Music video — Megan Jean and the KFB from Friday night at Growler’s American Grill, playing ‘Little Miss Fortune’
Megan Jean and the Klay Family Band — which means Megan Jean and her husband, Byrne Klay — are a multi-instrumental duo with soul and power.
Megan Jean stomps a bass drum, bangs a washboard with a good groove, picks guitar and sings like nobody’s business. Byrne Klay is equally adept at upright bass and banjo. Meshed together, the two create a show that blew away audiences at FloydFest, which selected the band as its 2012 Under the Radar Contest winner.
This duo has plenty of originals songs — and here is a new one of them, to which I hope to get the title soon. [Update 11:59 a.m. 10.24.12: It's "Little Miss Fortune," which as Megan Jean says at the top, is a new one] But the covers are unexpected, too. They played “Thriller,” “Shoop” and “My Prerogative,” all MJ & KFB style. Fun show on a Friday night at Growler’s.
