little girl with the voice. She isn’t the “Big Voice” that people tend to label young singers
with, but her voice has an old soul quality with a bluesy tone that captures your attention as a young Patsy Cline with a little Etta James. She sings the classics as well originals off
of her debut cd “I want the Fairytale”.
Kaitlyn is accompanied by the following members;
Todd Matherne at the age of 12 found interest in playing guitar and harmonica. Inspired by his grandfather who he looked up to and had the oppurtunity to spend quality time on the weekends while his grandmother would spend 45's of ole country and 50's rock n roll. He
quickly became inspired to play country music and study the styles of Willie Nelson, Jerry Reed and Merle Haggard. Growing up as a young teenager in the 80's he was introduced to several legacies of both rock, metal and blues. The acoustic guitar was the first style of
guitar he began playing and continues to this day crafting his talent. Todd has performed in several local bands and can be seen with Kaitlyn on the weekdays and his band
"Billboard" on the weekends.
Dennis Young-Dennis Young started playing bass guitar in 1972. At an early age he was always fascinated with the music of the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Led Zeppelin. Then in 1975 he got an offer to play in a horn band. This band was called the Last Chance Band which became the house band for a nightclub called The First Edition in
Gonzales (now the Kabara) This was really a good time in his playing career. Dennis got to cover many different styles. Country,rock,disco and Swamp pop. This gave him the opportunity to be very versatile.
Here are some of the local groups he has played in: Stash, The Last Chance Band, Rhythm Kings, Bustin Loose (Ronnie Melancon) Kenny Cornet and Killin Time, Time Machine, Diversity, and now the Billboard Band. Dennis has also played on stage with some big names in Louisiana Music. Swamp pop artist such as Van Broussard, Johnny Allen , Warren Storm, Dale and Grace, Lil Alfred, Willie Tee, Tommy McClain, Marilee Rush, G.G. Shin, and Floyd Brown.
Top Notch! The newly formed band "Kaitlyn Courville & Top Notch" electrifies all the sounds of the acoustic performance with over 70 years of backing experience. The song selection is a little more upbeat and diverse from the acoustic performances and creates a fully live show. Song selection ranges from Carole King to Colbie Calliet.
