Former Fuel drummer brings new garage band to Killington

Friday & Saturday, Feb. 8-9—9 p.m.— Kevin Miller’s band Smashed is set to take to the stages at the Pickle Barrel Nightclub, Friday and Saturday, Feb. 8-9 at 9 p.m. This is set to be a performance unlike any other, so grab your drinks and hold on tight.

Kevin Miller is known for his former membership in Tantric and Fuel during the 90s. Over the seven successful years as Fuel’s drummer, Miller contributed to numerous hits including “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” “Innocent,” and “Shimmer.” Miller has previously played at the Pickle Barrel during his early years. Wanting to get back to his roots as a musician, Miller, started up a garage band with friends to jam out and sip bourbon like old times, but without all of the corporate pressure.

A year and a half ago, Miller’s friend and former manager heard bits of the new band’s tunes and immediately sensed a new beginning.

Kevin Miller’s Smashed is a band that can only be described as a “straight up bad ass rock band.” There’s no makeup and no BS, just ripped jeans, beer, and the true roots of American rock and roll. The band specializes in covers ranging from Bon Jovi to The Eagles, and even some Fuel songs for old time’s sake. They have played at notable casinos in Atlantic City including the Borgata, and make trips to Florida to play at the Hard Rock Café. One of their favorite venues was an old 1800s playhouse in Pennsylvania where they turned a sit-down dinner into a rockin’ concert. Each of the six band members is talented in their own way, allowing for a wide range of vocals during each song.

Catch the debut performance at Pickle Barrel, 1741 Killington Road, Killington. Tickets can be purchased online at or at Jax Food & Games. This is a 21-plus only show.
