About Kevin B Winebold

Kevin B. Winebold is a musical director, accompanist, and vocal coach, currently living in New York City.  In New York, Kevin was the conductor and assistant musical director of the first NYC revival of Songs For A New World, presented as an AEA Showcase at the Chernuchin Theatre.  The show was produced by GreyMatters Productions, under the direction of Debbie Slevin.  As a benefit cabaret for Team for Kids, Kevin musically directed Cabaret For A Cause at The Irish Repertory Theatre, an Off-Broadway theatre in Chelsea.  He later returned to The Rep in Frank McCourt's The Irish...and How They Got That Way, under the direction of Charlotte Moore.  Kevin was the musical director/pianist, as well as an ensemble member/tap dancer.  The New York Times said "...the show displays a sturdiness that transcends passing vogue."  Backstage magazine wrote "...pianist and musical director Kevin B. Winebold gives the show comic flair, particularly as he leads the company in 'No Irish Need Apply,' in which humor and bitterness blend terrifically, vividly illuminating the duality of the Irish spirit."

On the road, Kevin traveled with three national touring productions for Prather Entertainment Group.  For Footloose: The Tenth Anniversary Tour and The Wedding Singer, he was the associate conductor and second keyboard player.  Most recently, he was the conductor/associate musical director for All Shook Up.  These three tours added up to over 150 cities, 417 nights in a hotel, and over 100,000 miles on our trusty Air Bear Bus.

International, Kevin musically directed a summer program in Osaka, Japan called Just For Kids, as part of his internship requirement for Elmira College, from which he holds a BA in Theatre.  While there, he taught and accompanied the most adorable children you could ask for, teaching them songs from Sesame Street to Broadway.  An incredible year was spent in Seoul, Korea, working at The Institute of Creative Arts (ICA).  At ICA, Kevin taught musical theatre singing and tap dance to children and adults, during this institution's inaugural year.  When not teaching, Kevin kept himself busy learning to love kimchi, doing a short stint as a host on the national television program What's Up, English, dancing with Jubilee's Hip Hop Dance Team, and appearing as Reuben in Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat.  He also appeared on the cover of Koreana, an international magazine published in six languages.  The cover story was about Korea becoming a multi-cultural society, and Kevin proudly represented America, complete with a leather vest and cowboy hat.

Now back in New York, Kevin is hitting the ground running, filling his days auditioning, coaching, and trying to make a name for himself in the city that never sleeps.  He was last seen singing in the ensemble of the Broadway concert version of Camelot at the Shubert Theatre, starring Jeremy Irons, Melissa Errico, and James Barbour; he also served as the rehearsal accompanist.  On the side, he recently launched his photography business, Kevin B. Photography, specializing in headshot and fashion photography.  You can view his portfolio by visiting the links page.
