KMZ is KollectiveMindZ! KollectiveMindZ is a Band made up of, 4 guys from 4 different backgrounds, that come to make a sound that has never been heard before. Because of their Broad adversity in music, They have been challenged to place it in a genre. So, when asked what genre they are in, the response is usually "Beboybluhipfunrockasoul". They then back it up with a show of Originals that display blues, funk, hip flows, rocking guitars, banging drums, topped with soulful singing.
KollectiveMindZ was started by Kristian Davis, Houston Native, in 2012. During the first few years band members were in and out, but the current members have been together for at least 3years. Never the less, no matter who the members were, They continued to rock stages. Going on to play with bands such as Everlast, Drowning Pool, Plain White T's, Tantric, Puddle of Mudd and more!
