Pat Kiel: Guitar and Background Vocals 

Originally from Whitelaw, WI and now residing in Wrightstown, Pat brings a wealth of professional experience to Alive Again. After touring the Midwest in bands such as The System, The Visitors, and Champagne Jam, Pat joined forces with The Groove Hogs, a popular 10-piece horn band that produced 4 albums and played shows throughout the U.S. and Canada. When Pat plays, all of that previous experience comes to life through the notes and riffs he plays, seemingly jumping out of his amplifier. It’s as if all of his guitar influences, way too many to name here, are standing behind him in continuous support of his immense talent. 

A consummate professional, Pat stepped into Alive Again without missing a beat. When people hear Pat play his guitar they will suddenly be very aware of the depth of Pat's talents. He brings to the table everything from rhythm playing to soloing. The power, nuance, and intricacies of Chicago’s music are not lost on Pat and he conveys them to the audience with a practiced skill and technique. 

Pat is an electrical engineer by day, as well as dedicated husband and father. Alive Again is very happy to welcome him to the band and very fortunate to have his skills and professionalism as part of this unique group of musicians!
